I am impressed by the Occupy Wall Street Movement, and I want to do something to show my support and gratitude. You may not have heard about it yet. It is a loosely organized group of people who have set up camp near Wall Street. The gathering is peaceful now, if a bit disruptive for the day to day business in the neighborhood. If you would like to find out more, I have a couple of links for you to try:
It is starting to get cold in New York, Chicago and Boston. Wouldn't it be nice for us to send them some hats? Can you think of a more personal way to say "Thank you"? I hope to collect 99 hats and send them off before Thanksgiving. It would be really grand if I could get 98 more yarn shops to join in.
If you would like to help with this effort, you can send or bring a handknit hat, pair of mittens or a scarf to
325B Grove St
East Lansing, MI 48823
If you have a favorite LYS near you, please feel free to encourage them to participate in this effort. I have started a thread on the LYS group on Ravelry.
