I finished my second red scarf on Friday. The yarn is the same as the…
Charity Hats X 3
I responded to Jean’s call for hats by knitting 3 hats. This was a great way to try out some patterns I’ve been considering for Dale. The good news is that he loves all three. Or wait – is that the bad news?
Here’s the 3AM Cable Hat
And Norma’s Bulky 2X2 Ribbed Hat
And the Seaman’s Cap
I knit them all with some Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride I had in my stash. They took very little time and I think they turned out pretty well. They will be warm and that’s what really counts.
In conclusion – – –
Money spent? zero dollars
Time spent? a few hours
Great feeling achieved knowing I’m helping someone else? priceless

They look terrific!
I just finished the Seaman’s Cap for one of my sons. I liked it a lot and definitely will be making it again. I really like the 3AM Cable Hat you made too!
They look great and the recipients will be really glad they have hats! I love using up my stash like this, too.
Most excellent! I have a hat or two on my agenda for today…
I like the 3AM one. Doesn’t it feel good to knit for charity?
The hats look great. I am particularly drawn to the coziness of the Seaman’s cap. 🙂
Nice collection of hats! I have had the 3AM Cable Hat in my cue as well as the Seaman’s hat for a while.
Awesome! I’m adding the 3AM Cable Hat to my list now that I’ve seen yours.
It’s nice knowing our work will help keep someone warm, isn’t it?
I just want to the BAAArgain Room at CT Yarn & Wool – my LYS and picked out some great yarn to make Hubby a hat – Watchman’s Cap is the pattern but I like all three of yours as well. I’m secret knitting mine during lunch at work so he’ll be suprised on Christmas morn. Will kit some of these for charity after the holidays.
I like the cabley one the best!
Three happy people will have warm heads because of you.
Are you a member of the Cover Your Head Hatalong?
If you were? You’d have earned yourself a Hat Trick.
I’m all about the little incentives.
I LOVE your hats – and the benefits to others, you’re right, are priceless.
I have a Seamans’ Cap on the pointy sticks right now for my hubster. What a great simple pattern. Did the 3a.m. hat come into existence because you took a nap the other day and ended up staying up through the nigh as a consequence? 🙂
They are all beautiful but the cable hat is my favorite. Very nicely done!
All three are winners! Tell him to pick just one, and you will match yarn and color to husband.
Ooh, I especially like the cable hat…the stripe adds a nice kick!
Now surprise Dale with one knit for him for Christmas.
They look great! I have a hat I need to send her – it’s before I knew what I was doing (not that I do now) and all the knit stitches are twisted. But it’s warm!
Very festive pictures!
They are all lovely and will keep someone very warm. I need to do some charity knitting myself. I suppose the Xmas gifts don’t count. 😉
Hmmm… sounds like Dale might need to start picking up the needles himself! 😉
Three thumbs up! Oh wait, that’ll be hard to do.
Another reason why stash is a good thing 🙂 I really love that 3am cable hat – going to have to check that one out! but they are all lovely.
They turned out really nice. I have always liked that Seaman’s Cap – it is a nice looking hat.
Great hats – I especially like the 3AM Cables. Lamb’s Pride is nice yarn 🙂
I like the first one…and the third one made me giggle. But then, I live with a twelve-year old trapped in a 38 year old body. ;o)
Love them all! Thanks, Carole! I’ve had a ton of packages come in over the past two days but it’s been nuts here and I haven’t been able to open them yet. At this rate I’ll be making another trip to Dobbs Ferry before the end of the week! Fine with me!!
Well done. I’ve been meaning to cast on one of these for Jean. I’m going to search for suitable yarn tonight.
Knitting hats for Dale is faster than socks. I vote he gets more hats and fewer socks. ;^)
They all look great. That’s very generous and clever of you to combine charity knitting with research.
Wonderful X 3. And Lamb’s Pride is a big thumbs up! So warm and perfect for the needy.
What a great collection of hats! And the snow is uber-cool too!
All three hats look great, whoever receives any of them will be very happy and it sounds like you are feeling better. I like the snowflakes that are cascading down the screen across the beautiful red design. Reading your blog is a treat I look forward too after a long drive in Los Angeles traffic.
They’re all wonderful and look so warm! You are very generous to knit for others.
Cute hats. I like the new background as well.
