More Stash Busting Hats

So yesterday I popped in to share with you some mittens I made, using up my stash by making assorted bits for charity with odds of yarn. Today I am sharing 3 hats I have made in the last week.


The first 2 are following the same pattern, which I completed at the weekend.


This is the Easy Peasy Chunky Slouch hat pattern by Michelle Ferguson. The top one is the remainder of my Sirdar Freya in a toddler size, and the second is in an adult size using Filande Nomade.

And the third, which I finished just this evening, is the Basic Newborn Hat by Hooked on Tilly. I used oddments of Sirdar Pure 4ply and Scheepjes Sunkissed.
I am really thrilled to be cracking through my stash and helping others at the same time. I am almost ready to fill my box to pop in the post to Knit For Peace.

Cosy Mittens

Hello all! I have another finished object to share with you which I completed at the weekend.

These are the Crossed Stitch Fingerless Gloves by Little Golden Nook.

Aren’t they just lovely? Even in a fuzzy yarn like Sitdar Freya, the pattern texture shows through.

I had planned to make these mittens part of my donation to Knit for peace, but it’s such a struggle to give them up. Having said that, with the crazy warm weather we have been getting recently I wouldn’t need them at all, so if I really wanted to I could nock out another pair when winter comes around again.

Some Charity Hats

At the beginning of the week I share with you some mittens I made for Knit For Peace, to use up my random oddments of yarn. Well today I am popping in with some hats for the same purpose.

The first I made was the ‘Very Good Hat‘ pattern by Tamara Kelly on Moogly, in baby size, using the leftover Malabrigo worsted I used for my dad’s Christmas present.

I then went on to make the 30 Minute Basic Beanie by Diane Serviss. It actually took me 45 minutes but I was sipping coffee and gawping out of the train window at the snow too. I used the last of the Patons Big Fab which I initially bought to make the brim of the first ever hat I made for my fiance 4 years ago.

Then finally I made this little baby hat out of the remaining 15g of Noro Haniwa. I made this one up as I went along.
So that’s 3 more yarns cleared from my stash!
