300 Hat Project...

Recently my friend, Julie, mentioned something about helping out with The 300 Hat Project! I decided that I could knit a few hats for the project too...

While at my local yarn shop HodgepodgeYarns, I mentioned to Sue (the owner) that I needed to get some worsted weight wool yarn to make a couple of hats for this project. She asked if I could use some hats to send them...and I said yes. She mentioned she had a couple that had been at the shop without selling for a while and she was looking for a charity to give them to. She walked back with a bag full of hats...

So, these beauties are on their way to keep someone warm!!! 16 of them! Thanks a bunch, Sue!

Oh my gosh!!! This project happens to be MY hand project and a friend sent me the link to your post this afternoon. Thank you so much! Sincerely, I have had a miserable day and you and Sue have turned it around! Thank you so very much - both of you - for your kindness. I can't wait to see the hats in person.

If you are interested, here's my blog...http://okwhatnext.blogspot.com/ It has all the info in the side pair about the project - including a picture of some of the kids. And please email me (or Colleen) for an address when you are ready to mail them.

Thank you again - SO MUCH!! :)
