|Hi knitters - |
here's a topic we discussed two weeks ago at Peet's - Lori's Hats for the Homeless project. Lori's original message is below & gives a useful pattern for knitting hats for donation.
I surprised myself by knitting three hats over the weekend using Lori's suggested pattern. Yes -- three! They are that quick to knit. I'll bring them Wednesday for show & tell, but I think I promised to post a link to the pattern to explain the idea & encourage more knitters to join in in making this donation. So read on & try knitting a hat for charity between now & our next Peet's meetup on Feb 3
good knitting to ya, see you soon

I am organizing a project to knit hats for the homeless, specifically for Southwest Chicago PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter). I chose this group because 1) my in-laws work with this shelter so I've confirmed that PADS would like hats and know they will be distributed and 2) Chicago is cold, cold, cold so warm hats are needed.
