Last Minute Stash-Busting

capucine for Kay too

stash-busting

capucine 2 tone

Did I mention that I LOVE knitting this pattern?
It is soooo easy, soooooo quick and soooooo much fun!
I will definitely be making more of these caps.
This is my second Capucine I am making for Kay.
I love the colour combo, I think it works really well together.

This cap took me all of 3 1/2 hours to make from beginning to end - how is that for instant gratification?!!

This is another stash-buster weighing in at 116g.

Add that to the total thus far:

4'067g
116g

    1. Hi Linda,
      I must admit that I am hoping to achieve my goal and finish at least the next project before the end of the year, that will be awesome as then my stash-drawer will only have a couple of balls of yarn left in it. I am very grateful for your challenge, thank you, it has motivated me to move forward in a big way :)
