Jas loves it and has worn it to school this morning, ah how nice (wiping a tear from my eye :))

YAY, this is another stash-busting project to tick off the list!

    1. Hi catnsparrow,
      Thank you, yes, I must admit stash-busting is wonderfully satisfying and keeping a log on it even better, I find it amazing to see the amounts of yarn I am knitting, it never feels that much whilst I am busy so the totals are a bit mind-blowing when I see them!!
      Thanks so much for visiting.

  5. Wow! Great hat ;)
    Making the most of what we have on hand and beautiful finished projects ~ what more can a girl ask for? lol
    I've been debating making some socks too ~ not sure if I'll pull out the electronic knitting machine or by hand???

      Great thing socks :) I look forward to seeing yours. Have you decided - will you be knitting them by hand or the machine?

  6. Nice hat. It's always heartwarming when the recipient loves what we make for them. :-)

    1. Hi Kathryn,
      It is so wonderful, the problem is that when they love the project I make for them, I whip out my Ravelry Library and ask if they maybe want this and oooh oooh, what about this - and if they find something they like, I tend to cast it on straight away! So ultimately I am creating handmade wardrobes!
      Thanks for visiting.

    1. Hi Minding My Own Stitches,
      It is rare, Jas is a great recipient though and enjoys most things I knit, my youngest on the other-hand complained to me that one day our entire home may be filled with handmade stuff, and why can't we just buy jerseys like everyone else! LOL, she does like the cowls, caps and gloves though but that is about it :D
      Thanks so much for visiting have a super weekend.

      It is isn't it, I do hope I can get all those goodies done before the end of the year, it would be a great achievement if I manage.
