Handmade Gifts, Hat

A bunch of helix hats and craft sale prep

So after finishing up my Christmas gifts and donation hats I decided to knit up a few more hats some for gifts and some for my Craft Sale pile. In fact since I last posted I have knit a total of 9 hats and 12 dishcloths! I’ve also been crocheting on two different blankets. I’d say that craft sale prep is in high gear!

I knit these two Stash Busting Helix Hats for my baby gift pile

I knit these two Stash Busting Helix Hats for my nieces that are staying with us.

I knit these two Stash Busting Helix Hats to drop off at an old friends house when I’m back home next time

and last but not least I knit these two Stash Busting Helix Hats for my craft sale pile
