Hats For Haiti Contest

Okay, I decided to make it a contest...the Hats For Haiti Contest. Read about my inspiration in my previous post and here are the details:

If you want to participate, leave me a comment with your contact info. I'll give you my snail mail address so you can mail me your hat(s). OR go ahead and pm me on Ravelry - my id is emhknits.

It's been brought to my attention that I ommitted some info: Hats can be any size - I've made preemie ones and larger children's hats (I think the kids need them most). You can use whatever yarn you wish - I've used wool, washable wool, cotton, and acrylic. Also, hats can be crocheted if that is your strength.

For each hat you contribute to the contest, you will receive once chance in a drawing for a copy of the book Hattitude by Cathy Carron and a $25 gift certificate to either Knit Picks or Webs (your pick).

Comments/commitment to contribute must be left by March 15th and hats must be received by March 25th. Then I can ship them off to my friend Julie who promises that she will take pictures when they are delivered.

Here's what I've knit so far...

Great idea! I have several hats that I can send and hopefully I can knit a few more.

I'm taking a class called LifeKeys that is helping me figure out my gifts, life skills, etc. One of the stories in the book was about a woman who saw a need to collect clothing for people and jumped in to fill the need. You remind me of this story! Way to go!

I can send a few. Do you need any for adults?

I think you can email me at my comment address -- if not, I'll do Ravelry.

I've already sent my hats out. Is that ok? Oh, and I crochet rather than knit, is that ok?
Good idea to have that contest!
