Stash busting hat making
Part of my challenge this year is to use up some of the stash - if for no other reason than to free up space for more yarn :)
I can't even recognise where some of this yarn came from - I particularly like this particular purple but didn't have enough for an entire hat on its own, so I did all the ribbing in it. The blue/green is the remains of the Utiku Multi Colours (gem) while the pink and yellow remnants are from I don't-know-where.
The hat below is made with a very clever pattern that I got as a freebie when I purchased some yarn from a small Australian company. It's knitted sideways, with short-rows.
