Knitting, CHABHA Vermont, and other various Caz doings.
Hi to my bloggie friends and Jordan (out there lurking are you Mister!)
Carol - I owe you a message or four I will write very soon.
About my knitting and photos...my husband won't give up his camera so I can take pics. Once he does, I will take a pic of my daughter's hat. I have rec'd numerous compliments on her hat from people in passing. Apparently I can knit and do Fair Isle and Nordic patterns properly.
I finished a green hat with white and green trees but the pattern was cut short so I am going to knit another green and white hat for my friend's little boy with the corrected pattern! (My oldest son nabbed that green hat!)
I will take snaps. I'm working on a blue and gold hat as well for my middle son who has a big head. The poor thing was so upset that I gave my oldest son and a daughter a hat to wear and he didn't have one. I'm going to make more. I have mitten patterns to do and also socks.
I am going to attempt to knit 52 hats (one hat a week for a year) and see if I can sell any of them at the craft fair for my kids school next winter. I'm going to give it a go and see what happens. If I don't sell any of them I'll give them to Coats For Kids charity to go with those coats that kids get!
I have a knit pattern for Duduza comfort dolls that I can make with my kids and then donate the dolls to CHABHA in Vermont. These dolls are taken to children in rural parts of Southern Africa for children who don't have toys. 215 dolls were brought to Rwanda a couple years ago and 1,000 children wanted one. I'm gonna get knitting and then drop off dolls to the Brattleboro Vermont chapter of CHABHA (Children Affected by HIV/AIDS organization).
If anyone else knits - let me know I will pass on the doll pattern and links of where to send the Duduza dolls.
Anyway, I'm back to knitting my middle son's hat. xoxoxoxo
