If you have seen my previous posts I have received a lot of yarn from KP'er Reyna. I am making 2 sweaters for her Grandson Georgie but it is just too hot to knit at the moment. These little items I can make 1st thing.......I am an early bird & never feel guilty about knitting at 6am!!

There are 2 DK baby short row hats but the 3 preemie size, with the little top knots, are from a single beautiful 50g silky ball of yarn. It is Chinese yarn so I took it to be 4ply and used size 3mm and 3.25mm needles for them. There is a little bit of yarn left but not enough to make a 4th preemie hat.

Wish I had more hours in the day....................

your work is so loving and lovely. Just a thought - - when you have just a scrap like that beautiful yarn it can be a stripe or 2 in a little hat. That way nothing goes to waste. I have a box by my nest of little pieces and when a color looks like a match I stripe it in. It is better if you have enough for 2 rows.

Thank you ;o)

It will be used for stripes, I made these hats before in a similar yarn and put a couple of stripes in from 'leftovers'.
