2015 Charity Stash Bust Update-Mid/Late November

Five pounds of yarn BUSTED!

I recently found out about another organization that collects hats for kids going through chemo therapy.  The organization is the Jessie Rees Foundation and they send out Joy Jars with a beanie in each.  All hats I make in what is left of 2015 will be sent to them.

Charity chemo hat crocheted by Darleen Hopkins #CbyDHThe first completed hat is a beanie crocheted in 100% cotton.  I didn’t follow a pattern.  It’s just a basic beanie.  I found the eyes in my cotton stash.  I remember I made them awhile ago but didn’t use them as they were the wrong color or something like that.  But they are perfect for this owl creature hat!

The hat weighs 2.75 ounces.  That puts the final weight of yarn crocheted for charity in 2015 (to date) at over 5 pounds!

Five pounds BUSTED!
