These are just a few of the hats I'm donating to Save the Children's Knit One Save One program. I currently have 30 done and am continuing to work on more. I'm getting close to running out of scraps though! Darn it. It's a little tight, so when I run out of yarn I may be done for the year. I'm trying to run down some yarn donations to continue making them. If you would like to donate yarn or know someone who will donate please have them email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .

So I got a panicked phone call from our daughter the other week. The place she ordered the top for the one girl in her color guard called to say that since it was a special order it would not be delivered for 6 weeks. ugh They wait this long to get back to her on that?! Of course that meant mom had to come to the rescue.
The top needed to go along with the one I made for Allen. (see Poet's top) So I came up with this one. The red portion is made of the same red used in Allen's top. It is also cut from the pattern piece for the heart portion in the closer flags. I also used lace around the bottom of the top like that lace used on the opener flags. The red is sewn along the top and into the side seam, but the rounded side of it is loose for movement on the field.
