Hat Attack!

With the end of NaKniSweModo I wasn't sure what to do next. So I cast on for a bunch of charity hats.

There was a simple button-tab hat in Meriboo from Frog Tree. The yarn is lovely to work with.

There was a Stashbuster Spiral inspired hat made from tiny sample skeins of Crystal Palace yarns we had lying around the office at the shop. This is several colors of Bunny Hop, Merino 5 and a little Panda Silk DK.

We get loads of tiny, sample skeins of yarn. I can't bear to throw them out but it's challenging to find a use for them.

Then I knit Opus Spicatum. Except I thought my Cashmereno was aran-weight when it's really DK so I had to swap out Mission Falls Wool for Cascade 220 Superwash as the contrast color. There's still a size disparity between the yarns but it's not as noticeable.

Still blocking on a salad plate.

I have enough yarn left to knit another one.
