Another Christmas gift! Using the very last of the purple yarn to make a matching adult size bonnet for G’s mother! Yarn used: Drops Eskimo in white, Drops Air and Järbo Naturgarn Nr1 in pink/purple. I especially like how the pom-pom turned out!
Yarn prepped for more Christmas gift knitting. One beanie, and another bonnet! Stash busting some Drops Eskimo held together with Drops Air.
Stash diving to the max! This thick & thin wool had been in my stash for years! Yay for Christmas gift knitting 🙂 💜

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!
