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.
