Here's a shout-out to my mom, who at 88 years old has spent the past year knitting hats for community members. These are people who come to the Friday Night Dinner that Grace Memorial Church hosts every week; many people who come are without housing and living outside. Community members all receive holiday gift bags during December with basic items like hats, gloves, scarves, toothpaste, etc. Warm hats make a big difference - it is really getting cold out. My mom has done this for the past three years.
Choosing the yarn, the patterns and the style - even the size. This is her creativity and art. I am so proud that she continues to use her gifts and skills to make a difference.
