I am getting to the point in the knitting of next winters hats that all I have are a couple bags of bits and pieces of yarn. I like this kind of knitting because it challenges me. I want every hat to look like something my own kids would wear. They have to have a nice look and texture to the pattern. Most of all the color must flow so the hat looks well planned. I even throw in bits of Hand spun yarn leftover from other projects. I like to go from this to that.
