Lettuce and Purple Mystery.

I'm not even "ish" joining in with Carole and the crew this week. The topic is David Bowie songs, and I have only one. It's a good one - and I listened to it on repeat a few times last month (as I do every Christmas - it's one of my very favorites)...and then again today. (bear with the opening "stuff" - seeing the whole scene from David arriving and then singing with Bing is wonderful).

but now, how about a little Charlie to lighten the mood?! He loves to "explore" in my yarn room and this morning we checked out the basket of hibernating WIPs. I found a lot of socks, an afghan, a hat and half of a mitten. That hat was the winner today. All it needed was a pompom...and a model.
Raveled here
And done! Charlie loves to try on hats, and pose for the camera (especially in front of a mirror).

So one project done.

and I frogged the mitten(s).  Yeah, I don't really need mittens with holes...even pretty lacy holes. I remember buying these four skeins of Rios last January - two skeins of Lettuce and two of Purple Mystery. The idea was to make the hat, the mittens and the matching cowl and coordinate the colors. Fast forward 12 months longer interested. (this is mostly how I've acquired stash). So now I have a skein of Lettuce and almost two full skeins of Purple Mystery. It's close to 660 yards of worsted weight. What would you do with it?

I'd trade it on Ravelry if you think you won't use it. I love the hate!

Finishing hibernating WIPs from the basket sounds so much more fun with Charlie! Maybe you and/or your group at church could use the yarn for prayer shawls?

If you don't have something in mind now, maybe the yarn just needs to wait around a little until something pops up. I've enjoyed the Trip Mitts which would use some of the yarn (but not nearly all). Charlie is so fun with his hat tipped just so.

Adorable hat; adorable model! I have about 600 yards of some nice worsted weight yarn that I like . . . but have no idea what to DO with. So if you figure something out, let me know, k?

Super sweet Charlie! Love those colors together... but I don't know what to do with it. It's how I've acquired much of my stash, as well! Or, like yesterday, I found a bag full of some lovely Habu... but no clue what I intended to do with it! Gah.

I dunno- more hats or a cowl if you want to use the colors together. Glad you have a cooperative model!

Perhaps donate to the prayer shawl miinistry as suggested by Bonny or donate if you're sure you won't use...Or make Charlie another hat! Too cute!
