To try and get up to date I am including these weeks together.
Week #3. No yarn purchased!!!! At least this week saw a FO. The last Snow Bunnies for now.
Used the Ella Rae Red to finish this hat also.
Week #4. And then it all fell apart. I had to take my sister to the airport, and was in the neighborhood of my future LYS, Nomad Yarns. So I dropped in to get a cream skein of Ella Rae Superwash for some color work I plan to do on a baby boy sweater. And then found she had Hayfield Chunky, so added that for another Robin Hood for another baby boy. And then needed a lightweight yarn, Bamboo Pop, for Sleeping Cedars for an April Baby Girl.
But, a hat was finished, so not all a bust! I was planning to make a hat for the last great-niece using this pattern. But then decided I wanted a Cloche style hat with a bow. So I set out to make it up as I went along. I present to you, Grace’s Graceful.
You got it, leftover Ella Rae Red #27, bow in Brown #125
The bow is meant to be worn to the side, not front. I am using the natural roll of the St st to make the Seed st side seem to dip. That brim was created using short rows. Since the photo I have tacked down the top corners of the bow. Once held up it wanted to droop forward. I hope to see a photo of it on her head soon!!!
So, Stash Deets:
Stash On Hand – 63,969 yards
Knitted Stash – 159 yards
Stash Added – 1277 yards
Ending Stash 1-28-17: 65,087 yards!!! Gah! That’s 1000+ yards more than I started the year with. I wished I had knit up a little more so far this month, but I still had a few days to make it up.
