Lenten Promises

I saw this call for hats early in Lent and made a promise to myself to knit one. So finally this week, I settled in (having realized that it was Holy Week and time was running short) to knit one.

I used up yarn from Nicholas's Weasley Sweater, yarn that would have sat in my stash otherwise. There is something satisfying about using up those type of skeins. And this pattern for a Seaman's Cap makes a nice warm hat that pulls down over the ears. There is something so satisfying about a simple charity hat.

Now on to Easter.

I've always loved that hat. What a great idea to knit it in the pretty pinkish color and for charity too!

Beautiful hat! Thanks for taking our project on as part of your Lenten discipline.
