Star Hats

I've knit a whole lot of stuff since last I blogged.  I've even a completed some.  Here are the ones I've photographed.  These are hats for Camp Happy Times. (Good video.)  Camp Happy Times brings kids ages 5 to 21 years old together.  The kids all have, or have had, cancer.  One special memory is camp hats.  There is a new theme for the hats every summer.  This year's theme is Stars.  All the hats are made (sewn, knit, crocheted) by volunteers.  Each camper can choose 2 caps, one themed and one unthemed.  Here are the ones I'm sending along.  It's not too late.  They can accept hats up to July 15, 2013.
