Imagine opening a big box full of colorful and intricate hand-made knitted hats, made just for you, and in gratitude for who you are and what you do: that's the gift a group of knitters over at the knit and crochet community Ravelry give to us each year. And it's all coordinated and the hats are delivered by Annie, a knitter and Ravelry member local to Seattle (Annie recently starred in our Maker's Bag video.)
At our company holiday party last Wednesday, each of us picked a number out of a Travel Tray and then chose our hat. Picture the chaos that would result if all of us rushed the table of hats at once! This year's selection of hats was especially awesome (yeahhh Seahawks colors.)
Below are photos of the crew at the party and photos of each and every hat we received from the knitters of Ravelry. They're all so amazing that we wanted everyone to be able to see them! (Here's a link last year's post w/photos.)
Ben chose a Seahawks colors hat but later traded with Irma for a different hat.
We asked the crew what kind of food everyone wanted for the party this year and that ended up being: kale salad, fried chicken, cheese plates, vegan dips, raw veggies, bread, spinach dip, greek antipasto, macaroni and cheese, Chinese food and mashed potatoes.
