I found a pattern for a padded hanger which uses Aran wool. I have a large ball of cream Aran yarn what seems to go on for ever and ever without getting any smaller, leftover from a cardi I made myself a while back.
I knitted it in next to no time but when it came to putting the wadding on the hanger it got cast aside in favour of other projects and believe me there are a few of those around the house! I think there was about 14 at last count although that wasn't checking out too many bags, boxes or cupboards so the true figure is most likely at least double that....
There were 2 more wooden hangers in the pack and the ball of wool looks like it could have a couple more in it so I think there will be a couple more of these to go in my present cupboard.
Off to finish another project ;)
