This week’s project is baby beanies. I have several balls of very nice yarn (merino/silk blends, that kind of thing) that are too small to do much else with. They’d make a good striped scrap scarf project but I don’t have enough yardage to complete one and I’m not interested in hoarding them for a future project like that (I do enough dragon-like treasured craft supply hoarding as it is).
As you can see in the photo, one is a nice forest green. That one’s just about done–I just need to work in the ends and give it a light blocking. The next hat on deck will either be maroon (I know it looks more fuchsia in the photo–anyone have tips for capturing accurate red shades on not-awesome cameras?) or maroon and deep pumpkin striped. I may save the pumpkin for its own hat. After working on a couple fiddly projects, I’m enjoying the mindlessness of these simple beanies. They’re not complicated to make, but the end result looks quite nice because of the light yarn weight and nice fiber (well, I think they look nice, anyway–haha), and I can catch up on some Netflix while I work on them. Which is obviously super important. 😉
What are you working on this week? Do you like to take breaks in between more elaborate projects to do simpler things, or do you prefer to dive right into the next one? Let me know in the comments!
