500 Crochet Hats to Keep 500 Heads Warm

500 Crochet Hats to Keep 500 Heads Warm

Marybeth Sanchez from Brule, NE loves to crochet and had made some hats before for OGT’s Rocky Mountain Branch in Julesburg, CO. Marybeth decided in honor of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation and challenged herself to make 500 hats for OGT. The first 400 only took four months - from January through April, made the winter days go faster. Then the weather turned warm and she wanted to be in the garden, so the last 100 took from May to July! She had lost her sister the previous year and was given her yarn stash [ a very large tub]. She used that for a lot of the hats and several of her church sisters donated yarn and I purchased some. Marybeth brought in 3 full tubs – 500 crocheted hats and her prayer is that each hat warms ears and God's Word warms hearts of those that wear them.(11/2017)
