FYI, All…Today I received another 22 hats from a woman in New Bedford, Massachusetts, who is a patient of Dr. Wiggins. With yesterday’s 12, that brings the total to 200 hats! We will be adding the additional 34 to our four special boxes at Tuesday’s gathering. If anyone else wants to contibute, we have a fifth box available!

Also, Denise had an excellent idea: a special hat for Jade, who is Doreen and Mike’s 2-year old daughter! The hat will also serve as a momento for Doreen of The Wiggins Hat Project. Denise is knitting a white cotton rolled-brim hat, and Diane and I are knitting brightly colored rosebuds and green leaves to be sewn to the hat’s brim like a wreath. The pattern is from the Itty Bitty Hats book. Too cute!! The yarn was purchased at The Yarn Outlet where Sunni and Anne work. The flowers will be sewn Tuesday evening, and that should complete the gift. Oh, boy, Denise knows I work best under pressure!

Won't be seeing Dr. Wiggins for a couple of weeks, I think, so we will be accepting donations until then! Let's try for 250 hats!

Sorry! I've been out of town and not easily "connected" for a bit. I'm still out of town, but my sister has the hat I finished and is going to mail it tomorrow for me.

Sorry. I just didn't get anything posted in time. I've been very busy with other charity knitting projects.

If the deadline gets extended, please let me know and I will work something up this weekend and post next week.

Thanks!

Yes, the deadline is extended to June 14th. Our goal is 250, and we've received 216 so far! So, with your help and some contributions from others, I'm confident we will have a whopping 250!

So glad you got it ok.

Super easy and very quick pattern...I used the small, blue, Knifty Knitter, loom and just the basic knit stitch.

Since you extended the deadine, I have a blue/brown one just like it that I could mail Monday; and maybe a few more since I'm finally home and off for the weekend.
