This spoke to me. I knit. It is like a meditation for me. it calms me. Many hats have been made in the week before a dental visit!

My yarn selection is like a paint pallete to an artst. I imagine baby hats that I will make with the softest yarn. Sturdy acrylic yarn becomes hats for kids. It stands up to the washing machine and the dryer. As I create, usually with a movie playing on TCM, I think about the people who will be warm in the cold weather when they wear what I have donated. And I love the fact that I will never know who they are! I am like a Secret Santa!

Our local food bank receives my hats and scarves in October to be added to their coat drive. There are many places that accept knitted or crocheted items. Some animal shelters will take them. Check online to see where you, too, can donate.
