Yesterday while hunting for the neon green ribbon (which I found, btw), I picked up some yarn. The colors don't show well in the above picture, but the hats are orange and blue!! War Eagle!!! My husband and I are Auburn University grads. I thought I'd make a few Auburn hats for the Alabama hospitals. I'll send these to Mom for their next shipment. It's Bernat Softee Chunky and I hope it's soft enough for preemies. It was the only yarn I could find in the right colors.
I also picked up some Red Heart in deep purple and a bright multicolor. The red is some leftovers from I have no idea when. :-) I'm going to use these for some loomed hats for the Dulaan Project. I keep hearing about this and want to send a few hats.
Bev, as in Bev's Country Cottage fame, is having an October hat challenge. I'm going to participate and needed to get ready. I have a feeling it's going to be a busy October.
Also, I keep forgetting to ask advice. I've volunteered to make a memory quilt for Hannah's preschool. I'll let the kids put their handprints on a square and make it into a quilt for the silent auction fundraiser. Only problem....I've never made a quilt? Do you have a good beginner quilting book to recommend?
