Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

Knitting hats

I knit hats with yarn left over from other projects. I have been blessed with people giving me yarn that they are through with.

Often you can make a hat with that left-over skein of worsted weight yarn. (I often use the Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted weight.) If there isn't enough in one color you can make a striped hat!

I knit these hats at my son's basketball and baseball games because I can do most of it without looking at what I am doing. I also knit at meetings at church and in the car.

I have taken these hats to church. One year they were needing hats for the homeless in Charlotte so I took about a dozen to put in the box at church for that. Another time the Sudanese (the lost boys of the Sudan that are here in Chalotte) in our church were needing hats so I took a bunch then too.

Sometimes I take a few to our children's minister for her to have for any children needing hats.

These are all done on a very small scale. There is no other organization involved. I have no idea how many hats I have made and given away. The receiver has no idea who made them and I have no idea exactly who they have gone to.

Knitting is just something I love doing and it is nice to be able to quietly do good.
