Thanks to all for knitting the hats. I asked that they be beautiful and each one really was. I had so much fun seeing all the hats arrive. You brought me to tears more than once. The last two arrived today and are the not pink hats. The pink one I was saving for the last contest post.

Oh my gosh I hope I didnt forget anyone. I had to be reminded today was Jan 5th, you know . Packages will be mailed out tomorrow. Happy happy prizes. No notes inside as my broken wing isn't allowing for legible writing !

I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

OK to redeem myself from my last post - here's our next charity knitting project:

I hope this article makes everyone smile. :-)

Leslie said...

Thank you again for organizing all of this. It's nice to know knitters can band together and really do something positive. Can't wait to get my prize, but I'd do it without the incentive!

I sent you a reply on your knitting blog. :) :)

Wool Winder said...

Thank you for the prize yarn! I never expected anything in return. I'm just glad to be able to help out.

Breien in Lansingerland said...

Congrats to all the winners. I mean in this case that I am surprised that so many beautiful hats arrived at your place, to warm the heads of people who need it.

Guess what... we're having deep freeze temperatures here as well :-)
My compliments to you Kathy for organizing this... I promise to send you a few more next time.

Pat K said...

So many hats! So many prizes! Thank you for the yarn heading my way, I'm just happy to have a hat I knit warm someone who needs it. Although the temperature here this morning is in the low 20s with windchill, proving that even in Southern AZ there's still some use for hats and scarves. Congratulations to everyone! And to Kathy for a great successful projectg!

Nancy said...

Thank you for the yarn. I will use it to bring warmth to another person's life.

Katherine said...

What a blessing this has been to all of us! I can just imagine these beautiful hats warming the hearts and heads of the recipients. Thanks Kathy for planning and supervising this great project!

How exciting! Thank you so much for doing this... it was the push I needed to start doing charity knitting (a resolution this year is to knit at least 52 hats to donate to local shelters). You had such a great turn out of knitters/crocheters!

Grace said...

Thank you so much for organising this. I'm sure the warm hats are much appreciated. I wish I could have have knitted more. This means I'll just have to be more organised for the next one.
Thanks again. Hope the arm is getting lots of rest.

Congrats winners!

Teresa in Virginia said...

Thank you Kathy for the beautiful Wooly Wonka Lace in Orange tones. The colors (orange, yellow, pink and just a hint of purple)remind me of a beautiful sunset. I will truly treasure this yarn.

Thank you also for the opportunity to be of service to my fellow humans. It was a pleasure to knit those hats and I truly enjoy (and need to do more) charity knitting.

If you decide to do a hat drive for the 2009-2010 winter season, count me in!
