Hats for Kiddos:
There are LOTS of hats that they show off. There are roughly at 120 hats and our bag is FULL!!

We are hosting a hat KAL for local children ages 0-3 who have special needs. Hats must but knit in yarns that can be washed in a washing machine (acrylic or superwash). Knit any pattern you want and use whatever colors you like! Neutrals are great but we understand the need to knit super girly or super boy hats! Hats must be to us by October 31st. Prizes can be found in the Hats for Kiddos thread in the Ravelry group. Each hat gives you one entry into the contest. Every one is eligible to win one prize.

We want to give a big thank you to all who have knit hats, who are planning to knit hats, who have posted information about our KAL and those who have donated prizes. If you have questions, you can ask them on the Ravelry group and we will get to you as soon as we can! If you would like to make a donation, please email us at: caffeinatedknitting(at)gmail(dot)com.
