I am continually amazed by the generosity of knitters and crocheters! This is the week when all of the scarves and hats made for Bear Hugs is collected for inclusion in gift bags for New Bethany Ministries. I do nothing more than send out a few announcements and talk about what I’m doing. The word spreads and, voila, scarves and hats appear as if by magic. My car is full with the bounty I have collected this week.
So far I have counted 109 scarves and 103 hats. That doesn’t include what I’ll find when I arrive at church tomorrow morning. Seventy-nine of the hats were knit by ONE of the singers in Choral Union. She makes them while she sits with Altzheimer patients.
When all is said and done, I’ll post a final tally. For now, thanks to all who have given of their time and talent to help those in need.
