Gonna give it away.

I believe Michigan now has the dubious honor of having the highest rate of unemployment in the country (15%). Along with that comes a large number of newly homeless who have no more resources to fall back on. It's tough man! Really tough here. Someone in my city, I don't recall who, started a project where you take your hand knit hats and mittens downtown and clip them to a tree or fence along with a note explaining that the item is free for the taking. What I should do is take pictures of the items hanging around town. I don't see them often because, frankly, the items don't stay on the fence for all that long. Anyway, this one is ready to go. Bear says it's nice and warm.


  1. oh man. i wish i could invite you over for tea/coffee/treats and a little knitting party. you are GOOD.
