Stash Bust Update, April and May 2013
When I sat down to write this I realized I didn’t post an update for April. I guess it’s because although I made a lot of hats for Halos of Hope in April, I didn’t make any hats out of my Bernat Cottontots stash. But I do have 3 Stash Bust hats for May.
First, Hooper the Shark. I love this pattern by Monica Miles. She designed it for Halos of Hope and you can own it with a $10 donation to this great charity. The money goes directly to them and is used to pay for postage in shipping their hats. I made a couple adjustments to the pattern for worsted/aran yarn (it’s written for bulky). You can see my adjustments on my Ravelry project page. And if you have friends who knit, they have a knitted version as well!
My second hat is Oink! I made this one on the bus going to and from my youngest son’s field trip. We had a nice day-went to Chattanooga, TN and saw Ruby Falls, an underground waterfall and went to the aquarium. Three hours on the bus each way and I had more than enough time to finish this cutie.
My last one to share with you is a bucket style hat. I was playing around yarn and didn’t follow a pattern. It came out kinda cute. There may be a Bucket Hat pattern in the future…
The 3 hats together weigh in at exactly 12 ounces.
Total Stash Bust Yarn Weight to Date: just under 3 pounds! (almost 1/2 way!!)
Total Stash Bust Hat Count to Date: 13
