Two New Hats


Been grooving on the Charity Knitting initiative for The Sow's Ear. The hats and other knit goods are going to various charities including the good folks over in Cedar Rapids who were flooded out this spring. Makes me feel good to be doing something for other and the mindless repetition of going roundandroundandroundandround for kids' hats is about all I can handle right now! I found various skeins of acrylics in all different weights in my stash. Good way to use it all up. Off to start # 3-a purple fuzzy one!

The hats are cute! I love making them, for much of the same reasons you do... mindless, uses up bits of yarn...

Oh cute. Love the colors on both, and love the spiral effect on the bottom one.

I really love the pooling effect on the lower one! So sweet.

Wow, good for you! You're an inspiration; I'm going stash diving, yes I am. I can take a few diversionary minutes (days?) away from the Dr Who scarf for that.

Gorgeous hats and I'll try that chai tea. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

WOW -- Since your first charity hat endeavor, you've really picked up steam! Now you'd be competing for gold in the hat knitting olympics!
