Sprinting for the Line

My stash busting continues with a lovely snug tweedy hat, complete with a bobble on top.

This is some Aran weight yarn I've had hanging around for years, so it was good to finally use it up.  Details of this project can he found on my Ravelry page, here.

Far too warm to wear now but I'm all set up for the winter!

A very quick knit, it was made as part of my Tour de France KAL.  I really am busting that stash.  There's only a few more days left of the Tour, so I'm aiming for a final dash for the line to see how much stash I can get through before it ends.  See you at the finishing line.

I've finally worked out how to link in to other people's blogs, and so I'm joining in with Linda's Crafty Corner Stash Buster Link party.  It's great to see how other people are using up their stash - very inspiring.


  1. I really like your Tour de France KAL. What a good idea to use that time consuming event to knit away your stash.
    This hat is nice with the little surprise in the pattern. It surely looks warm and I hope you won't need it for at least 4 more months :-).

  2. I started a hat a while back I must root it out from the under the pile to finish! I like yours better though x

  3. I'm in Linda's stash-busting party too - it is great to see what others are making and bust some stash at the same time. That's a very satisfying pompom on the top of your very cozy-looking hat!

  4. I belong to that party myself although I can not link this month due to my total inactivity in the yarn department.
    Love your hat.
