I took two balls of wool with me for the few days with two specific projects in mind. The Little Woodland Warrior Hat from Sublime 630. I have made it before but Big Sis needs a bigger one and Little M has taken a shine to it too.
The bigger one is made from Sirdar Supersoft Aran which is left over from my next Minerva make waiting to be revealed in September. I admit it is a bit strange to show you the leftover project before you see the real deal but that is the way it is!
The purple one is from a ball of chunky given to me by one of my crochet ladies. She worked on a local yarn stall on the market and often gave me the odd ball of yarn - very kind indeed. I think it is called Marble by James C Brett.
The flower is from my pattern on the left and I added tassels because they are just a bit cute. I love using up every last bit of a ball of wool, there is something really satisfying in getting it spot on. This is what was left of the purple.
In my latest attempt to only make things that we need or that go with other things I have to say that the grey hat goes brilliantly with Big Sis' hand-me-down spotty scarf and crochet mitts. The purple hat was made specifically to go with this hand- me-down coat I received last week. I have good friends haven't I?
