BENEFITING: INFLAMMATORY BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION
I'm combining two passions: knitting and research. Hats Off started when I was knitting a funky slouchy style hat last year. Friends who saw the hat asked me to knit hats for them. Legalities do not allow a hat in exchange for a donation (that is buying & selling hats), but I do run a promotion here now and then. At that time, those who donate win a chance to get a hat. Watch this space for a promotion in February.
The hats are hand knitted (by me!) in a very soft, fine gauge microfiber yarn -- Serenity Garden from Premier Yarns. Hats are knitted in the round so there is no seam to irritate a sensitive scalp. Due to the very fine yarn, lots and lots of tiny stitches are needed. Each hat takes about 10 hours to create.
