|HATS FOR THE HOMELESS|
Hats for the Homeless will be launching its 4th year of knitting hats to be distributed to local shelters in the Minneapolis area. In 2011, we collected over 1200 hats. Winters are cold in Minnesota, so we prefer washable wool for the extra warmth it provides. Dark solid colors with no pom-poms on top seem to be the style preferred by our recepients. Patterns will be available.
September 15th on Saturday, we will be knitting at the Midtown Farmers Market on Lake Street and Hiawatha Ave. from 9:30 to 12:30. Bring along your needles and yarn for working on a hat. Also a shopping bag for picking up some fresh locally grown veggies. Bring along a lawn chair.
September 22nd on Saturday we will be knitting at the Fulton Farmers Market on 50th Street and Chowen Avenue So. from 9:30 to 12:30. Again bring along your knitting supplies for working on a hat. There is also a vendor selling beautifully hand-spun yarn at this market.
Both markets have great food vendors for a mid morning snack.
