I needed some light relief from the two blankets I am working on at the moment. So I have just knitted these two children's hats for Operation Orphan which is an organisation that distributes warm clothing to children in need around the world.
The yarn is a really good quality wool that was donated by Nuns at a convent that was closing down. I had bottle green, yellow, and a muddy mottled colour and I had fun combining them to make these super warm hats.
The pattern is called "Ellie's easiest ever hat" and can be found in the patterns section of the Loving Hands website. The site is free to join and there are many patterns available to the members. It is well worth looking at this site as there are lots of ideas for charity knitting, crocheting and sewing as well as some very friendly chat forums.
