As promised, here is my post-Christmas ‘ta da!’ post, filled with pictures of everything I’ve been busily working on over the past few months!
Mostly it’s been hats, scarves and fingerless gloves – quick projects that mostly use a single skein of yarn, or less. Stashbusting, as you all know, has been a Major Goal of mine recently, and beautiful gifts to give people has merely been a nice side effect of that 😀
Let’s start with the hats:
A fine collection of hats, if I do say so myself! And so on to the fingerless gloves:
I do love fingerless gloves 😀 and doing them in 4 ply/sock yarn means they’re warm but not too thick and cumbersome.
Then I made a couple of scarves, because who doesn’t like a scarf?
And my final Christmas present was this cushion, which I worked up in two days flat and gave to my brother. It’s in Stylecraft Cosy, one side in ‘Midnight’ and one in ‘Glacier’. I used a 10mm hook and worked it up in single crochet. Sometimes it’s nice to let the yarn do all the work 😀
Phew. I was busy! And used up quite a lot of stash, which I’m very pleased with. I feel like I’m heading into 2019 with a clean slate. Mostly. I mean, okay, I got a lot of yarn for Christmas, but that totally doesn’t count, yes?
