We don't know from day to day what the news will be bringing us, but one thing for certain is that Minnesota winters are cold and everyone needs a hat.
This is our 14th year for collecting hats and distributing them to schools, shelters and social service agencies serving those in need. With covid19 and social distancing, knitting groups aren't getting together...we are at home knitting by ourselves. I am asking you to spread the word to your friends...hats for kids, women and men. More information about the project can be found in the blog.
One of our knitters has written up her favorite hat pattern for charity knitting including several sizes which we are including in the blog. Check out the Very Basic Knit Hat now in the Knitting Patterns tab.
Hat distribution will begin in October and continue as long as we are receiving hats. We will be doing things a bit differently this year...I will be coordinating drop off sites with school social workers and also taking donations to area food shelves.
