Helix hat for charity Hat drive.....
This post was brought to you by the letter A, for Al, who will be typing for me due to a arm injury!
Diane, the lurker, knitted some outstanding thrummed mittens for her daughter, but my photos of them don't do them any justice. WIll try to for better shots another time. She figured out how to thrum from an Interweave Pattern from a few years ago. She's so smart, she did it perfectly. She calls them cartoon mittens. I call them amazing. .
My helix hat might be a hit with a camo. kind of man or boy eh? I hope to finish it when my arm is better.
Are you reading the blogs out there lately? I predict The Mason Dixon tree will fall! How about you? Enter their contest~
Turtle and Bianca and I are fiercely trying to win some Alpaca yarn from the contest going on over at WiKnits link. You name the colorway and win some. Here's hoping one of us will win some! This contest is nearly keeping me up at night.
Camera issues resolved. Phew. Frugal me does not want to buy another right now.
Sweet Darcy posted about the charity hat drive on her blog. I think she gets an extra entry for that. :)
Another kind soulsent me 3 gorgeous hats for the drive that arrived yesterday. Her 93 YEAR OLD mother knit a hat for us! I tell you I nearly cry every time the hats arrive.
She thinks I should show some hats and give a hat count . I am working on a way to show the hats and give them all the glory they deserve. We have over 2 dozen hats to donate so far. Each one magnificent. People will feel very warm and proud indeed when they don these wonderknits.
hungry for comments and Christmas cookies, me!
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
