It's time to make baby hats! Once again, Warm Up America and Save The Children are collecting newborn and preemie sized hats for third world countries. This time the program is called "Caps for Good". It is very easy to make a little hat for a baby, and it's a great project for new knitters and crocheters. I've sent in about a dozen hats in the past few years, and knowing that my craftiness is out there in the world, helping someone that I'll never meet, is a very cool feeling.
The Caps for Good program will conclude on February 28, 2011. You can visit GoodGoes.org/caps and WarmUpAmerica.org for patterns and information on how to send in your hat. They even have little cards you can print out and fill in.
Go buy some yarn and make a few hats!
