Members of the "Mad Hatters," a group of knitting enthusiasts that meets at Carnegie Library of McKeesport, visited the city's Kane Regional Center on Monday to share more than 100 pairs of handmade leg warmers with residents.

The group also read a holiday story to residents and served refreshments.

The hatters meet Thursdays and took their name from the hats they knit for chemotherapy patients who have lost their hair.

For more information about the group, call (412) 672-0625.
