Kristy's Hat Quest

Thanks to ES posting abt this charity, I was able to send Kristy five more hats to add to her total. Here is the link again if you want to check out her ongoing totals.

Here are the hats that I sent her this past week.

They will fit kids 6-12 y/o, depending on the hat, and the bright red hat will fit one of the caretakers.

The majority of knitting right now is for the family, but I do have an afghan going that will either be for Warm Woolies or my local animal shelter. It depends on how big it is and when I get it finished. Here's what it looks like so far.

I'm doubling my worsted weight acrylics and its a perfect way to use up my white yarn. Once I finish the tan, I'm adding another white, then brown, then white, another tan and will finish off with the rest of the white. I'm hoping it will be big enough for a kid's blanket.

Hope everybody is having a great summer!

Wonderful knits Lynn! I love your idea of doubling the worsted weight acrylics for the afghan. I'll have to give that a try myself when I get to the stage where I'm making blankies :) Thanks for sharing!!
