The hat shelf is filling up!

More hats are rolling in for the clients of Conway Cradle Care!  Yesterday's mail brought two contributions, from Leah in New York and from Amy in New Jersey.  Check this out!


Leah sent these two colorful hats: one baby-sized, one a wonderfully cozy oversized adult version. My daughter likes to name my knits, and the one she's wearing -- her favorite of all the ones I had her wear in this modeling session -- she called "Colorful Sparks."


This is the adult-sized hat Amy sent (made of Malabrigo ... ahhhhh). My modeled shots of it were out of focus, unfortunately, and this color is really hard to photograph.


Amy's toddler-sized cabled hat is made of Blue Sky Alpaca cotton -- look at how those cables pop!

I am so overwhelmed by the hours of work put in by my teammates and their friends on this project. Leah and Amy, you rock! Not only are my students going to be inspired by these, but the local kids who receive these hats for themselves and their children are going to know how much they mean to their community, near and far.

  1. Amy's hats are gorgeous! And I love the name your daughter came up with for mine. I had a lot of fun knitting those!


How nice of you to leave a comment :)
