Windchill minus 20 expected , time for Warm Hats

Executive decision: I couldn't look at the beautiful hats in boxes in the house knowing the windchill in the next 24 hours in Chicago is expected to be well below zero. I've put them in the hands of the Convent and they will warm Someones very soon.

Other hats that are sent will be brought right over the day the arrive at my house. The contest continues until January 5th.

To those of you who have made these hats, I hope you feel as good as I do knowing you've helped. This is the selfish part of giving, but I think it is okay to feel good about it. I DO!

I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

I am so glad that you did that. We were visiting my mother today and she asked whether I had sent the hats. It is 20 degrees here and I had been thinking to myself "would it be impolite to suggest that you start hat distribution rather than waiting for all to arrive?" Et voila!

I hope that this gives a bit of cheer to someone who might otherwise not have much, especially at this time of year when we all hope for better things for the future.

Thanks again for organizing.

Of course you could have suggested it to me. You are so welcome for the simple organization of the charity hats.

Wonderful idea! I'm so glad to hear the hats will be warming hearts and heads during this especially cold time. Thanks Kathy!

This is a wonderful idea... I love it and I'm sure that the recipients will be so thankful.

Looks chilly! About how many hats do you have so far?

Good luck with your amazing hat drive.

Grief... minus 20 is cold! Here at the moment we have + 10 (LOL! that is winter huh...) but the forecast is that after Christmas the temperatures will drop to - 5
It is good to share the hats with the ones who are in need... :-)
