they'll go to patients at a (somewhat) local cancer hospital - or cancer center - or whatever it's called. The yarn came from my mom's church. They were having what they called "Spring into Service." I went with my ten-year-old daughter. There were many worthy projects including; making gifts for patients at the VA hospital, jewelry kits for teens in a home, blankets for the senior center, care packages for service men and women overseas ... and more. Mikay and I worked on hats for cancer patients. At the end of the day (or rather, 4 hours), there was much leftover donated yarn. I brought home some green and melon-colored cotton. Several skeins (though I can't really remember the exact number right now and the are alllll the way in the other room). I thought they would make good summer hats because the yarn is lightweight and breathes well. Being cotton though, there isn't much give so I used the boyfriend hat pattern as best as my brain could remember without having to go to the trouble of looking it up again (which, interestingly, I had to look up in order to link it here). Love, love, love a k3 p2 ribbing! I figure I'll just keep knitting them until I run out of yarn.
This afternoon I finished hat #3 while watching Bones season two episodes on DVD.
