Thank You so much for the positive responses to Riley's Hats! Your generosity is overwhelming and much appreciated.
Knit OR Crochet is just fine
Made for girls OR boys
DEFINE "SOFT" - If you'd put it on a baby - that's soft enough. I am using lots of Michael's & Hobby Lobby brand chunky acrylics as they are soft, washable, and insanely bright colors that I think the kids will like. Just be sure and test it under your chin (for softness) as not all acrylics/yarns are created equally.
Deadline: Please have the hats to me by 12/15/2011
If you have any further questions please leave them in the comments - I'll get back to you I promise (sometimes it just takes me a bit).
I'll keep you posted!
