Some smaller projects...
I've been having fun with some smaller projects--a panta headband and a couple of baby/toddler hats. The panta was made from yarn from Artfibers that I've had in my stash for a couple of years. It is gorgeous yarn and so much fun to work with! I've got yarn enough to make one more if I use a bit of a contrasting color for the band along the back of the neck.
The purple cotton is from SCRAP, again, it's been in my stash for ages! The pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I just need to make the i-cord for the larger hat, which will travel with us to DC as a gift for a friend's daughter. I wound up making two because the first is definitely WAY too small for Ella--no matter, I'll just stash the smaller away until I need a baby gift. It would go nicely with the Baby Bolero from One Skien that I have of the same yarn.
I added one ball of chocolate colored Lion Brand Cotton to my stash. I am planning to make washcloths along with homemade lemongrass soap to give to people who host us while we are in DC. The chocolate color will look so yummy along with the other colors I already have. It's all packed away and ready for the plane! Hopefully, I'll have more to report when we return from our trip!
