#17 Christmas Charity

charity hats charity hats Hello everyone! It’s later than usual, but where I am it is still Tuesday. Today has been an exhausting day; I had 2 finals and had to pack up my stuff to go home for Christmas. All is done and over now, so I have time to write this post. Last year the knitting club at my university paired up with a local Vancouver charity – so we made them a couple of hats and mittens to add some spark to someone in need’s Christmas. I love giving people knitted things, but it feels almost better when you know that they truly appreciate and that it brings a smile to their face (and keeps them warm). Due to finals and everything else, I was only able to contribute 5 hats, but I quite like them. 3 of them are simple crochet hats with earflaps and a nice border. The other two were knitted on double-pointed needles and should fit a toddler. These were stash-eaters and kept me busy during my breaks in between studying – a healthy way to distract myself from the stress of university exam season.

Back to Christmas knitting 🙂   NO MORE FINALS!!
