My Mission

I'm on a mission tonight to crochet as many hats as possible. It has gotten nasty cold here and my students are ill prepared. Many of them had hooded sweatshirts on today. Last year I received a box of donated hats and gloves that I held on to, as I got them at the end of March. I took them down and gave them out today, they went fast, but didn't really have "boy" colors. So I'm on a mission to crochet a hat for each of my students...that's 58 hats! A couple years ago when I looped with my students from 2 to 3, I made them each a scarf. That was 48 scarves. Some of them didn't get them until the spring. They are now in 7th grade and they STILL come up to me and tell me that they still have their scarves.

I need to eat to fortify my strength and then get set, ready, go...I think I can make 3 or 4 tonight. If I do nothing else! They will be simple double crochet or half-double crochet hats....First I'm gonna finish mine though!

That's so sweet! If I didn't have 150 I would want to do that!

awww....that's so great, Tammy. Do you know about Dina's big effort to give all the homeless kids in her area handmade things? You two are cut from the same cloth. Good luck!

This is extremely generous of you. They would ALL have to be exceptional to get that much of my time, money and effort; they are lucky little buggers!

Your blog is looking different; I like what you've done with the place.
