Day 1 of 40 hats in 40 days

Today is the first day of Lent so it is also the first day of my 40 hats in 40 days challenge.
I crochetted two premie hats this morning while watching tv with the kids. Have you done any yet?

Good Karma Giveaway

I just thought I would let all of you know that Kris over at ReSweater is having another good karma giveaway.
I am going to make a few extra hats in honor of her giveaway. So if you want to enter the giveaway head on over and do something nice for someone or give to someone in need.
Oh and Lent starts next Wednesday so get you fabric and yarn ready.

40 Hats in 40 Days

So for the last few years I have knit/crochetted/sewn 40 Hats in 40 Days in honor of Lent. They are all premie and baby hats that I donate to local hospitals. I can not take credit for the idea. A mom over on came up with the idea in I believe 2006 and I have just continued to do it.
I usually use this pattern It takes me about 20 minutes using worsted weight yarn so it is nice and quick and I can easily do one a day.
Last year I did not make as many, but I did give birth during Lent so I figured I wouldn't. I made only 30 and started early.

So who is going to join me this year?
