Auburnchick...
My experience has been that you want to use the softest yarn possible, and making a hat without a seam is even more ideal. Knitting in the round lends itself nicely to this kind of project...just a thought. Gail

We need to know if she has any fiber allergies.

Hi all!

Sorry for the delay in responding to the posts. I've had a very hectic day at work.

I will contact Mason and find out about any allergies.

Meanwhile, should we give ourselves a month? Is that too long? I know that many of us have children who are finishing up the last few weeks of school, so the activity level has probably picked up a bit.

Thanks for the links to the patterns! Y'all rock!

I'll check back as soon as I hear from Mason.

Hi all!

I just heard back from Mason, and he's very appreciative that we are doing this for his mom.

He said that she is not allergic to any fiber. I think that what we should do is send the hats to me, and I'll send them to her in one or two packages.

If you want to include any kind of card or note, please feel free to do so. I'll send whatever you include.

I'm still doing some research about patterns and yarns. I'll get back to you shortly.

Here's something I found on headhuggers.org:
  • Softer yarns (such as cotton) are more comfortable.
  • Lion Brand MICRO-SPUN yarn is a very soft yarn (and is 100% Acrylic and Machine Washable & Dryable).
  • The new fun fur yarns are fun, soft and lightweight
  • Thinner, seamless, non-lumpy caps are good for sleeping and increased comfort.
  • Hats made with thinner yarn would be better for summer weather use.
  • Cotton is great for summer hats and warmer climates as it is cooler than most other types of yarn.
  • Most of our hat patterns work well with thinner, cotton yarns as well as with worsted weight yarns.

Thanks for finding out the info. I'm going to make a trip for yarn later this week and will start by next week. Now if I can just figure out circular knitting, I'll be all set!
