Stash Bust Update, May 2014

Stashing Busting for Halos of Hope

Clifford Chemo Hat crocheted by Darleen HopkinsLast week I mentioned how lucky I was to receive some beautiful samples of Cascade Yarn.  (See post here.)  I also made a brief mention of Halo of Hope’s latest hat collection campaign, the Kanine Kap Kampaign.  I wanted to transform some of the cotton Cascade Yarn into a dog hat for this collection but was stumped.  What kind of dog can I make with bright red yarn….hmmm… Seriously, I don’t know where my brain was.  It hasn’t been that long since I was teaching my boys how to read…with CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG easy readers!!!!  Finally my brain fart ended and ding! the light bulb went off.   I just love Avalon and it was the perfect yarn and the perfect red for this hat.  I didn’t use a pattern.  I kind of made up the ears and nose as I went along and had to work them a couple of times as I had to limit the hat to just the one skein of yarn.  I ended up with about 8 inches of yarn to spare.  The nose and whites of the eyes are scrap yarn and he has shiny black button eyes.  This hat weighs in at 3 3/4 ounces.

Total weight of the hats made in the 2014 challenge to date: 1 pound 12 3/4 ounces
