I have been trying to use up my existing yarn stash, rather than buying new yarn. One of the things in my yarn stash is a collection of plastic bags that have holes in them, and are waiting to be turned into plarn (AKA plastic yarn), for crocheting.

I reached out to friends and family asking for suggestions of what to make with it, and one of my cousins asked if I could make her some ear savers with it. Of course! I made one for each of my family members that are nurses, and sent to them for Mother’s Day.
