Charity Knitting KAL

We knit 86 caps for The Preemie Project in a single weekend as part of our KIP 2009 speed knitting contest. Now this KAL is for knitters who want to keep the good karma flowing and knit for charity all year long.

Recommended yarns for charity knitting...

If you need super soft yarn for cure caps or preemie hats, try Comfy, Simply Cotton, or Shine.

We also have a wide variety of machine washable yarns here.

Magic loop would work great for mittens, too. And any size of hat pattern, really.

What are you wanting to make with the magic loop method, Virginia? It's commonly used for socks. Have you checked out the sock knitalong? It's also a good choice for baby hats made in the round (since they are too small for a 16" circular needle). I like to make baby hats for charity, but I tend to use the two circulars method--just because that's how I learned to do socks, so I find it easiest.

I just found this place and would like suggetions for simple quick patterns that can be made using the "magic loop" method. I just got the hang of that and it is working well for me and would like to make something nice for others less fortunate.

Take your time, we will wait patiently for it.

yes, I tried to take a pic with my phone and get it on this web site but I guess I need more time to figure it all out.

Joanne, you might want to post your socks in the new Sock KAL.

Ok, finished my socks and did a little spinning. Now back to hats.
Comment by cherylbwaters on July 7, 2009 at 10:22am
Joanne, I think 50 hats per year is a very laudable goal. There is nothing wrong with taking off a little time to spin and knit something else.

I now have 16 hats for my project. I usually give hats on my birthday which is in November. I try to have 50 hats per year. A little behind right now but I'll be taking some time off from hats to make a pair of socks from yarn that I spun. Maybe I'll make another hat sometime between the two socks.

Tammy, the one that was for the speed knitting contest is here. There are lots of organizations out there that accept preemie hats. You might even check your local hospitals if you want a Canadian charity to donate to, go here. Let me know if those don't help you.
