I heard about this from Cara’s blog, but if you want to get in on it too, go over to Kate’s and check it out. It had been a long time since I knit for charity. Actually, I’ve never knit for charity, I’ve only crocheted for charity, and it used to be the only thing I really did. I used to crochet hats and scarves to sell for our Relay for Life team. I decided it was time to do something good for the soul.
I made both of those last night. (Sorry for the blurry pic, the light just wouldn’t work with me today.) Since I’m a childhood cancer survivor myself, this is a particularly important cause to me. The left hat is Lion Brand Homespun and the right one is Bernat Eye Lash that my dear friend Roma gave me. I remember a time when Homespun was the Bee’s Knees of yarn for me. How times have changed…. It is incredibly soft, and I really enjoyed knitting these up. Hopefully I get another done tonight.
I’m also donating a hand dyed skein to the prizes. Kate is compiling knitted goodies to hand out to the hat knitters. The hats take a little over an hour and are well worth it. If you live in Eugene, I’d even be willing to ship them for you. So go check it out.
