52 Woolly Hats is about hats for people's heads. In the next year I will knit 52 hats, 1 per week and send each one to a human.

52 woolly hats, 1 per week for 1 year.

In the last year, I have been teaching myself to knit. It keeps me busy. I have produced a range of ill-fitting / near perfect woolly hats and most of them now sit in my house without heads to parade them. My wife does not want any more hats.

I do not want to make any money, I want people to have hats. To join in, please donate anything between £2-4 into this pot of wool and in the next 52 weeks, a hat will arrive to sit upon your head. If you do this, send an email with the address you would like your hat posted to and your colour preference (cannot guarantee I will be able to custom all colours because I gotta work with what I've got) to 52woollyhats@gmail.com 

I would also love you to reply to the above email address with a passport style photograph of you in said hat. I'm trying to make art. Alone, I may fail, the road is long and perilous, but with your help and the aid of the online bubble world, woolly hats may be worn for a lifetime. If nobody donates - I will be knitting hats anyway. 

Good tidings - from a hat maker. 

ps. I only have 37 friends on the platform of facedubook so please pass this plea onwards to your own friends, virtual or real.
