Hats, Beanies, Taboggan so many words

crocheted hatsThere are so many words one can use when talking about a hat. Here's just a few: Hat, cap, beanie, beret, bonnet, cloche, fedora, skull cap, sombrero, tam, and toboggan. Toboggan can be confusing, as many think of a sled rather than a hat. Depends, I believe what part of the country you're from. But, whatever you call it; hats are awesome to aid the homeless in keeping warm. And, whatever your word choice is these hats from our good friend Sandie in Louisiana are awesome as always. Her work is always so well done. These 2 crocheted hats are nice and warm and large enough for adults. I know they will make 2 more people warmer, and glad to be wearing a hat,cap,beanie, toboggan, beret, bonnet, cloche, fedora, skull cap, sombrero/tam.

Many thanks Sandie for your on going support, it is greatly appreciated.

  1. Glad to help. I haven't been posting around as much lately, busy busy, but I've been reading. Great job on all the wonderful things being donated to keep these folks warm.

  2. I know those hats are a light color which is probably not very good for the homeless since they don't have washing facilities. I think I made those for someone and they changed their mind about what was needed. They are still warm though. I'm sure you found a good place for them. I will strive to choose darker colors in future.

  3. Not to worry Sandie, there is always a need. Believe I sent these onto the folks at Faith Mission. Many thanks for your ongoing support.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.
