Stripey Scarf

I always like those striped scarves with a solid color and a coordinating self-striping color, so when I saw these yarns, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  Buying a yarn with a specific project in mind is more rare than I should probably admit, but it's always nice when these things work out exactly as you intended.

Stash busting hat

This past year, I have been trying to use some of my long stashed yarns. This is some wool/soy silk self-striping yarn that has been in a drawer forever and finally became a cute child's hat. I think I had intended this yarn to be a scarf at one point, but somehow misplaced the rest of the yarn...so we make do with what we have.
