Hat Time is Drawing Near

I know it's hot out there right now, but before too long, cooler weather will be upon us. It will be time to get back into the hat making mode once more. Last year, there were four of us who made over 50 hats for kids at a local residential facility for trouble teens. We called ourselves, Warm Hats for Cold Heads, or something like that.
I looked at the stash of hats we didn't give out, and there are only two. WT said he had either 7 or 9 made, so we need to gear up. Knifty Knitter products from ProvoCraft make this an easy pasttime. I just have to put the crochet hook down long enough to make some hats. I think this year I will try some simple skull caps, more like a watch cap, instead of the long ones I made last year.

As I See It...For A Friend

I have a friend to whom I am giving this prayer shawl. She's about 10 years older than me. She has a congenital heart problem, yet she is active, and quite a lovely lady. She and her husband both sing in our church choir, and work steadily in our church. They winter in Florida, where they are active in church music. My friend is has a beautiful voice, has recorded a CD, and has had many leading singing roles in our community theater productions.
I was talking to her the other day and felt she needed cheering. Her husband was having trouble with his eyes, she wasn't feeling top notch, and was frustrated by a volunteer job she had undertaken for the summer.
Jo, this one's for you. May it bring you hours of feeling the Touch of the Master's Hand.
