100 Baby Hats!
Ellen's contribution to Stitches From The Heart
Yesterday was the big Knitting Throwdown at RPA here in my office complex. We knit and/or crocheted 100 baby hats and 8 pairs of booties! Wow! This is an amazing accomplishment for less than 20 crafters. We had exactly one month to create hats and booties for donation to Stitches From The Heart. First Place: A $30 gift certificate to the SFTH Yarn Shop; Second Place: A SFTH tote bag; Third Place: A SFTH keychain. 2 points were given for each finished object (or pair of booties). Each crafter could also collect from 1-5 points for total creativity and quality. The judges were employees of RPA.
Considering I don't work at RPA and am an outsider, I was happy to participate and win Second Place. I donated 23 hats and received top marks in creativity and quality. The winner for the day was Joycelyn with close to (or over) 30 hats and a few pairs of booties. The organizer of the event, Judy came in third place. Everyone really put forth an effort into making their hats and booties highly stylish and fashionable. Stitches From The Heart will be ecstatic to receive this bounty.
Oh yeah.....it's MY BLOG, so my photo is highlighted with MY HATS!
Have a great weekend!
