Hat Not Hate
A few weeks ago Alexandra Tavel, from Two of Wands, posted about the Anti Bully campaign - Hat not Hate.
"In this craftivist movement, makers are encouraged to create blue hats to wear proudly on World Bullying Prevention Day, October 1st, 2018 and share with the hashtag #HatNotHate to help raise awareness. Lion Brand is partnering with STOMP Out Bullying, the leading national anti-bullying and cyberbullying organization for kids and teens in the US and will be donating 2% of the proceeds of blue yarns during the campaign to the cause."
I was drawn to her Peace hat design, only problem....I don't knit. Now I can knit a straight piece but anything else, it isn't happening.
So I took the Graph Beanie Pattern, by Playin' Hooky and myself, and gave it a go.
I am very happy with how it turned out and Cohen is now wanting one for himself. I used Lion Brand's Touch of Alpaca in Navy for the base of the hat, Wool-ease in Fisherman, Heartland in Black Canyon and Vanna's Choice in Taupe.
For the next one I plan to use a lighter blue so everything will pop a little more.
I am hoping to have a blue hat made for Cohen by October and help him understand the importance of being a friend to everyone.
If you knit or crochet consider joining this movement and help Stomp Out Bullying.

My husband is my valentine, although he has some competition from a gentleman wearing a size 2 diaper.
I am also a facebook fan. I do not own a twitter account.
My valentine is of course, my husband. We have been married for 6 years and I am constantly in awe of how perfect he actually is for me and how much I didn’t even know that when we got married. He is a wonderful father, husband, and man of God.
