I finished the stashbuster hat on the train this morning and am quite happy with how it turn out. I had to fudge a little near the top but it still looks reasonably professional and artistic, rather than sloppy and home-made. I think it may be a bit bright for charity donation and am seriously tempted to send it in to the Alice Springs Beanie Festival. I knit for love, not money (the amount I could sell a beanie for - even a pure wool beanie - would price my time at only about $3-4/hour which is less than 20% of minimum wasge in Australia) but I would rather the hat be warn than just tucked up in my cupboard for years.
