Pompom Bear Hat and Bracelets for Japan



I had some malabrigo from a friendly yarn swap a few years back. Katherine, I think you sent me the malabrigo that I knitted up into the baby hat. Pompom Bear hat is from BABY BEANIES Book by Amanda Keeys. Super simple knit, but it hurt my wrists......

Karen and Carol, here in town, are making lovely beaded bracelets and donating the proceeds to Japan's relief fund. They are asking for a 15 dollar donation. I asked for all blue beads, but they have many others if you wish. Email Karen at her blog: Knittraps.blogspot.com if you wish to order one. I asked for the cross bead in the center of mine, but there are other options.

Here's a little Friday link love for you!

The Dansom Shawl is delightful to knit! I wear mine in the office all the time. Love the bracelet!

The Malabrigo looks so pretty as a baby hat. Any baby would be so cute in it.

The bracelets are just lovely. I hope your freind does well with the donations that she will receive. What a great idea!
