Tuesday, we mailed 57 hats out to Miller’s Children Hospital in Long Beach. The shipment contained 28 hats for babies in the NICU and 29 hats for children Cancer Warriors. We want to extend a thank you to Janine who pitched into the funds to mail these hats to the hospital.
This shipment brings our total to 430 hats! We began, more or less, a year ago and are very proud of how much we have grown. We have made a total of 73 hats for adult Cancer Warriors, 113 hats for children Cancer Warriors and 244 hats for babies in the NICU in about 12 months. We have made some more great friends, like Sandra and Teresa who are so sweet and can knit beautiful hats so quickly. We have improved our skills, from pom-pom making to learning different stitches and crocheting embellishments. I would say 430 hats in 12 months is pretty darn good and next year, I hope we will be able to have over 500 hats!
