The Giving Tree!

One of my knitting friends told us that her church was sponsoring a giving tree of hats and mittens for children. She asked us if we would like to donate anything. I had some extra pink yarn so I made this hat. I don't have permission to post the child's face so I blurred her out.




I think my friend collected a couple hats one night to bring to her church.

I wish I knew weeks ahead of time. I would have made several more. This one is like the white hat I made for my grandson.

Happy Holidays.

take care,
Dawn

That is so cute! I bet you could have whipped up a bunch of hats for them if you had known. I still am in awe of the knitting you do.

That is so sweet of you. I'm amazed that anyone can 'whip' out one of these so fast. Knitting just looks hard to me!

Have a great day,
Diane

Dawn, you are a good soul. And, a knitter of beautiful things.

Dawn, You are a knitting wonder. I love the color. My nephew called last night and asked me if I had any yarn. Nope, not a drop. No knitting here. I wish there was.

Have a wonderful day.

Christmas hugs...Jeanne

Morning, Dawn! How nice of you to do this! You're a fast knitter, too! I was freaking out trying to figure what the hat was sitting on! It looked like apple slices and then I read what you'd done! lol Thanks for the explanation! I would have had nightmares about this! :)

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What a sweet thing to do for a church that's not even yours! I could not figure out what that hat was perched on--I thought it looked like fingers! See, I look before I read.

You are so sweet and generous, Dawn! Lucky the gift of your hat. This a great hat, btw...do you have a link to a pattern by any chance? That bright pink color is scrumptious! I hope next year to do more sewing and knitting for charity. Every little bit helps someone. :o) Happy Days, my friend ((HUGS))

That was a great hat you did. So pretty. Our church does this kind of thing too. I have not made anything for it though. I could do a crochet one. Maybe the next time the project comes around. I was confused by the strange fingers too. :-)

Oh my, that is so, so, so pretty!

My boys' school does a hat and mitten tree each year. Annie and I are hoping to sew up some fleece hats, but time is getting away from me...and I'm afraid we're going to have to go buy some instead.

Dawn! That is a fab hat! I wish I could create like that. My hands just don't work that way though.
I love it and I know if you had known (as you said) you and your generous heart would have knitted up as many as your wonderful hands could have handled...and then some!

That hat is beautiful, and your act of kindness was beautiful, too Dawn. They should have put the word out in September and given people a chance to make a few more, but that was great for a last minute request!

Hi Dawn, Great hat! You are one talented knitter, and how nice to share your talents!

Neat post below, too! Never seen Santa make such a GRAND entrance! :) hugs, Rhonda
