MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - A group of knitters is working anonymously in central New Jersey to ensure that those in need can stay warm during the brutal winter months.

Known collectively as the “Morristown Fiber Fairy,” the group has made numerous scarves and hats that they have left on bronze statues at the Morristown Green since early January.

Each item comes with a note: “If you need this to help keep you warm in this cold weather, then it is now yours. Life is good, pass it on. - The Morristown Fiber Fairy.”

When asked about their work, the knitters told the Daily Record of Parsippany (https://dailyre.co/1ol4n1S) that their goal was to bring cheer to their community. They also say their efforts show that you can help people without spending large amounts of money or investing a lot of time.

The Morristown residents were inspired by a similar public act of kindness project involving scarves tied around monuments in Ottawa, Canada. Seasoned knitters, they decided to take the idea to their downtown Morristown.

The scarves and hats are just a small part of the Morristown Fiber Fairies’ kindness. As spring sets in, the group will be out on the streets of Morristown flashing smiles and holding doors for strangers and sending out positive messages on notes or billboards and scrawled on sidewalks with chalk, they said.
