The Friday afternoon knitting group I belong to has a yearly project. Each year we donate a hat and pair of mittens to each child who is beginning HeadStart. These are sweet little three-year-olds. In addition, the Friends of Headstart, as we are called, purchases two packages each of girls panties and boys briefs and a package of 10 pairs of socks for boys and 10 pair of socks for girls. This way in case of accidents the teacher has clean underwear to put on the child.
This year we will be delivering the hats and mittens tomorrow. Below is Sylvia, she is the head of this project, with all the things we have knit. There are 56 sets on the table. 54 of these sets will belong to some very happy little children.
Below is a close-up of a few of the hats and mittens. Aren't they adorable???
