Last, but not least… but what is it?
December 31, 2014 and my last hat of the year for the 2014 Stash Bust Challenge was just finished. I didn’t think I’d have time for another hat this year but then remembered this hat I had started a couple of months ago and hadn’t finished. There’s a reason I didn’t finish it…fun fur/eyelash yarn. I’m not a fan of this type of yarn but for some reason (clearance aisle a few years ago!) there are a few skeins of this stuff in my possession. UGH. There’s no pattern for this critter. I just made a hat. As it progressed it was kinda large so I added some super bulky yarn as an edging to tighten it up. Then, to use up what was left, made some ears-why not?-to create a critter of some sort. The edging part is pretty tight on Buffy’s head so I’m hoping it will fit a large child. The good news is I used up all the super bulky and the dark blue fur yarn, less than a yard leftover of each, and created a hat some child will (hopefully) like. The bad news, I have more of this fur stuff, lots more.
This hat weighs 4.25 ounces.
