Knitting and crochet update

I did a lot of knitting and crochet during my break.

This blanket was not really my idea of fun. I still don't like the colors. But it is nice and warm and a great stashbuster.



When that was finished I moved on to something fun. I tried knittig a hat on two needles.

And when that worked out allright I decided to try soulemama's pattern.

And then I made it again. I like to knit that pattern, not too complicated, but not boring either..

I made a matching neck warmer. I panicked first because I forgot to make button holes (it was going to be a scarf and then I changed my mind) but um... holes? Yes, we have those. Duh!

The last scarf was a stashbuster too. The light yarn I already used when I knit all those scarves for Sinterklaas, the dark blue was in my stash for years. It's funny stuff, but the result is really soft.
