So, I am sure many of you have been dying to know the final outcome of the Team USA Hat drive! We received our last few hats shortly after the new year and set about to sorting and counting them. All in all we received about 285 hats from generous knitter's across the country.
As we received hats, we posted photos throughout the process on Facebook. In case you missed some of those, check out the album we created there. It shows of many of the beautiful hats we received!
Here are some of those awesome hats, up close! We received so many, we began collecting them in large boxes until we could sort them all and prepare them for shipping. So many extremely creative hats were sent! We loved seen them all!
Once we had received all of the hats and tallied them up, we decided to take a few group photos in the yarn hot tub just before we shipped them off to the USSA! We all had a great time posing with the fantastic hats you all made!
Once we receive some photos back from the USSA of all of these lovely hats on some athletes, we'll be sure to post more photos. In the meantime, thank you so much for all of your hard work. We know the athletes are going to love receiving the hats you made. We also hope you've enjoyed seeing your hats on the blog!
Happy knitting and crocheting!
