Slouchy Beanies & Yarns

 During my 'holiday', I managed to make a few slouchy beanies using Nona yarns(pic below) which I bought there. 
 And a mesh slouchy beanie. There's another blue one in the making..I made a hat for my mom but forgot to take a pic :p 
 While I was away, these yarns arrived from Scotland via Swap Workshop. They're gorgeous and so soft! I have no idea, yet what to make out of them. 
And these are the yarns I bought in Sabah. There's only one shop that I know of that sells them. The name is the same as the one in West Malaysia but from another company. And the texture is different. I liked them so much I bought around a total of RM60! I've got so much yarns now that I'm overwhelmed! Bought any new yarns lately? I'd love to hear about them!

Hi Aisyah,
Glad you had a great holiday!
Those beanies look great as always, have to say you are such a slouchy expert! He he he!!!
It's really fun reading your post today, me too, a yarn addicted, never feel enough although my yarn and thread have occupied my room! :)
Great day to you too!
Lovestitch, xo

Oooo, that yarn is beautiful, wonderful colours. I love the bright green and blue in the last photo on the left hand side, can't wait to see what you'll be making with them.

Yati pun suka benang Nona. Tak sama macam Minlon. Tapi ni dia punya label lain sikit ya. Soft colors, pandai kak Aisyah pilih. :)

Hi Melanie :) Yes, nona yarns can be made into hats/beanies beautifully! I never buy Minlon anymore. Good luck in your new venture!
