Heftones, Torch and Twang, More Hats for S. O. S.

First, this evening if you are in the Lansing area, Lynn and Brian aka The Fabulous Heftones will be on the terrific radio show Torch and Twang. It's on WDBM, the Michigan State University station (and winner of many awards) They are arriving at around 9 p.m., but I'm not certain when they will be on exactly, probably soon after that. For folks outside the area, the station dos have a Live Stream available, but it doesn't seem to be working at the moment. When it DOES start working, it's worth tuning in each Tuesday evening from 8 to midnight.

For picture content, here are a few more hats made for S.O.S. this month. I haven't really counted how many hats I've done (I donate them pretty soon after they are finished, about twice a month) maybe about ten so far.
The yarn I use is mostly donated to me from Lynn. She is very generous indeed.
The pattern is the TEXTURED BANDS HAT from craf*te*ra*ti.

If anyone has natural fiber bits and bobs of yarn that you don't think you will be using, I would be grateful to have them to use for the S. O. S. hats. I'll be making striped ear flapped hats in the next batch, that look a bit more 'manly' :-} If interested, please contact me at ottergal@comcast.net

Those hats are so gorgeous I want to eat them! They remind me of scoops of sorbet, or snow cones. The people receiving these are going to cry at getting something so beautiful! I love that pattern! If I lived in a place with colder weather I would commission one... alas!

Thank you so much for the plug when we couldn't plug ourselves. TOO MUCH GOING ON this week. Crazy busy but that's better than no work.

My unused yarns love going to you. They are loved by you and then the recipient. What a great way for a yarn that has been silent too long, to be enlivened again!
