A while back I was looking through my stash and discovered these
10 balls of Regia yarn in assorted colours and types, but just one ball in each colour. I was given these by my daughter. They had come into her magazine and no one in the office wanted them.
I did knit a cardigan for a premature baby with one of them, you may remember this. But as one ball isn't enough for a pair of socks they have been languishing in the stash cupboard.
Until now....... with the constant stream of babies that flow through our lives I have decided to knit hats, lots of hats and maybe mitts too if there is enough left from a ball. We will see. I cast on the first one last night. Yes, I know, I said I wouldn't cast on til my WIP's were done. But once you get an idea in your head......
My first hat is a free pattern from Ravelry, originally printed in Prima magazine back in July 2009. It has a pretty lacy edge. I did take a picture but its come out blurry, so you will have to make do with the one below. I love to see how these yarn knit up. I have an assortment of different patterns so we will see what we get. At least these little hats are portable and make great gifts to have on hand.
Work on Purple Haze is coming along, one sleeve and half a front to do then the finishing off. Frilled dress is still in its bag and I do a few rows on the ten stitch blanket when I get bored.
