My gift hat has been completed and has its pompom. Though I loved the suggestion of a pink faux fur pompom, I remembered I wanted to do these gifts completely from stash, and I didn’t have a fur pom that worked. What I did have was exactly enough yarn left over for one good-sized pompom!
That literally used up all the yarn, and a I had to use a scrap of another yarn to attach it. I’m calling that a big win! It was so satisfying that I moved right on to my next gift knit, a pair of fingerless gloves. I chose a pattern called Felicity Mitts (free on Rav) and some creamy Malabrigo Sock from the stash. The first mitt went so quickly and I was in love, convinced I’d found my new favorite mitt pattern.
I do love it! Look at the dainty lace that will block out so nicely! But now I have a huge case of second-mitt syndrome and am having the hardest time casting on for mitt two. Thank goodness I still have plenty of time before Christmas!
Happy Saturday, friends.
That pompom is perfect. Nice work.
I love the dainty lace edge also.
Gorgeous gifts! I love that you are knitting gifts from stash this year. Someday I will do that.
I’ll probably regret it as it gets closer to Christmas and I’m frantically trying to finish them!
The had and mitt are both gorgeous!! Awesome idea knitting from stash this year 🙂
Well, when you decide you want to give gifts to people you hadn’t budgeted for, you gotta get creative! 🙂
These look great! I think the matching pom-pom is perfect. And I’m currently struggling with second mitt syndrome, too. Best of luck getting past that! 😉
