I'd like to know the answer to those questions too.

The point of sharing what we're making is just to sort of "cheerlead" for each other. Have fun & chat about it before, during and after if you like -- you might inspire some of us to get back to it!

The deadline is probably the last possible date something could be mailed to arrive at a needy families doorstep before Christmas.

Gonna jump in. I always have a couple hats in the works just because they work well as purse projects. I'll commit to a soaker, panta, tube socks and the like as well.

I have 1 hat completed.

I have piles of yarn from my mom's stash and my own...

Can I still join? I do really cute hats!!

Is crochet okay as well?
post #108 of 150
Crochet?! Ewwww!




Of course it's okay! I love how pretty crochet is -- and how many wonderful & pretty embellishments you can do. Someday I'll have to learn...

Can't wait to see your work!

I have yarn in a box from fremontmama but I have only knit a couple of dishcloths the whole summer. Life has taken some busy turns for me. If things quiet down before Christmas I'll knit up some items iwth the yarn. If not, I'll pass it along to someone else for the HH KCA.

It is also a good way for a very beginning knitter or someone who wants to try out a bunch of different stitch patterns to participate. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Just reading back through the thread and came across this...

Dishcloths??? Washcloths??? count me in for a few of those too. I already have a few made and a stash of cotton looking for for something to become!!

I just finished a purple, acrylic scarf. It's 60 inches. I suppose an adult could wear it, but I think it's a bit short for my taste. It looks great on my kids though! It's a simple, ripple stitch scarf. Sorry, no hat to match - it was thrift store yarn, and there was only enough for the scarf - I'm not talented enough to make anything elaborate yet!

ETA: It's a wide, chunky scarf.

I finished a white, acrylic scarf today. It is long enough for a teen or adult. It is a lacy type pattern with a shell stitch.

1 wool SCARF - Adult sized - Pale Lavender

5 Washcloth and Soap Scrubber sets - Cotton

Blue

Chartreuse (sp?) (also includes a back scrubber)

Teal (washcloth only)

Turquoise

Variegated blue/green/white

just wanted to ask.... are the holiday helpers only doing knitted/crocheted stuff or can it also be sewn?

I do all 3, and have been trying to cull some of my fabric. I would love to use some of the excess beautiful fabrics I have to help out a family in need
post #116 of 150
PS - what can I make with cotton yarn besides washcloths/dishcloths?

I'd like to make some diapering items, but i'm not sure if that's good in cotton? i see so much beautiful wool being used....
post #117 of 150
you could do some baby clothes, like a cardigan. yeah, cotton isn't the best for diapering stuff, too absorbant. i dunno about the sewing stuff, maybe talk to someone who is organizing this year?
post #118 of 150
thanks! i've been working on knitting up a hat with some of the cotton - i have drawers full with no idea what to do with it, so hopefully i can be of some help
post #119 of 150
YAY! i got my first item finished for the holiday helpers i have a super-adorable hat for a baby (newborn up to about 1 year). I was able to fit it on my 22-month-old's head, but it was SNUG.

Its REALLY REALLY CUTE - made from a rainbowy peaches & cream 100% cotton (screams girl to me though), and is knitted in 3 panels whipstitched together, with tassles at the top. SUPER CUTE.
