SMWK Holiday Knitting Drive

This year, the Seattle Men Who Knit group came together to knit 13 hats to donate to the wonderful Holly House organization!

Holly House provides gifts for underprivileged children in the Seattle area, and will be serving up to 3000 kids this year. Holly House tries to provide each child with two toys, a stuffed animal, pajamas, a holiday stocking, undergarments and socks, a hand made hat or scarf, and a blanket and board game for each family in need.

Here are some pictures of the great items that were knit by these generous knitting-guys.

Some of our favorites this year were:

The "Skull and Crossbones":

The ever-popular Koolhaas:

And the super-squishy Brioche Cap:

Every kid deserves a warm hat or scarf in the cold-and-rainy Seattle winter.

I would like to extend my sincere thanks, along with the thanks and appreciation of Holly House and all of the kids whose Christmas will be just a little warmer thanks to the generosity of these knitters.
