I made my son a hat a few years ago using these yarns. It was a drop stitch maze like creation that came out great. He has been hinting, or rather remarking, that he'd like another hat. I found the rest of the yarn from the old hat and decided to just trial another pattern. This is such a simple 5 inch rib which will be followed by 6 inches of stockinette in the round. I am sure I don't have enough of the off white color to knit 6 inches, but it will make a nice stripe. Now, I'll have to dig through some more leftover stash to find another color....
I intend to knit him an entirely new hat of entirely new yarn for his birthday, but I wanted to practice and make sure this one fits his head well. Hats can be difficult to fit, I think.
On another leftovers note, I mentioned a new recipe I might share. Well, it simply wasn't good enough. I did bring the leftovers to work with me last weekend, but tossed most of them. (It was a garbanzo bean salad base)
Are you doing anything with leftovers in your life lately?
I talk more in the comments!
