My family has lots of little girls in it. This year I learned to knit using circle looms. I decided to make some knitted gifts. First I made knitted hats in two sizes based on the ages of the girls.
Here is a close up of one of the hats. I should say a big thank you to hubby W for making the flowers for me.
The older girls are getting matching knitted scarves in the same pink yarn. The younger girls are getting leggings made from knee high socks. I used this tutorial. It was really quite easy. I think they turned out cute.
I used two and a third skeins of yarn (less than $10) to make six hats and two scarves. The knee high socks were $2 a pair. I would have paid at least $10 each to buy similar hats. Making these items was definitely worth my time and helped stretch my budget.
