I've been keeping busy during the few free hours a day I have. Like maybe 17 or 18 of them.
One of the things that is not ever far from my mind is Project Warm Hearts and the kids in Xico/Ursalo Galvin in Veracruz.
Here's just a quick sample of what I have been up to.
My standard receipe hat. Nothing fancy. Just keep your head and ears warm.
Standard receipe with a few embellishments knitted on. I found these really cute smiley face buttons while in Merida recently. I hope some little girl is going to be smiling too!
I still have lots of "fun fur" yarn left. It is too flimsy on its' own for a hat. By knitting one regular row of yarn and 2 of the fun fur, I came up with this:
It looks to me like a clown wig! But it is a furry inside as out and is going to be very warm.
Taking the fun fur inspiration a bit further, I made a short row stripe hat. I think it turned out really cool.
There you have it. Just trying to do my part to help the kids stay warm this coming winter.
