Warm Hats, Not Hot Heads Phase II

I now invite knitters and crocheters everywhere to stitch a hat for anyone who they’d like to thank for being a role model for civility or who may need a reminder that civility is the right path forward.  Do please check the tracker and see if your own U.S. Representative has had a hat yet – it would be awesome to eventually cover 100% of the House as well as the Senate – but don’t feel like you have to knit for someone you can’t vote for.

Who to knit for?

  • How about a second hat (or third or fourth) for your congresspeople if someone else knit their first one?
  • How about that television pundit who makes your stomach hurt when they brandish opinion as fact and rile up fear instead of reason?
  • How about your local politicians?

Please leave a comment on this blog AFTER you knit and mail your hat.  I will track these on our Warm Hats Not Hot Heads Recipients List, over on the sidebar of this blog.  You can also email me at (e DOTdon’tspellitout! silva AT comcast DOT net) or send me a private message on the WHNHH Ravelry group.  I’m going to keep this up indefinitely, so feel free to send a hat this month, next month, or even next election cycle.  Just let me know when you do.

Do feel free to discuss your plans to knit over on the Ravelry group – share ideas on how to expand the effort and who might need or deserve a hat.  This is now the knitting public’s effort.  I do ask that we stay civil ourselves – that is my only real requirement and I will moderate the group’s discussions with that in mind.
