Summers and Cotton

Cotton Hats

It has been a busy summer without much knitting going on! I look forward to the coming fall weather and getting back to some serious knitting! 😊

But I did make time for a little charity knitting. I like to make a lot of chemo hats for a charity our Knitting Club supports. I have gobs (and I mean gobs) of acrylic yarn in my stash with very little cotton, so I usually make them in acrylic. But, recently I did a swap with a friend from Knit Club. She needed an accessory I had, that I was not using, and I needed some cotton yarn. 😊 Since summer is a good time for cotton, I got busy with my new yarn. It is a nice, soft cotton but very thin – a 16/2. It takes 4 strands together to make a good-sized yarn for the standard gauge. She even graciously wound a couple balls for me, combining some lovely colors together. And she shared her pattern! Lovely friend, indeed! 😊 Since they are a cotton yarn, they are made a little over-sized, then washed and dried to come out the perfect size. May they bless someone going through a rough time in their life!
