Another Successful Knit-In!

This past Saturday was Kaps for Kendall’s 2nd Annual Knit-In to Knit Away FA. I had a great time knitting hats with the other 40 or so women who were there that day!

It was a fun day of knitting, random prize giveaways and learning more about Kaps for Kendall. Since they started in 2004, Kaps for Kandall has raised over $90,000 for the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, and they have donated over 3,000 hats to people in need!

Knitting, knitting, and more knitting!
Kennedy and Charlie check out the goodies.

Knitters brought in 360 hats to donate on Saturday! I want to thank Mrs. C, a friend’s mom, who crocheted several hats to donate. I’m not sure how many hats we actually knit on Saturday, but for every hat finished the knitter popped a balloon. There was a lot of popping throughout the day, and there weren’t any balloons left by the end of the day!

I donated this light blue hat when I arrived on Saturday, and knit the other 3 during the event. The pattern is fibre space Beanie Hat knit with Caron Simply Soft, held double.

I want to send a big THANK YOU out to everyone who donated to this wonderful cause!! We were able to raise over $5,200 for the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund! Hopefully we’ll be able to do even better next year :)

  1. Those hats are cute! I’m glad the event was so successful. Is that a tote made from jeans, under those kitty feet?
