Hats, hats, and more hats

June 18th, 2018 at 07:05 pm

Last week our knitting group got together for our bimonthly meeting time. Our goal is to make 1000 hats for 2018. We will choose high poverty schools in which to gift them. We have a couple of ladies making scarves. I can crochet, but one of the other ladies wanted to know how to knit a scarf on a loom, so I looked up the YouTube instructions and taught myself and then taught the ladies.

Anyway our hat total as of last Thursday was 533 hats! Not bad for a group that averages about 8-9 people.

I did score some yarn the other day at a thrift store. It was new and packaged, but they wanted as much as I could have purchased it at a fabric store on discount. I said something to one of the ladies and she said, well, if that is the case, let's just cut the price in half! No complaints from me!

    I'm with a group that knits hats for village children in Rajasthan. Yours are lovely.

    Thanks for all the kind compliments. Our ladies do good work both on the looming of the hats and the fact they are doing it as a way to help our kids in poverty.
