A few months ago I picked up some Mission Falls wool on clearance at my LYS. I wound up with 8 balls, and I made a few hats for the general election campaign with Knitters for Obama. We're trying to hit up swing states and focus on homeless veteran's charities.
For the most part, I used Ellen's Knit Hat pattern, although I sampled the London Beanie and The Boy Hat. The other patterns were great, but I liked the first one best for simplicity purposes. These hats are my purse projects, and I needed something that I can just throw in a bag and go.
Patterns: Ellen's Knit Hat, London Beanie, The Boy Hat
Needles: Size 7 circs & dpns
Time: A few days a piece
Cost: $24 total, or about $3.50 each
I'm moving back to Tennessee next week, and I cannot wait. And when I say "move" - I mean, living/working there for the rest of the summer. It might only be 7 weeks, but it's going to be awesome. I can't wait to spend the 4th of July grilling out with my family.
