Hats (and mittens) off

I decided to have a bit of a rummage up in the loft last weekend and came across a box of crochet items that were originally made for sale. I haven’t had a stall at any event for a while, so these had slightly fallen off my radar and I decided to sort some out to donate to charity, adding them to the small collection of hats that I have made recently.

In the end, there were 13 hats and 5 pairs of fingerless mittens. These will be on their way to Knit for Peace very soon. In addition, I added three pairs of knitting needles to the box. Apparently KfP are always in need of needles suitable for double knitting wool – 3.75, 4 and 4.5 mm – so if you too have any of these sizes going spare, they’d be delighted to receive them.

  1. I do love a woolly hat, such a shame I have no opportunity to wear them… What a double win: you clear some space, and people who need them get cosy hats and mittens.

  4. Never a need for a hat here unless it is a sun hat but I am sure they will come in handy for those who do 🙂

  6. I picked up several pairs of knitting needles that were being given away but knitting just doesn’t do anything for me, so I’ll find out how to donate to KfP.
