Sorting out completed projects

Finally found time this weekend to get a bunch of hats sorted out to ship out this week.  I like to take pictures of each hat I make before I send it on to a new home.

Hats headed for Newborns in Need

I got 10 hats to the post office yesterday headed for Springfield, Missouri. My sis will deliver them to the Newborns in Need shop.

Still alive and crocheting

It's been quite awhile since I last blogged. It has been a crazy fall between husband's broken leg, trying to keep up with everything and having the paying work be insane. I have still been working in the yarn though!

While Ronnie was in the hospital, I started and finished a baby blanket to give to my BFF for her fifth grandson. I just love Vanna's Baby yarn. Very soft and great non-baby colors. It was also a very fun pattern.

I am back to making chemo caps. I have one on the knitting needles and one on the hook. I can't do just one thing a time. :)

How many hats have I done so far?

I should have kept a better record but I here's my estimated count of donations so far:  90 hats sent before getting TK's Head Huggers organized.  That will be the starting total.

November, 2010 - 37 hats and 2 baby blankets to St. John's cancer clinic and Newborns in Need.

Somewhere in between these two - 9 hats (no pictures :(  )
October, 2011 21 pumpkin for St. John's Hospital, Newborns in need, St Judes and the oncology clinics.

March, 2012 - 12 hats to St. Jude's Mercy oncology clinic

July 2012 - 11 hats to St. Jude's Mercy oncology clinic

Olympics inspired chemo caps

I made 11 chemo caps to send down to St. Judes/Mercy oncology clinic.  I barely got them done so my sister could deliver before opening ceremonies. 

I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn in indigo, country red and white.  Each hat was done in crochet and mostly done in the double crochet stitch.  But each hat is different in the use of color.
