Work-in-Progress Wednesday


After knitting the first pink Miranda Hat it seems I just couldn't stop! Yesterday I knit up a blue one and today I've started a purple one. They're just so quick and easy, and so cute when they're done.

There's a KAL going on in this Ravelry group organized by Project Stash, the designer of this darling little hat. The plan is to knit a bunch of these hats from stash yarn over the summer and donate them to charity. The pattern is available in a child's size and an adult size, so chances are there's something in your stash that would work.

Now my big question is where to donate these hats? At the moment I'm thinking about Halos Of Hope - they collect hats for chemo patients who need them. But if I keep going at this pace I'll have enough to send a few to more than one place. Any suggestions? What's your charity of choice?

Today again I'm tagging along with Tami's Amis on Work-in-Progress Wednesday. Why not spend some time checking the links, and ooohing and aaaahing over all the good work being done?!

I love this pattern, it's so cute, and the idea of donating them to a cancer charity is perfect.

I am not doing this KAL, I am doing her Wonder Stash blanket and I love it.

That's a love idea, and you seem to be knitting your way through the colours of rainbow :-)

The hats are lovely!

That pattern is really cute! Does your local hospital have a cancer center? That where my crochet club donates our chemo caps.

You are on such a roll! I like that purple.
I see you're using the shorter DPNs too? Brave cookie you are!

Lovely pattern, excellent idea. I'm glad they are so fun to kniw, I'll have to give it a try when I start stash busting again!

I'm loving all these wonderful Miranda hats popping up---it's such a sweet and nicely-textured pattern. Yours look great.

Wow - you're just motoring through them. This reminds me - I have to make a hat for my best friend for her birthday - which was yesterday... oops!

I am not much if a knitter but would love to try this hat. Can you use circular knitting needles for this? Great job!
