I've been surveying odds and ends of yarn. They are everywhere - buried on my desk, tumbling off the work table, spilling out of my bag. Bits of this and that. Remnants of completed projects.
I set a challenge for myself to use up some of these yarn leftovers. It so happens I need a new traveling project - something that doesn't require all the charts and elaborate pattern instructions I'm currently working on. A sock project would be the logical choice, but that doesn't work so well with a mishmash of yarn. Instead I'm going with a hat. The bonus to knitting a hat is that it's fairly quick. A little instant gratification now and then is a good thing.
I've narrowed the yarn down to these four. They are all Edna so I won't have to deal with varying weights and gauges. Deciding on colors is the next step. Mix and match, pick and choose. Now the real fun begins.
