Donating Hats for Homeless

loomed hatsSandie in warm Florda loves to knit (loom) hats and donate them for the cold in need homeless in Ohio, and I'm soooooooooo glad she does. Once again, she's made fabulous hats with such interesting color combinations. Thanks bunches Sandie. We've had another cold spell here, even though it's June we've hit record lows for this time of year so I know those living outdoors in the elements are still wearing hats and scarves at night.

5 more days for our June cotton cloth focus, then will swing into July which will focus on squares. Please check out the directions, working calendar, and frequently asked questions in the tabs across the top of the blog.

  3. Love the hats. I have to try this and then teach my kids so they can help me use up my yarn! Sorry you are dry in Florida. We are flooding here in ND.

  4. Thanks, guys. Yes, Yvonne -- teach the kiddoes to do this. It's really fun and quick. It's slightly simpler and faster if you use single yarn rather than double, but I think the nice squashy double is warmer. And Sandy wait until you see my next box -- it has THE most colorful hat I've done so far! Hugs all round -- Sandie in Fl where it's thundering

  8. Beautiful job, Sandie! THIS Sandie is just learning to loom. I bought one of those long thin ones yesterday. Do you use worsted yarn or chunky for the hats?

  9. Hi Smiling Sandie.... I use a round peg loom. I know (think!) you can do the hats on the straight peg loom too. I have the straight one, but haven't tried it yet! I use double strands of worsted, but if I have chunky a single strand will do. Sometimes a strand of worsted AND a strand of chunky. I just judge the "warmth factor." Nothing the wind can blow through. Have fun -- let's see your product soon! Sandie in slightly damp and humid FL

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?
