I was inspired by this man named Ernie who hung hats in trees. That's when a light bulb went off to use yarn donated to me from a co-worker in colors that I didn't care for & remnant yarn I had from previous projects. With the weather actually getting colder in Cali, I thought this was a perfect opportunity to hit the streets of downtown San Diego where many homeless people reside to show my love. My lovely friend LaRon (photog), his girlfriend Monique and her sister Melissa tagged along in support. I documented this in photos in hope that it inspires other young crafters to give back to the community in some kind of way...

Very nice hats too!
