First up is my Cozy! I really only had about 5 inches left to finish it on Sunday and had no doubt I would get it done. I still need to block it, but it sure is pretty big as is. Please pardon my couch modeling it. I live alone and the camera timer has a way of not taking oh so great pictures in my dungeon apartment.

After finishing Cozy, I had enough leftover that I knew I wanted to do something with it, even if it wasn't enough to complete the project. Back in March, I had purchased a hank of Malabrigo Worsted that I knew I wanted to use for a hat. What was perfect is that in this hank the color pink matched the Cascade yarn.
Thus came about my Koolhaas Hat. I started the ribbing and first 5 rows of the pattern repeat in the Cascade yarn, then switched over to the Malabrigo. I also used the Cascade yarn over the last 3 rows of the very last pattern repeat and finished off with the Malabrigo.

With the hat done, I realized I had enough Malabrigo to make a little neck warmer. I keep wanting to call this a *Pidge* - On a blog I read, someone made something similiar and called it this. It has just stuck in my mind.
After browsing my lovely friend Ravelry, I came across the Tudora. It was perfect for this bit of yarn. The only thing I have to do to make it totally complete is purchase a button. I think I have a bit of time since my hat and neck warmer won't be worn for at least 4 months from now.

So what can I say?!?! I am thrilled to have Cozy done and it is also very satisfying knowing I completed 2 additional projects using up yarn from each project. What's even better is that they all can be worn together!
