There are even more finished hats this week! I’ve lost track of which ones I’ve shown off and which I haven’t, so here’s a photo of all of them:
Can we talk about how different the colours look close-up compared to that group shot?
I seriously need to get a proper camera.
Anyway. I do know I haven’t shown you this one because I made it last Saturday, and I can tell you now I’m never ever making a hat with this yarn again.
Stitch definition? What’s that? Never met her.
Honestly this thing will probably just fall apart one day because sewing in the ends properly was impossible. I’ve no idea if they went under/over/through any stitches at all because even up close, in really good light, all I can see is fuzz.
I also have some non-hat FOs. Remember the snowflake book my mum sent me? I decided I want to make them all to see which I like best, which isn’t actually as huge a task as I first thought.
So far they’ve all been only 3 or 4 rounds, and the most complex one took me just 15 minutes.
These are my finished snowflakes so far:
The different threads seem to give me slightly different sizes, with the silver sparkle being the biggest.
When they’re all finished I’m going to make some of them into ornaments to hang on a tree, and some into very dainty garlands.
I think some designs would also work well as coasters if I make them with thicker yarn. I’m definitely going to have a go.
Any more suggestions for ways to use 100 tiny snowflakes? Got any FOs to share? Let me know in the comments!
