E3 and I have a mutual friend, D in California, who knits and crochets. (Hi, D!)
She has made a beautiful collection of hats for the 310 Hats project. They aren't here on the east coast yet but they will arrive soon.
She has sent me some photos to tempt me. If these were food photos I'd be drooling. Instead, I have this "longing hand" sensation. I TOTALLY want to hold these hats!
Please share my "longing hand" feeling by viewing the photos she has sent!
The first picture of 20 amazing hats (some of these will appear again, closer up)
Hats made in the Knit-a-cap style
This one SHOUTS "SPRING!!!" (crochet)
Interesting ribs that go all the way to the top! (That's challenging.)
Crochet & knit - sky blues
Another truly pretty blue hat with ribs all the way to the top
Rib Cap in pinks and blues
Top Down Beanie (from Barbara Walker instructions)
"got diamonds and triangles?"
Like a field in spring's full bloom
Crocheted royal blue (GORGEOUS!)
CABLES! (I am physically allergic to knitting cables. Really. I don't have the brain power. Any one who knits cables is a Knitting Hero in my book.)
"Mistake stitch red cap" (Why do 'they' call this 'mistake stitch'? It's looks wonderful to me!)
More shapes in lovely royal blue
An interesting stitch in a dark happy blue (half way between royal blue and navy blue)
Pretty in Pink - crochet
Seed Stitch cuff cap in wool - Hot pink!
"Goosebumps hat" in Hot Pink!
Supple Ribs in color "Ocean"
Is this two faces of the same pretty blue hat? I don't know. (D, please tell!)
I joyfully anticipate their arrival. By then, I'm sure there will be more photos of lovely D-made hats to share with you all!
I am truly humbled by the outpouring of generosity from coast to coast! It brings tears to my eyes. Truly.
And to answer questions from the comments ---
Every time I try to total the hats, the number changes! :-) I need a calculator.
And no, E1 and I haven't figured out what happens when the total reaches 310!
