It which the Rabbit attempts a Good Work

Inspired by Betsy Greer's Knitting for Good, the Rabbit has decided to make a series of items to donate to various local charities in the fall. "Donation Hat #1," above, is the first of them. It was a wonderful excuse to use this fabulously garish (and soft, soft, soft) Patons Rumor, an alpaca/acrylic blend (the colorway is called moonstone). Normally the Rabbit eschews acrylic, but she couldn't resist the hand of this yarn.

The pattern is the "Garter Stitch Cap," from the first book of knitting patterns the Rabbit ever bought, Handspun Handknit. With bulky yarn and big needles, it only took an evening.
