Awhile back, I bemoaned my lack of warm winter hats, and vowed to do something about it. That, I did! I now have a dozen handmade winter hats to keep me warm this winter:
It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I really love this one that I dyed with turmeric then knit:
But I’m also very fond of the colorwork on this one:
…and I’m a sucker for black lace!
I really do like them all very much though.
I mean who doesn’t smile upon seeing a Pom Pom!
Although it seems obvious, it’s amazing what a little focused effort can do. Twelve hats!
I’d like to take this concept into 2016 for my hand knit socks. Right now, I have eight pairs. I think with a little focused effort, I can work up to twelve pairs at this time next year! Socks take much abuse, so it is really important to have a good amount in rotation. Some of my socks are heavily mended, too, and this will allow them to streeeeeeetch their lives by not being worn so much.
Best of all, I already have the yarn to make these socks, so no coupons will be spent (I should also mention that the hats I made were all from yarn I had on hand as well!).
First focused effort of 2016 — planned!
