Hat Knit-a-Long/Crochet-a-Long
The crochet/knit-a-long is for hats. It can be any size hat … from preemie to adult. I will close the thread at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on September 29. On September 30 I will put everyone’s names in a hat (multiple entries for multiple knit or crochet hats) and draw a winner.  The winner gets a prize of any giftable $5.00 (or less) pattern on Ravelry.  If you are not on ravelry, you can send the photos to me at sockbunnyknitandfit dot gmail dot com and I will post them on your behalf.
