Gifts in the Mail

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.


  1. Congrats on your surprises!! I've recently been seeing stitch markers, and every time I see nice ones, they look like something I could use with jewelry! lol They are neat, though! I'm glad your good deeds brought you a little something nice in return. :)

  2. I'm really glad you won! I know you'll put the yarn to good use and the markers, too.

  3. Nancy I am glad you won, you do such great work and you are always thinking of others first. Blessings to you, Deb.

  4. SO HAPPY you like your prize yarn. Icelandic is perfect for our weather right now. Cute cute stitch markers . I love the Einstien quote
