That is what on my needles at this point.
Since Thursday night I have put aside all my other projects and knitting "Sandy" hats. One of my Internet will give them out directly to people in need in N.J.
I gave myself a deadline - this, coming Friday.
So far
1 hat is done,
1 hat has been ripped out,
1 hat is almost finished
and 1 more in progress.
The pattern for these hats is in progress too.

I'm a hat knitter, too! Since October 1st, I've finished 13 and have 3 more on the needles. I have a ridiculous stash of yarn for kids hats, and hope to have over 100 made by June 1st next year. Although I do give some away, I sell them at the local farmer's market. So...since I can't count on time to make many more during the market months, I am knitting like crazy this winter.

Every summer I pick something to focus on for the charity tree at our church. This past summer it was hats, and I think I managed 8 over the time between July and the end of September when I began Christmas gifts. A friend liked one of the hats I'd made so much (a chunky cabled toque) that she's getting one for Christmas.

I almost did it! Due to the War, that broke out in Israel I could not knit for 2 days. I did manage to knit 10 hats within 9 days.
And they went out in the mail today.
Here is a link to my blog, Chicken Stitches with the photos and a post about them.
In the end these hats truly saved my sanity as we sat and waited for more and more fairly grim war news. I really needed to knit, but could not make myself pick up my needles. Then I thought about the people, whose lives were disrupted by the hurricane and started knitting again. From then on I knit every second I had, if only just a couple of stitches at the time. This way I could concentrate on my knitting and not think if we are going to invaded from the North too.
I finished my 10 hats the day after the ceasefire was declared.

Oh Henya it must have been awful for you all over there, and you're over there thinking of us and Sandy? Bless you.
