I’ve been knitting for quite a while, and when I went back to visit my parents over winter break, I discovered I had WAY more yarn than I thought I did stuffed in the back of my closet. Some of it is yarn I’d bought, and others were donated. I knew I had some donated pastel variegated baby yarn hanging around, but I swear I kept. finding. more. skeins. I’m still not sure I managed to round up all of it…
Anyway, I don’t have much use for baby yarn myself, so I’m planning on knitting it and donating the results.
So far I’ve made two hats:
A pair of baby booties (this picture is pre-wash — annoyingly, one grew about 25% after washing, so I think I’m going to have to rip it out and re-knit. Two tips: if you’ve got yarn that may or may not have been knitted and ripped out, wash it before knitting so any kinks will loosen up BEFORE you work with it, and always note down what size needles you used in case you need to redo something later.):
And 1-1/3 baby socks (which are coming out very well for my first socks ever):
I still have almost two skeins. I’m thinking of doing a sweater next….
