My First Ravelympics Projects

I cast on this hat on Friday night, during the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. This hat is for a charity. So, the event I joined with it is the Charity Curling event. :) You do know that all this is for fun right? The charity that the hat will be going to is the local V-A Hospital, for the wounded soldiers.

On Sunday afternoon, Valentine's Day, I finished the hat during the Daytona 500. Yes, we digressed. No Olympics that afternoon, we love the NASCAR racing in our home and that was what we watched.

I cast on for this headband on Saturday afternoon. I wanted to give The UPS Store guy a headband for Valentine's Day. :) You see, he broke his earmuffs. I thought, the man needs something, so the headband was the answer.

The headband is made from my handspun yarn and is a wool/alpaca blend yarn. Hopefully it will be really warm. I finished it Saturday night, just in time. The man says it is really warm and we have had some pretty cold mornings lately. It was 23 F this morning and windy.
