“One of the groups I ended up joining specifically had the purpose of making baby hats to donate to hospitals. I didn’t know that when I first joined. But I had already made friends with some of the people in it. And I felt bad not contributing to the cause when I was already attending,” Barsky said.
The Sweater Guy says he actually didn’t know how to knit hats before joining Tiny Toppers. Nowadays, he tries knitting two to three hats a month. “Most of the time, I knit sweaters. The hats are just something extra I do on the side for charity. Mostly, I work on the hats when I can only carry a small project with me,” he said.
Barsky plans to never stop doing what he enjoys doing. “I am hoping to be able to use my fame one day for a good cause.” It sounds like he already found one.
