Hats for the Babies

My local yarn store (LYS), McNeedles, is offering a 15% off discount on yarn that is to be used to knit hats for preemies or into scarves for the troops. You know I love to knit me some hats and little hats go so quickly. I bought a skein of my favorite soft yarn, Berroco Comfort, and set out on my knitting quest.

I finished three hats out of the skein and wanted to make some more. I found some lovely variegated yarn at Hobby Lobby and knit a couple more out of that. The pattern I used, Roll Brimmed Hat for Preemies, was super simple and easy to remember. The hats were the perfect project to take with me to Orange Beach.

It is a great store and a wonderful way to get people to make something for others and to get them into the store as well.
