I've been busy and have not had enough time to knit! But, I have managed to get a couple of hats finished and another bag to felt. It's not felted yet, but it's finished......hopefully it will get into the washing machine today!
I have stopped into a Michael's and a Joann's lately and scored some great deals on wonderful yarn. Now, if only I have enough time to use it all!
This toddler hat was made using Kashmir Baby yarn, which is so soft AND machine washable! The pattern is a free one from Bernat, found here: http://www.bernat.com/search.php?key=softee+baby+knit+baby+hat&searchResults=&PATTERNS=Search
You do have to be a member to get the pattern, but membership is free!
Finished this one too, using Lion Brand Nature's Choice Organic Cotton. First time I have used that yarn and it was very soft and wonderfully smooth and cool feeling. It's a free pattern from Lion Brand, found here: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0451.html?noImages=0
Tons of hats and blankets have been pouring in. I have much to tag today and many more to ship out!
Last count for Delaware Head Huggers was 4,697 hats! Visit the website at www.delawareheadhuggers.org or friend us on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Delaware-Head-Huggers/250229674280.
Kozy Kovers has collected 461 blankets too! That website is www.kozykoversforkids.org and they are on Facebook too http://www.facebook.com/pages/Kozy-Kovers-for-Kids/253991638070.
Some good news! Kozy Kovers for Kids won the Bernat Yarn Charity Drawing for June and they are sending us $100 worth of Bernat yarn. Can't wait for the delivery! One group of ladies has made a ton of blankets for Kozy Kovers, so the yarn is going to go straight to them!
Well, I've got to get going and get some yarn on my needles.
