hristmas has come and gone and I thought I was going to slow down some.......Nope.. I decided to keep reducing my stash for the past few weeks. Well that is all fine and good but my mistake was posting pictures on facebook. I started doing extra thick hats (double strand worsted weight). Well the first one I did was dark purple. It turned out really pretty. I figured.. ok I will just knit and put them in my rubbermaid tote for next season... nope.. Several people jumped on the hats!!!..
the purple one was purchased and the lady ordered mittens to match.
purple double thick Hat and mittens
This is made with the bernat premium yarn. I absolutely love this yarn to work with but it is so difficult to find.
the tan and orange went to my Daughter who had an orange jacket, the light blue with navy went to my son in law. the purple on the right lower side went to my Daughter in law. All these were extra christmas gifts. Who doesn't like getting warm hats for christmas,, right?
Right now I am working on a medium grey hat with white and lavender and matching solid textured mittens to go with it.

The mittens are in production and I will come back and insert the finished project when they are completed.
What an awesome way to purge your stash !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After this I will be making another purple set for someone that ordered it and then it will be on to a couple pairs of worsted weight socks I think.
I am having fun mixing and matching colours and since I have this pattern in my webstore you too can purge and have fun mixing and matching.
As for the mittens the pattern is from drops designs (sorta) they are called Astrid Mittens.
Well I am off to work some more on the mittens white the cats snuggle and try to keep warm on this windy day in the Maritimes
