Month of Hats

Thanks for all the sweet responses to my last post :-)
Here are some pictures of the hats I made in August during the darkest part of my depression:
 Told you there were a lot! Fifty preemie hats for the Guardian Grandmas. I'm hoping to get them in the mail the end of next week. The pattern can be found here at the Dainty Daisy. The hats in the first photo are made with the Option B 8th row. The hats in the second photo are made with the Option A 8th row.
I also made some hats for the Click for Babies charity drive; they're trying to raise awareness on the dangers of SBS (Shaken Baby Syndrome) by providing information to new parents about the PURPLE period of crying for infants.
With a baby right in the middle of this time period, I can sympathize deeply with their cause. I've made 24 hats for them so far, but would like to make 50 total. The hats have to be received by October 1, so my personal cut off date is September 20th.
Here are some of the hats (I haven't taken pictures of all of them):
The hats have to be at least 50% purple. To make it easier on me, I've been using the same pattern found here at Kelley's Yarns. Rounds 1-4, 6-7, and 9-10 are some shade of purple. Rounds 5, 8, and 11 (added by me, just a round of single crochets) are a contrasting color. The last two hats in the second picture are the Shell Stitch Beanie from the Dainty Daisy. 
That's all the pics I have for now.
Thanks for reading.
Blessings :-)
