Box for Knit for Peace

I've finally finished enough knitted and crocheted items to fill a box for Knit for Peace.  There are hats, mittens, scarves, cardigans and a baby blanket, which will all go to refugees in camps around Syria.

Some yarn was donated by an online friend in Leeds, and this has made 6 hats so far.  There is still some of her kind donation left for the next box.  I also collected a donation made to Loving Hands which had lots of aran and chunky yarn (much of it with a high wool content), so I will be continuing with making more winter woollies.

Using chunky and multiple yarns has had an impact on my stash busting too - in September I used 1.250kg of yarn, which is the highest monthly total yet.   But because of purchases and donations, I have stopped keeping a total of how much stash I have left - it is most definitely more than I started the year with!
