Stash-busting #8 - Hats and granny squares.



Litt mer garn er strikket opp på to luer. Selve luene har vært ferdig en liten stund, men de har ligget og ventet på å få sydd på dusker, noe som tok tid å få gjort. 
Men her er de altså; en brun str 2 år og en grå med striper str 8 år.
Luene er strikket med dobbel tråd på pinne nr 6.
Mønsteret fant jeg her.


A little more yarn is knitted up into two more hats. They have been finished for a little while, but have been waiting for the pompoms to be sewed on. That took me some time to get around to do.
But here they are; a brown hat size 2 years, and a grey one with stripes size 8 years.
The hats were knitted with two strands of yarn on needles no. 6.
The pattern was found here.





Ole Brumm er luemodell for den minste lua. Til den andre hadde jeg ingen modell, så formen kommer ikke så godt frem på bildene.


Winnie the Pooh is wearing the smaller hat. I had no one to wear the grey one, so the shape does not come out so well in the photos.


Jeg hadde en oppmerksom tilskuer da jeg tok bildene :) Tror det var Ole Brumm han var interessert i å bli bedre kjent med...

Garnforbruket var 75 gram på den brune lua og 113 gram på den grå.


I had a very interested "audience" while taking the photos :) I think it was Winnie the Pooh that caught his attention...

The amount of yarn spent on the brown hat was 75 grams, and 113 grams on the grey one.




Etter å ha strikket fem luer var jeg egentlig litt lei, så jeg har brukt resten av det brune og grå superwash garnet (pluss litt restegarn) på tre heklede bestemorruter til LILY prosjektet. Dette prosjektet leste jeg om på Lindas blogg for litt siden og har hatt det i bakhodet. 
Heklerutene er på 20x20 cm, og tilsammen veier de 99 gram.

287 gram garn er dermed "busted", og nå er alt det dystre brune/grå/mørkeblå superwash ullgarnet brukt opp!!


After knitting five hats in a row I was getting a bit tired of it, so I decided to use up the rest of the brown and grey superwash wool (plus some bits and ends) on three granny squares for the LILY project. I read about this project on Linda's blog a little while ago, and have had it in mind.
The granny squares are 20x20 cm, and weigh 99 grams alltogether.

All in all that's another 287 grams of yarn destashed, and now all that gloomy brown/grey/dark blue superwash wool is used up!!

Du får ju krympt lagret i massevis på fina ting. Ditt bestemorsprosjekt ser spännande ut, skal det bli en pläd?

Mia, heklelappene er til et veldedighetsprosjekt (link i bloggposten) som jeg har lest om og sett andre stash-bustere har heklet til :) En britisk dame i Tyrkia samler hekle- og strikkelapper og setter de sammen til tepper som deles ut til syriske flyktninger i leirer i Tyrkia.
