Our first Hats in 2010

crocheted hats"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" . Thought of this today when my favorite mail carrier trudge through cold temperatures to deliver my package from Sandie. It was 13 today, damp, snow on the ground. Cold folks and that's an understatement. I didn't know until I looked up the quote today that it is actually not the creed/motto of the Post Office. I always thought it was. Learn new things every day.

Back to the business at hand, many thanks Sandie for these 3 super soft hats crocheted from more of that fun Moda Dea Tweedle Dee Yarn. These are sized nicely for those folks under the bridge, and given the blend of the yarn (80% acrylic, 16% wool and 4% other fibers) will be nice and warm. Thank you bunches!! How many hats can you get from a skein? I note 155 yards in the skein, nice size.

  1. May this ministry be richly blessed in 2010.

  2. Great looking hats. Nice to see things get such a good start in the new year.

  3. I don't crochet or knit; but really like your project. How nice so many of you with talent can do something with it to help others.


  4. I really like how the yarn 'stripes'. The Sensation yarns do the same thing. Off to a great start!

  5. That Moda Dea yarn is so soft. I had quite a lot of it and I think most of it came to you, Sandy. It did tend to twist, but the results were so nice. Really pretty patterns, if I do say so myself.

  6. I did end up with lots of this from you and enjoyed seeing them all.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
