I have yet another pair of socks for womens shelter. Very simple, the same Briggs and Little Tuffy yarn, 80% wool, 20% nylon.

Did I show you these hats? (I started a new group and a website for this little charity project so it seems like I did post them all over the Internet. ETA: no, I didn't. Checked all my threads). They are also for charity for the Period of Purple Crying program at our local childrens hospital.

Truly beautiful donations. I love the colors and the obvious care that went into both projects.

Thanks! The idea is to scale it up a bit by involving different groups of knitters but it's too early to say if it's going to work.

With your permission, I will post a link to the website when I upload more projects and patterns there. I actually started writing things down and it's exhausting :)

Olha, isn't it against the rules at your house to stand on the furniture??? :rofl: :rofl: They are great looking socks and will be loved by some lucky lady. The stocking caps are lovely too! I am a purple lover.

Why, yes. That's why these feet are actually lying peacefully on the library couch :) I had to flip the photo and confuse you a bit. Otherwise I would have to explain what I was doing upside down :)

I'm envious of the socks. They look so nicely knit... you can hardly even see the gusset. They look wonderful!
