the first dozen
With a dozen hats finished, I'd guesstimate that I'm about half way through the DK scraps I have on hand. These scraps are leftover from my Mom who bought several colours of Cashmerino DK for a baby sweater for Gavin's grandson. She splurged on the yarn to make it a very special sweater. The pullover had a puppy face done in colourwork on the front and it was the favourite sweater for baby's first year. I like to think that she'd be happy with the use I've found for these scraps. Mom was always keenly interested in the fun and oddball things that knitters around the world were up to. She was particularly amused by the Yarn Harlot's sock scavenger hunt. In fact, were she alive today, I imagine she'd be knitting little woollen hats along with me.
