The Other Two Hats

The gray one is Patron Classic wool and is crocheted. The striped one is acrylic yarn in pink and yellow and is knitted.
Today I found a purple hat I'm knitting as well and did a bit on that. It has to be transferred to smaller double pointed needles because this long circular needle isn't cooperating.

If you find you are fighting with your knitting see if you can change something. Sometimes its the needle size, sometimes you need a different kind of yarn, and sometimes you just need an afternoon nap.

Trio of Hats

Last night I finished 3 hats. Here are photos of the camo hat. I haven't taken photos of the other two as it was dark last night (doh). But I'll go do it today when I have time. The rain has stopped and the lighting is decent.

Two of the hats are knitted. The other one is crocheted (the gray one). I love the rolled brim of the camo hat and started another one straight away. I'm trying to get as many hats as I can finished for a craft event in 2 weeks, but I don't want to injure my hands in the process. So when they start hurting I lay everything aside for a few hours.

Chemo Caps Always Free

If you need one for you or a loved one, email me at Pigglewiggins (at) and let me know your favorite color. Also, do you prefer solids or stripes or anything goes. Make sure you tell me if it's for a child, teen, or adult so I get the size right. And I'll need a complete address to send it to.

And if any of you are in the Anaheim area I also accept donations of yarn and knitting and crocheting supplies, as long as they are from a smoke free environment. That way I can keep the caps coming, and you can get your closet cleaned out of all the yarn Aunt Martha left you. And if you could never figure out that new fangled knitting loom, I'll be happy to have those available too. That way I can put the local teens to work making hats as well.

My mother passed away from lung cancer so this is the least I can do in her memory.
