Stash Bust 2014, 3rd November Update

Gift-a-long hat, La Villa Lace Brim Slouch Hat for Halos of HopeA Gift-A-Long Hat for Halos of Hope

Two weeks ago I mentioned the Gift-A-Long that is occurring on Ravelry.  This is such a fun event, please check it out.  It is still going strong through Dec. 31, 2014.  The participants are having a lot fun sharing their WIPs, FOs and random thoughts.  You never know what you might find or learn there; lots of new designers and patterns as well as learning what Vegemite and Marmite are.  I gotta try this stuff!

While searching the GAL crochet designers, I discovered this beautiful hat by Betty Fay Wallace, La Villa Lace Brim Slouch Hat, and just had to try it.  I’m so pleased with the hat.  I haven’t made anything like this before.  It is crocheted in mercerized cotton and it is gorgeous.  With three more hanks of this same yarn in my stash it is very likely I will make more of these.

This hat weighs 3.5 ounces.  This is my fourth hat this month.  There’s one week left in November and I have a goal to make a couple more!

Total hats made in the 2014 Stash Bust Challenge: 20
Total weight of the hats to date: 4 pounds, 4.25 ounces.
