I am blown away by how many preemie hats you guys knit over one weekend, the grand total turned out to be 86 hats! Kate made this cool slide show of all your photos:
You impressed the folks at The Preemie Project too, they sent me this message, “I was just looking through all of the posts. How cool! We really appreciate it!”.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to knit 1, or 6, or 11, or 13 hats for a good cause this weekend. Yep, I said 13. Ruthmci and Knit4Many each knit 13 hats before 9am yesterday. We had a tie. We thought about coming up with a tie breaker, like a Battle Royale for knitters, but in the end we’ve just decided to give prizes to both of them.
They will each get a copy of Knitting in the Sun, a needle set, and 11 balls of cotton yarn (enough to knit the Cinnamon Bay Beach Blanket from the book!). Congratulations ladies! Keep an eye out for a personal message in your inbox asking you what yarn, colors, and needle set you want.
We were so impressed by the generosity of everyone here in the Knitting Community that we’ve decided to start a year round charity knitting KAL where you can chat with other charity knitters, learn about groups who are looking for donations, and get ideas for new projects. <
