Today's mail contained two surprise packages from Irisheyes and Scottish Lamb blogs.
Each blog was collecting hats for the homeless in their area, and I sent the hats I made in November and December out of scrap wool. I did not expect to win any of the prizes they were offering, but what a surprise I had today.
The Gray Icelandic wool is from Kathy at Irisheyes and the stitch markers are from Jean at Scottish Lamb. Jean collected 227 hats: you may recognize my olive green earflap hat in her photo of all the hats. Irisheyes posted a photo of some of the garter-brim hats I sent them, too. They are pictured in the third photo. I like how she displayed the hats she collected.
Thank you, Wool Winder for telling me about the hat drives. It was fun to use my scrap yarn for two good causes and to receive two wonderful surprises in return.
