I've done lots of fabric stash busting to make charity quilts. Now, in the past few weeks I've taken that to a bit of a different level and made hats scarves and mittens for our church's ladies charity group who are collecting warm clothing for a local refugee services organization.

It was lots of fun.  To make it go a bit faster, I used double strand yarn so I could use bigger needles.  In fact, I also did a "triple strand" scarf that I guess I forgot to take a photo of.  It was 2 strands of the baby pink with one strand of the hot pink (the remaining yarn from the hat and scarf in the photo below).

Hope you are all staying nice and cozy as winter approaches.

Mary Lynn, these are wonderful and I know people will be thankful to have them. Makes me think I should start knitting up some leftover yarn and find a place to donate some caps too. Thanks for the idea.

Mary Lynn, these are wonderful! What patterns did you use? What a great idea for stash-busting.
