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!

Result of stash bust. Turned out great! The four year old recipient seemed to approve very much! 🙂💕

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

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!
