Country Knitting Of Maine News & Views 2015 Hat Contest

Country Knitting Of Maine News & Views
2015 Hat Contest - Win Prizes - Hats are Donated to the Needy. 

To Anyone That Knits or Crochets Hats. Either Hand Knitting or Machine knitting. Join our fun Contest and win prizes.  Let's "Keep Maine Warm".

Our Hat Contest is continuing for 2015. Enter your hats to win some wonderful prizes. The hats are then donated to the needy in my area to help "Keep Maine Warm".

All sizes and colors can be sent. They will be greatly appreciated.

This contests judging will be in mid November, 2015 so your hats need to be received by me on or before November 1st.

This is what I would like to do. They don't have to be your own original pattern. Make them colorful, make them plain, make them however you desire. Any style, shape or color. I do recommend acrylic yarn so they can be washed and dried easily. Enter as many hats as you would like. They can be hand knit, machine knit, crocheted, whatever method you like. Let's make as many children and needy adults as warm as possible next winter. Last year's hats went to some elementary schools, senior citizens, homeless shelters, food kitchens, local town office for Christmas Baskets and other needy citizens. You should have seen the happy faces on the children, especially when they found out they could keep them. They were worn with pride. You can send as many as you would like.

Send them to:

Country Knitting OF Maine
351 White Schoolhouse Rd
Madison, ME 04950-3202

We have a challenge sponsored by Kathryn Doubrley.
From Kathryn Doubrley: My 2015 challenge to knitters is to knit 100 hats along with me to contribute to the “Keep Maine Warm” campaign. As my Grandma use to say, “good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise,” I will be knitting and sending 100, also. So if you get bored, aggravated and lonely while you work, remember you aren’t really alone. Several of us around the world are knitting maniacally too. Those who do send 100 hats to Linda for the charity will receive one of my books for free plus gratitude and respect from many sources.
