Second Annual Hat KAL/CAL

If you're in the Ravelry group or you get my email newsletter, you've already heard about this - it's time for the Second Annual Hat KAL/CAL!

Last year, I collected hats for Halos of Hope and donated them at Stitches Midwest.
This year, I'll be donating to a specific cancer center - Cancer Treatment Center of America in Zion, Illinois. This is the center where my dad was treated, and I would really like to do a little something to help them out. Everyone there was so wonderful to my dad and my family. You can read more about my family's experience here

Now through August 15th, I'll be collecting hats (the center also welcomes fingerless mitts and convertible mittens), so that I can donate them at the end of August. There will be prizes involved, including a prize for the person who sends me the most hats! You can knit or crochet any hat you want and I have a thread on Ravelry where you can link to your favorite hat patterns.

My goal is to get 150 hats to donate to the center. So, if you have a little extra time and want to make hats for a great cause, join us for another great hat KAL/CAL!
