Using the Scraps
I've been feeling a bit guilty that there were still some semi-balls of yarn left in the bag my neighbour gave me to knit for her for market. So yesterday I went back to them and knitted a stripey hat. I had to double the thin yarns, which I did by winding them on my ball winder so that I could take a thread from the middle and from the outside at once. The pattern comes originally from the Ashford Book of Spinning, though I just did it from memory. I'm really done now! I'm going to see my neighbour this afternoon, so will give her all the bedsocks and hats I've knitted.
