Our Guild donates items to charity each December, and I try to knit up a few items to add to the pile. Hats are always good since they're easy and somewhat mindless, and always needed. Especially for boys. It seems charities get a much higher percentage of girl items - not surprising - pink and pretty is always easier than dark and plain. SO I grabbed a bunch of grey, brown and charcoal Classic Merino and have been cranking out hats. Here's that latest, cast on and made while deciding on which of my existing projects I want to continue on. (I also needed a small compact and portable project to take to basketball games and swimming lessons, and I didn't have a sock I wanted to work on.)
It's not blocked yet, but I love the brown and grey together. This will join the other hats I've already knit, ready for our December meeting when the pile in the middle of the room gets increasing bigger as each knitter adds her donations! I'm hoping to get a few more done, with the remainders of the Classic Merino balls I have lying around.
And just because I think this post needs another picture, here's a shot of some fall colour - Thanksgiving weekend, taken during a long walk down our cottage road.
