Haven Hats

SH-Haven HatsMy husband, Jay, will be the first one to tell you that I find it impossible to sit without having something for my hands to do. If my hands aren’t busy, I’m probably asleep.

My favorite types of in-front-of-the-TV-watching-a-movie projects are small, the kind that have a distinct beginning, middle and end.

Yarn projects are perfect for this type of endeavor. Like most yarn lovers, I have smaller amounts of lots of colors, and I developed a crocheted hat pattern that I dubbed “The Haven Hat” to use them up. I donate them to our local homeless shelter of the same name.

Here’s a link to that pattern: haven-hats-pattern-11-23-2016

When it’s cold outside, children are not allowed to play outdoors at recess if they do not have warm hats and mittens or gloves.

If you are a yarn person, please consider knitting or crocheting hats for children in homeless shelters or whose families use food pantries.

If you sew, please consider making fleece hats for the same purpose.

If you are not a crafter, how about purchasing warm hats and mittens to donate?

We can all help.

And I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
