Socks for sheep

Isn't it a bit odd that I made stuff for a project called Socks for Sheep and didn't make a single sock? All the socks I've made so far this year and not a single pair to send off to Jennifer? This package will be off in the mail tomorrow.

So here's 6 pr of mitts. Super soft wool. 4 hats
and 4 infant fruit hats.
I've got to say I don't think I'll get tired of making these little fruit hats. They are so cute!

Wow that is an impressive amount; I just finished a hat for Flopper using a merino/casmere/microfiber blend in a sort of teal. How big around are the baby hats? I have two neices and some angora that needs to be used up :)

Very nice! As of now, Socks for Sheep is definetly sock free. I just didn't want to do Scarves for Sheep because the Christmas Craft Booth does scarves, and shawls take too long so Shawls for Sheep was out. Right now it seems to be Catnip mice for Sheep, I've sold 10 of Kelly's Tiny Tunas and the fair hasn't started yet! Can't wait for your package!

Those hats are so cute. I am making a hat right now for my daughter, but I really need to get busy and make some for the giving tree at school.

Diane,
Sounds like the same band director. And I am glad I am not suffering alone with the red heart.

Wow, you have been busy! I can't believe I have two kids and have yet to make a fruit hat. They are so cute!

I have to say I am always in awe at how much you manage to complete! Beautiful as always!!

The box came yesterday, thank you so much! Everything is just adorable and I'm sure I'll have no trouble selling all of it, especially those darling fruit hats! Also, thank you for the Halloween candle holder, it's a great addition to all the decorations around here! Thanks for helping out!
