Click For Babies Purple Hats

The crochet guild here in Wichita has been collecting purple baby hats for the “Click For Babies” campaign.  http://clickforbabies.org/  I learned about the campaign at their September meeting and I thought that I could whip up some hats.  I didn’t have a whole lot of purple yarn at home so I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased two skeins of “I Love This Yarn” purple and one skein of green because I wanted to try this really cute eggplant hat.

I didn’t quite realize how many hats I’d be able to get out of two skeins of purple yarn!  I ended up making a total of 18 hats!

The next charity project is one that my knitting guild is undertaking.  They’re collecting red scarves for Foster Care to Success (http://fc2success.org/what-we-do/programs/red-scarf-project/).  I don’t think that I’m going to make anywhere near 18 scarves though, hehe!  I’ll pick up one or two skeins of red yarn to make some scarves out of and see how many I end up with.

    I wish I could learn to knit. Maybe after we get settled into the new house, I can learn. Loved the pictures of Sam for homecoming. She has really grown into a beautiful young lady. If I was Steve, I would keep a shotgun close by for all of the young men.
