Donated Hats

Knit hats

I finally sat down and woven in ends on a whole slew of hats over the last couple weeks, pulling out many of the remaining hats from my last rounds of donations. cashmere knit hats

Simple cashmere hats made from recycled cashmere yarn left over from other projects. knit hats

Simple textured hats- the blue is in one of my favorite yarns, Shepherd’s Wool Worsted. It’s a beautifully soft yarn that really shows off texture and cables wonderfully. wrist warmers

Fringed wool scarf Midnightsky Fibers

A fringed wool scarf, made from fabric similar to lightweight dress pants. I made it extra wide, ala a blanket scarf. Green Handknit hats

Question: how many hats can you get out of a skein on Eco +? Answer: 6, if you use the last bit up with some other leftovers for stipes. (4-5 if I had done longer fold up brims)

PS- those brown hats below? Also Shepherd’s Wool Worsted.

Turkey Trip


Made from yarn from Turkey Trip Make in Turkey Midnightsky Fibres http://Midnightskyfibers.comWhen I went to Turkey I found a couple of yarn stores, so of course picked up a bit of yarn! Most of the yarn was acrylic or acrylic and wool blends and were made in Turkey.  I picked up some plain yarns and a few self striping fun skeins as well. A couple skeins of the yarn I picked up had metallic thread running through it and was quite fuzzy. I held these yarns together with leftover wool yarns from my stash to tone down the sparkle make thick warm hats.  Still looks a bit like a unicorn threw up on them, but hopefully in a fun and not overwhelming way.

Several of these hats are variations on the Elevation Hat.

Wee Baby Gift

Knit baby gift- booties, mittens, socks

A small baby gift for a friend.

Socks- made up the pattern as I went along,  leftover sock yarn in a circle pattern formed with knits and purls.

Mittens- quick baby mittens in Baby Ull

Booties- I made these from some felted cashmere (gray) and some 100% wool felt (cream) using the Purlsoho Felt Baby Shoes pattern. These are a fun project to cut out several pairs of at a time. I made a handful of these in both solid wool and 100% cashmere, adding contrasting stitches or small shell buttons to some of the pairs.
