Teen photos!

Erin from Big City Mountaineers has sent some photos of teens enjoying their Rad Bad Beanies! She says:

They were definitely a hit—the girls especially made several comments about how “cute” the hats were. We have some fall and winter excursions planned in different areas of the country, so I’ll be sending them out to use even more in the colder weather.

Check them out at the Rad Bad Beanies photo gallery!

We need more beanies!

Cool weather is approaching, and teens hiking in the mountains on mentoring trips need some rad lids to protect their growing noggins!

Every hat you send earns you free tickets for the Knitzilla raffle! Who knows, your generosity could earn you some generous knit swag!

Need a stash re-hash? Check with your LYS to see whether they would offer a discount for yarn that goes to charity projects—or would outright donate some!

Tell your friends about the Rad Bad Beanies project to support urban youth!

Hi Sedda,

Another box arrived yesterday—how GREAT to see more fun colors arrive, especially when many of our older fleece hats have mysteriously “disappeared” this summer, so these personalized handmade ones are even better. Thank you to everybody who contributed to the project—with a strangely rainy and cool Colorado high country summer, they will undoubtedly be out on the trail throughout August.

Thanks!
