Lovely Loomed Hats

knitted loomed hatsSandie in Florida has done it again with her creative flare for looming lovely colorful, warm, and fun hats for our folks in need here in Ohio. I love how she makes her loomed hats double thickness so they're nice and warm, have good stretch and awesome colors in her designs.

I seem to be having some blog issues of late folks, so my apologize for this post not appearing until now. I typically write and schedule posts, and often have 2 weeks going in the que. Lately, I've been having trouble with scheduled posts not airing when they're suppose to. I don't know if I'm having issues or blogger is having issues. Or perhaps it's a combination of both. Soooo, I'll double my efforts to check the dates on the scheduler thingy and hope things improve.

Our good friend Sandie from Florida is having a much deserved vacation is Scotland! How awesome is that. I hope you're having a wonderful time, and look forward to some pictures on your return. Travel safe, and as always thank you for your wonderful donation and on going support of Ohio's Homeless.

**One more day of our August focus of Hats for Adult Men, then onto our September focus which is Scarves. Scarves for women, men, and older children. Younger children tend not to wear scarves. Sizes and colors can vary, please make them warm (without open and loose stitches). I generally make scarves at least 5 inches wide for women and 6.5 or more for men.**

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!


  1. Sandie - having loomed a few hats myself, I want to give you a big round of applause - 14 hats is a LOT of work! Your hats look so nice and warm too - the double thickness will be perfect for Ohio winters. What size loom do you use? Hope you are enjoying Scotland!

  2. Awesome hats! They look cozy!

  3. Hi, folks! I'm back in the good old USA...wonderful trip despite cancelled flights and bland food. SO GLAD I live in the 21st century -- those castles are only "romantic" from the outside and in movies! Flowerlady - I use the "Green ring". That's not the biggest one, just the almost biggest ring. It fits me or my husband so I figure it's the right size. Happy Labor Day!

  4. These are always good sized for teens I think, they fit me (small female head), but not my hubby (larger than average head). If someone wants to make adult male hats, believe the largest ring would be needed. Also, those living outside often wear two at a time in order to be a bit warmer, so a larger one on the outside is good. Men with lots of hair need a bit more room in a hat also.

  5. OH dear, Sandy! now you tell me... well, I'll scale up on my next batch. Maybe our heads are just smaller than usual??

  6. Not to worry Sandie, there are cold heads in need of the smaller hats too.

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.
