But before I can do that, I had to finish a charity knitting quota I volunteered to finish. I read an article about Willow's Place, an organization that helps feed the homeless in my local city of Kent, Washington and contacted one of the sponsors to ask how, as a knitter, could I help. I was asked to see if my Wednesday night knit group would be willing to knit 100 hats and scarves by October 1st. My group has gladly accepted the challenge and are all knitting away.
Here are my finished contributions:
|Earflap Hat from Lion Brand, 2x2 Ribbed Hat from Fiber Trends,|
and Skull Hat for Service Members from Knitting on the Net
My designs: Single crochet scarf and 2x2 ribbed scarf
|Reverie Beret from Knitty and Garter stitch scarf|
P2, K1, YO, K1, P2, K1, YO,K1,P2, SM, K to end.
Row 17: P2, K3, P2, K3, P2, (P1, K1) 7 times,

Knitting and enjoying the sunny weather was how I spent my holiday weekend. Love to hear from all of you how you spent this glorious weekend, drop in and leave me a comment, tell me what's on your needles!
