Craft to give back night--HATS!

We enjoyed another successful craft to give back night this week. Here is a picture of the some of the finished hats so far:

Aren't they super cute?! We did not get off to an auspicious start, as I didn't anticipate the difficulty of showing so many people at one time how to use a loom. However, due to the determination of all involved, there are now many women in this neck of the woods who have caught the loom knitting bug! Several even took home extra yarn to make a few more or finish up their hat from Monday night. We also had some fearless embellishers finishing off some hats that Mike's mom, Dede, knitted for the cause. All in all, it was a fun night full of laughter, a bit of frustration and lots of fun chatting. I am so proud of these ladies and the 30+ super cute and warm hats we are going to donate to Waunakee Neighborhood Connection's free store! I can't wait to get the finished ones back (can't wait to see how cute they look) so that I can drop them off next week!
October and November's craft to give back are going to be making necklaces for the children to pick out as Christmas gifts for their moms. Come learn how to make super cool pendants and attach them to chain! October 27th is the next date for craft to give back. Let me know if you would like to reserve a spot. I will need to know how many women so that I can have enough supplies ready.
