Funny knit hat, blue hat and zinnias

I bought this cute red hat for a young friend of mine, and next to it is a blue hat and scarf for me. They were knit and prayed over by ladies at my church, and all the money raised goes to help local people. Each hat and scarf has a tag attached which says "Hand made with love and prayers in every stitch by the Knit Wits" of our church. Any items not sold are given to local charities including one for children with cancer. All the yarn is donated.
This photo is a two fer since it shows the zinnias I bought at the Farmers Market, organic and locally grown. I picked out twelve stems for $5 and got a nice bouquet.
Guess who the blue hat and scarf are for? Lucky little me.

What a lovely idea your church has. Knitters around the world share their talents and prayers and those in need are benefited. Love that!

I also really like the shade of blue of the scarf and hat.

Have a great remainder of the week, Terra.

Oh Terra,
What a wonderful thing that the knitters are doing in your church. I really like that red hat, it's so cute. My sister knits and crochets, and I've always thought it was such a talent.

Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.

Those are so cute, and even more special because of how they are made and prayed over.

When I saw the Zennias, I had to check again as to where you live. California might be one of only a few states that still has flowers growing in their gardens. You are also one of the few places who still have Farmer's Markets that are still selling thei produce and things.

Hi Terra - that's a great idea of the Church .. and I bet the gift will be much loved - and you need it now with the snow. Your woollen goodies too - I can't wear wool and it is very irritating, which it is to wear! Cheers Hilary

My mom's crochet group has made hats for kids on a reservation in the past. Not sure if they are doing that again this year or not.

I love this idea. I might just try implementing this with some of our crafters and knitters. What a message of hope and warmth this brings. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas and hope that new hat and scarf keep you nice and warm!
