Along about the middle of January I thought "if I just made 10 hats a month, by the first of November I would have 100 hats to send to the shelter." Easy enough, so I started making two hats a day. When I had the ten finished, I just kept on going and by the 31st of January I had 30 completed.hats. Since then I have brought that number up to 56. Feels so good to have a head start on my hats, now just need to keep up with my ten a month commitment. They are all packed in a tote and ready to go.
After the hat marathon I was ready to start on a new shawl-----enough of the hats for a while but still trying to stand by my New Year's resolution of using more of my stash.
With that in mind I made another Comfort Shawl with Lion Brand Homespun, a simple pattern using just half double crochet. The next shaw in a dusty lavender yarn was perfect for V. Noel's V Stitch Prayer Shawl. This is a free pattern on Ravelry and one I like a lot with just about any yarn.
