Making progress on the scrappy blanket!
This summer I made plenty of scrap bibs from the pattern Girly bib. Here we have one in action!
Blanket in progress! I’ve shown you something similar before, with this scrap yarn blanket. That one is resting for now.
I work simple garter stitch strips, seaming them together when finished. Combining colors are as much fun as the knitting itself! Here I’ve collected all scraps and odd skeins in red, pink, brown and orange/ dark yellow.
I’m combining threads to get a bulky weight, and working on 8 mm needles. Such an awesome way to use up some stash yarn! I’m using several “boring” skeins here that looks much more fun combined in a color palette like this. 😊
The palette is very similar to what I used for my Marled Magic mystery shawl.
Here you go!
Improvised bonnet; 3,5 year old size

K2tog around, = 7 sts
K1, (K2tog) to end = 4 sts
Add pompom and braids!
For a while there I went completely nuts about knitting bulky hats. A perfect way to use up some stash, and also whipping up some gifts for Christmas. Let’s just say that these two are not the only ones. 🙂
Yarn; Araucania Azapa + Drops Air held double
Pattern: Charlotte’s Split Brim Bonnet
With the scraps from my own bonnet, I improvised one for my boy! The white wasn’t enough on it’s own, so I incorporated some scraps in one of his favourite colors.
Notes to come!
Had to do some digging among very old blog posts to find the name and source of a very nice yarn scrap I had. Normally I always remember, but not this time! It is Azapa from Araucania – a merino, alpaca and silk blend originally planned for a Lime Queen Tunic, but ended up as my wonderful Esjan shawl.
Now holding one thread Azapa with two threads Drops Air to make a winter hat for me!
Raid i garnskåpet efter blandade rosa och lila för att göra Stephen Wests Marled Mania cardigan. Behöver använda upp lite av mina sock- och sjalgarner – har många ensamma härvor som oftast inte räcker till projekt jag vill göra.
Stash dive for various pinks and purples to make Stephen West’s Marled Mania cardigan. Need to use up.some of my sock and shawl skeins – have too many single skeins, which is often not enough for projects I want to make.
Blandade restgarner i grönt, tillsammans med Drops Air i både vitt och grått. Blev inte så dumt, tycker jag!
Various green scraps from stash, held together with Drops Air, both white and gray. Not too shabby, I think!
