Charity Knitting KAL


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.

Angela, a last minute question: are you finished at the end of the knitting, weaving in ends OR blocking? Or will that be explained in the directions?

I'm just adding a couple more threads to get things ready to go. The pattern still won't be announced until 4 our time. :)

We will be knitting in the round, so if you like circs, use those, if you prefer DPN's, that's okay too. You'll have to wait to check gauge.
I'm sorry I can't give you more specifics on the yardage yet. It's tricky giving you enough information to prepare without giving the whole thing away!

Sharon, I think those colors will be beautiful together. I hope it clears up this weekend for you. The following weekend would be a good one for rain. That should help "speed knit"!
