Ok, I need some help, and I was wondering if any of my fellow crafters would want to help. See, my school is helping the cancer patients by collecting hats to make their day better. We currently have over 300 hats but want more! I'm trying hard to knit some because they have a lot more love than some of the store bought caps. I was hoping if anyone has any unworn hats lying around or can knit some up that they could help. If anyone would want to participate please PM me.
P.S. Only unworn hats and if they need to be washed use water and soap if you know it wont hurt the sensitive skin of the cancer patients. Also please no smoke smelling hats. We are in need of womens, childrens and toddlers hats at the moment but anything will do.

something to note...if the hats are intended for recipiants that have undergone chemotherapy and have lost their hair, the hats need to be made of VERY soft material...cotton, microfiber, cashmere.  if not, it can really cause irritation on sensitive scalps.

one group near me recommended lion brand homespun as a very soft yet affordable choice.  they said it was soft enough.
