A fence lined with free homemade caps

An 83-year-old woman from Plymouth, Massachusetts, has knitted 75 warm hats for young people, but she refuses to take any credit. "I like doing them," she says, "I think it's fun. I just like to stay in the background. It makes me feel good that I can do something for someone."

It takes her all day to make just one cap, so she was working pretty hard before the Christmas holidays. Finally her daughter hung all 75 hats in plastic bags along a fence at Nelson Memorial Park. Plymouth gets cold in the winter, and a few days later, only four hats were left. "If I ever see anybody in Market Basket or something wearing one of these hats, I'm thrilled to pieces," said the anonymous knitter.
