First week of November and I have two more hats to be donated to Halos of Hope! I was so excited to receive the gifted yarn that I just had to make some hats right away.  The first is a pattern that was suggested through the Hat of the Month Ravelry group.  Each month, the members of the group decided on a free hat pattern to stitch over the month.  I’ve found some great patterns this way.  The second hat is a pattern I found written for bulky weight yarn.  I wanted to use the gifted ombre yarn paired up with some solid yarn I had in my stash.  I had to tweak it slightly to adjust for the different gauge but I’m really happy with how it turned out.  Click on the photos to be brought to the project pages and the links to the free patterns.   The two hats weigh just under  11 ounces! Heavy hats!

Total hats made in the 2014 Stash Bust Challenge: 18
Total weight of the hats to date: 3 pounds, 13 ounces.

PS-If you haven’t joined Ravelry yet, it is time to do so!  Look for an amazing announcement later this week!
