Finally ! here is the finished hat that my seven year old son Luke has finished for the SAVE THE CHILDREN CAMPAIGN.
He did a brilliant job although the decreasing was a bit hit and miss . But looks fine when gathered and sewn up .
He did it all in purl stitch , which looks like a loose garter stitch .
How proud am I

And also a pic of my two latest which will also be going to the save the children campaign.

Wow Rita, you really do knit like the wind How long does it actually take you to knit one of those cute little hats?

Luke's hat looks great. He did a fantastic job. You must be very proud of him.

I can only dream of finishing anything that fast!

I've got to figure out how to move faster; I checked last night and it takes me 3 1/2 hours to just do a knit every row 6" x 9" rectangle. It's for HAP and I really want to be able to contribute more, which is why I stopped trying to do pattern rectangles and am just knitting the whole piece. I knit continental style; could never get the hang of the other way.

Love the hats...how do you add the flowers? Do you just "stitch" them on?

And, Luke...I am really impressed! I used a loom for my first hat. Who are the recipients of the Save the Children Campaign hats?

Hi and thanks

The children who receive these hats are newborns. You can get more details here .
http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/en/5072.htm

The campaign runs till the the 21st October .

The flowers are just embroidered on . You just make it up as you go along .

I think that everyone knits at their own pace that they are comfortable with . I cannot knit continental and although i tried i much prefer my own way which is greek knitting or if you look up on Youtube you may find a knit video under portuguese knitting

Yay Luke!!!! What a fab job you have done!! Rita you must be so pleased.

I love the hats you have made. The ruffled greeny one is just gorgeous, I love the brim and the eyelet stitches. So pretty. You are doing so well with your embroidery it really does cheer the plain turn over hats up very nicely.

I do have another one done and will get my arse in gear and post a picture.


Don't worry sgtpam I am like you and can knit at a normal pace, our Rita is something else though, honestly I have seen her in action and no wonder she always has something to post. She just knits soooo fast. You can't watch her for too long otherwise you'd get a headache!
