Post 23 In which I Get A Surprise

I have been making hats. I have been moved to tears by recent events, watching families struggling to do the best they can to build a life away from war and fear. So I have donated to Save the Children, unfortunately I can’t make today’s march, but I have been knitting like a demon (sorry for the sideways pic I’m writing this on my phone).

Hats for Knit For Peace

Yesterday I posted five hats off to Knit For Peace who send them out to refugees in Kurdistan who are fleeing the wars in Syria and Iraq. I have four more waiting to be made up.
In the process of  making them I also created a proto hat which was more like cardboard. I’d doubled up an already thick wool through my uncomplaining Zippy 90. It was so thick it just would not have worked as a hat, but it has made an excellent work bag now called the Surprise Flower Bag.

I have listed it on my etsy shop but in all honesty it is so pretty I’d be very sorry to see it go.

Knitting in an effort to avoid housework.
