Project Sweet Caroline


Okay, you guys know I don’t push things very often.

However, I am taking part in an ongoing project to knit hats for preemies. The project is called Project Sweet Caroline, and is being run by Melissa, aka Meliabella on Ravelry.

If, like most of us, you have an accumulation of small bits of superwash sock yarn lying around (wool/nylon blend or just 100% superwash is great, but please no cashmere, silk, etc. as some babies have a sensitivity) and a little time to spare, please consider joining this ongoing project.

There is a link to the basic hat pattern on the page, and it’s a really great way to use up small amounts of yarn. The hats are really easy, and I found it took less than an hour to knit one.

Information on where the hats will go is also on the page, and Meliabella says that she can be messaged through Ravelry so that people can let her know how many hats they are contributing.

Thanks for considering contributing to this project. Hopefully, I will soon be seeing a bunch of new preemie hats on folks’ Ravelry pages!

Got a small project finished today


I had signed up for a knit-a-long (KAL) for a hat called Belgian Waffles.

Conveniently, I had some handspun a friend made that I got at an Interfilk Auction at a convention called Contata last July.

I’m very pleased with the way the hat came out, how easy it was to knit, how well-written the pattern was, and I look forward to making more of them in other yarns and colors.
