Ships Project

I found the Ships Project through a friend at work. This project makes knitted and crocheted hats and booties for the soldiers on ships and deployed in war areas.

I started knitting hats using Woolease so that the troops would not have to provide any special care for their hat. When I find it on sale, I buy as much as I can in all masculine colors.

I have knitted around 40 hats since I started, which is amazing with all of my other activities.

At work we have formed a knitting group and through the group another 25 hats have been made and sent to the project.

The troops send emails and pictures back to the organizer, so we know that they really appreciate what we do for them.

All I need is more yarn.
