Whew! I've just finished wrapping up a fundraiser I've done at my school. I called it "share the warmth" and I got 13 of my fellow medical students to knit along with me (I held workshops). Then we raffled off the hats (30 of them in the end!). Proceeds will go to help families in need afford heat in their homes this winter. It's been a blast to do and I've been churning out hats for 2 months now. Here are individual pictures of the hats that I made.

Those are great! I'm so impressed that you and your friends were able to knit so many hats during the holidays and what was probably the time leading up to finals. Smiley
