One of my favourite charities is Operation Christmas Child. I think I have as much fun filling the shoe boxes as the children do opening them.
This year I got a bit carried away making hats as I have knitted 16 beanie hats and 3 crochet ones.
Here are a few of the knitted hats. I used a lot of Patons Fab as I love to watch the way the multicolour patterns emerge. It's great value too as House of Fraser are selling it for just £1.60 per 100g. One ball will make three hats.
I also like to crochet this cute girl's hat. It takes me about an hour whilst watching TV. It's done in a circle so has no seams to sew.
I designed a small bag to go with one of the hats. It's a great way to use the novelty buttons I have had for years. These buttons are two wrapped sweets from a Halloween set.
I also knitted some cute purses that are just big enough to hid a small box of crayons. I will share a photo later as blogger will not upload it at the moment.
Hope you are having a nice day. I have to take the cat to the vet for a check up later and all I can say is she doesn't travel well!?!?! Wish me luck.
