Knitting - take a bag of blue

Whilst looking through my yarn stash the other day I pulled out a bag of blue yarn, all DK and also acrylic. As I was needing a inbetween project I decided I would turn it into baby hats, all hopefully a bit different.

This is my progress thus far







These are 6-12 months in size, 15" around the head. I'm using a very basic pattern and then just adding the detail, different ribbing etc.

My book arrived today.  I've had a quick flick through and it looks very interesting, some great adverts, one in particular caught my eye for a bracelet wool holder, what a great idea, but one that I don't think caught on as I can't seem to find one. I also had a comment by the author Lucinda Gosling on last weeks blog post so that was a result. My new Simply Knitting magazine also arrived, so plenty of reading to be done

  4. You have to be one of the best stash busters around.
    I trust all these wonderful reading materials will be gracing a table here and there for some time to come.
