Here are the ones I recently made
Bev's Adult/Teen Hat
Two Boy Beanies from SNB: The Happy Hooker
And finally, I thought a Granny Hat was needed, so I made Bev's Groovy 70s Hat
Also used Red Heart SuperSaver in Peruvian Print.
So far, all are adult sizes. I think my next few hats will be child sizes and probably some solid colors since I am getting a bit tired of the ombre prints.

Whoo hoo - today is my birthday, my ba-ba-ba-birthday.
One of my presents (thought he doesn't realize it of course), I got a text from Donny Osmond about his new single (D & M have a new CD coming out). I'm not sure how long this link will be available, but HERE is where you can listen to it. I LOVE IT (of course!!)
Also, he looks FANTASTIC ! But then again, he always does.

This picture shows the first hat I just finished. The pattern can be obtained from Bernat.
I have very, very little time to knit and crochet these days so sadly probably won't get a lot done - I'd love to make about 20, many of the girls in the Ravelry Warming Families group have long surpassed that, but with my work demands, my home demands, my friend and family demands and my health demands, I will be lucky to finish 20, but that will be 20 people that will have some warmth that otherwise wouldn't have and that is pretty good.
As you can see, this one has somewhat girly colors and in my experience, at least in my city, the majority of the homeless are men, so the next one I am working on has a bit more masculine colors (at least I hope the finished one looks more masuline).
I will probably mostly be crocheting them (although would love to knit a few baby ones) but I crochet about 50 times faster than I knit, so I will probably stick to crochet.
If you'd like to participate/donate to this wonderful cause, please leave a comment and I'll get back with you.
