Knit (some more) Unto Others

The hats and square I posted about yesterday were part of my knit unto others efforts.

Yesterday, multiple hats and one square. Today, multiple squares and one hat.

All from my bucket o' scraps. The hat will go to Lucy's mitten tree collection (scroll halfway down). The squares are for MDK Kay's American Blanket collection for Oliver.

There are 9 squares there. I had some help from Jane (niece, aged 9) and Mim (MIL, age unspecified!). This is us on Thanksgiving. Jane's mom, a decided muggle, took the photo.

So far, my tally is 3 hats and 10 squares. I'd like to add a pair of mittens too.

FYI, the paper is written. Still needs a heavy editing, but I've got another night for that!

ETA: The Mafia keeps telling me that I knit a lot for charity, but I don't feel like I do. Then I looked at my Ravelry projects page -- of my 88 projects, 18 are for me and 30 went to charity (the rest are gifts -- 40 of them!). However, I got most of the sweaters, and charities got most of the afghan squares and hats, so it's hardly fair to compare. But, I guess this explains why I've had the urge to make something for myself recently!

  • I think it's wonderful that you've done so much charity knitting. And I didn't know Lucy had a blog so thanks for the linky dink!

  • Do you always knit in giant scarves or was it just for the benefit of the photo? Super cute, either way!

  • I'm so glad the paper is done! :-) What a relief. You must be dancing on air... unless of course you're too exhausted to do so. ;-)
