Warm Hats, Not Hot Heads…

Warm Hats, Not Hot Heads is the brainchild of Allison and Ellen.  The plan is for many knitters to join in on their effort to introduce a bit more kindness into the political sphere with the delivery of handknits to our Congresspeople.

I, for one, am tired of the hate-filled screaming matches between our elected officials – so, I am doing my part.  This is the hat I made for Kelly Ayotte. 

It will be sent along with this letter:

Dear Kelly,

This hat was hand knit with care for you. Many of your colleagues will also be receiving hats from knitters of all political stripes and from all around the nation.

Why a hat? Knit hats meet a simple need for warmth. They are an every day comfort. Everyone can use a good hat.

Civil political discourse also meets a simple need – the need for our government to have the best information and insights from many viewpoints. It would be an every day comfort to me and many other Americans if the airwaves were free of hate-filled rhetoric, and it would lead to good government. As I’m sure you agree, everyone can use good government.

Thank you for your service, and best regards,

Sara

I will also be sending one to Frank Guinta…same hat style only in blue…
