This week I'm concentrating on hats. Gloria, one of our K4 members and my star student in Monday's knitting & crocheting class, is volunteering at a shelter for homeless veterans in Detroit and we thought it would be a good idea to make up some hat and scarf sets that would be in masculine colors that we could donate. The shelter is serving more vets than they can house, so some are still living on the streets and will need warm clothing as winter approaches. I enjoy making hats more than scarves and Marian likes to make scarves more than hats. A partnership has been born!.. I bought home enough skeins of dark green yarn to make at least 4 hats and Marian took skeins of black yarn for scarves - next Thursday, we'll swap the yarn and she'll make scarves to go with my hats and I'll make hats to go with her scarves. We're visiting friends today and I'll take my knitting along in hopes of finishing green hat #2. I made a bright yellow hat Thursday night to go with a scarf that Virginia had made and I still have another scarf like the ones above to go with a window pane hat I finished during the meeting on Thursday. I can't tell you how much it means to me to be a part of this group, to be able to knit as much as I want and know that the finished items will go to people who need them.
