Pile of charity knitting

So here’s the second pile of charity knitting I did this October/November. I am sending it today to the foundation. I am pretty happy how most of them turned out :))

The scarf is knitted in Bulky weight (may be even chunky?) on 10 mm needles and I did it very quickly. I got the brown/white yarn from the charity foundation, but it wasn’t enough for a whole scarf, so I bought some blue yarn to complete it.

knitted socks

These socks are made from acrylic, but are actually very soft. I bought the Craftsy course for toe-up socks andΒ  it was pretty easy to make them. I finished the course for a day πŸ™‚ I especially loved the afterthought heel technique.

The mittens are from my original pattern, lol. I didn’t follow any pattern, but noted down how I came up with them, so I’ll post it in a few days. I guess there are other beginners who want to make mittens :)) I made them in aran weight on 6 mm needles. That’s size S/M lady’s. I made them for my own hands and I have pretty small hands and feet for someone 176 cm tall πŸ˜€ I made 2 pairs of them.

Now that hat is made using a pattern the charity gave us. I may say it is a bit weirdly shaped? Probably didn’t get the gauge right? Don’t know. But it actually fits my husband, so I guess it is alright. :)) 100% wool, size 5 circular needles and as far as I remember, 109 stitches for the cast on. I have also made 3 other hats for the charity, but gave them earlier and didn’t think of taking pictures.

I really hope a few homeless or sheltered people would feel warm this winter with what we knit for them <3

Edit: Here is the pattern for the mittens :))
