I am not someone who counts down the days until I can put up my Christmas tree. I’m not eagerly awaiting fall and all things pumpkin spice. I love summer and would much rather be warm than cold. However, I do enjoy knitting for people I like, so I cast on the first Christmas gift of 2022 yesterday.
This will be a waffle beanie in Supernatural Yarns Fairy DK, color Amortentia. I’m pretty sure it will have a pompom, but I’m not sure yet if it will be a matching yarn pom or a coordinating faux fur pom. It partly depends on how much yarn is left! Which would you go for?
After spending so much knitting time on big projects, it’s a treat to knit something as small and quick as a hat. Here’s hoping they appreciate it!
Happy Sunday, friends!
Very pretty yarn 🧶❤️
I love the look of those faux fur pom poms but would not be likely to wear one. Gifting them is so much more fun.
That looks like a fun beanie! I would use the same yarn if there’s enough leftover, but part of my reasoning is then I wouldn’t have a small amount of leftover yarn sitting in the stash making me wonder what I was going to do with it. 😉
That’s a very good reason!! I had enough leftover so it will be matching pom!
It’s one way to reduce the scraps stash! 😉
Beautiful yarn. I vote for a pink faux fur pompom.
I would too except I remembered I wanted to do these gifts all from stash and I don’t have a pink faux fur pom, so matching pom it will be!
Really pretty beanie!! It is always nice to work on something quick after a bunch of big projects 🙂
Definitely! Plus hats are always fun. 🙂
