We are in need of LARGE HATS FOR MEN. As you think about your knitting for Hats for the Homeless, please consider knitting a hat for a man. Make it big (bigger than you think, really large), dark, and solid-colored (time and time again, we've been told by the men who've received our hats that they just don't like the patterns, brights or even stripes). We have so many BEAUTIFUL hats for women and kids, but now it's time to focus on the men for a semi-balanced ratio to distribute this year. Thanks!
We spread the word to piles of knitters at two local farmer's markets this fall--Fulton Farmer's Market and the Midtown Farmer's Market--and had a lot of fun sitting and knitting with so many of you in the presence of good food, great fun and lots of curious people. These knit in public charity knitting events are a great tool to spread the word and create excitement about Hats for the Homeless, so watch for details of more events to come!
