is what I made on the weekend.
After completing the red one on Friday night except for a few ends left to weave in, all done now, I finished a little baby hat on Saturday.
Both of these are crocheted the red one with a chunky but soft sparkly chenille yarn and the small cream one with a vintage 4 ply nylon. Both of these yarns are from my considerable stash.

Chunky red lace and baby diamond hat.

Sunday instead of working on the sock for the father I knitted up a fun children's hat with a crochet cherry on top. This yarn came from a recent bag of donated yarns and there is more where this came from to make a couple more hats for charity.

Basic hat with cherry on top.

Not like I don't have my own supply of random yarns that I could use for these little hats.

There will be more hats before the month is out and I may even make a dent in the stash of odd bits?

I did manage to sew the sleeve in the little jumper I found on Friday, now to find suitable buttons to finish it completely.

Now it's back to the sock, I'm almost done with the first one. I was concerned about the quantity of yarn that one big Father sock is taking and a friend just happened to have some in the same colourway that she is willing to share so emergency averted.

Hope your week is good for some craft time.
