One of my New Years resolutions is to use up as many of the yarn scraps and ends left over from making gifts as I can. I would like to put them to a good use, not only in terms of being a good steward of resources but also in terms of helping others.
I've decided to make baby hats to donate to an as-yet-undetermined charity (I'd like it to be local). Here are the first of my scrap charity knit baby hats.
I'm honestly not sure where this yarn came from, but I found a small ball of it and it was almost the perfect amount for a cute baby hat.
Kinda cute, don't ya think?
This one is my favorite, though. I used tiny balls of 4 different scrap yarns to make this.
It's made from a bit of handspun angora (brim), some leftover sock yarn, handspun art yarn and a bit of brown cotton yarn (crown).
Kinda looks like a layer cake. What do you think?
Thanks for looking! Happy New Year!
