As of yesterday this shawl was finished. At least in terms of the knitting portion, bound off but ends not tucked in. But I looked at just how much yarn I had left over and decided I could certainly get another section in before binding off again. So I…

I had just a little bit of this yarn left over. I thought I might have just enough for a hat left over. Turns out I had just enough for a small hat for a not quite 2 year old. He was having a cranky day when I brought the hat in but apparently he […]
