I read this article online about kids at a homeless shelter being given hooded towels and thought, hey, I have been making these towels with no real purpose, other than to make them because they are cute. I contacted the lady in charge and she said she had some who couldn't send some towels she had promised because she didn't have the money and so now I know what to do with all of these towels! They will have a good home at the shelter and I hope the kids like them.
They aren't just for kids either. I made one for my son's girlfriend for Christmas. The towels are pretty big and I make the hoods big enough for a grown up to fit.
When my oldest was a little girl, I made her one without anything on it. That was her favorite towel. She loved being able to keep it on her head when she got out of the bath. I still have it 25 years later, holes and all. You would think I might get rid of it since I own about 50 towels, but for some reason it sticks around here, along with the kitchen towels with cows on them I got as a wedding gift. I guess I'm a bit sentimental or just a packrat.
