5 Year Blogiversary!

Today we are celebrating our 5 Year Blogiversary!

Minions

When we first began this journey, we had no idea that 5 years later we would still be going strong. It really is an amazing feeling to look back at how we have contributed to others and helped make their days a bit brighter. We are proud that we have done our part to give back to our community and we are so proud to have made and met so many wonderful friends on this journey.  As we have said before, we could not have done this without the support of our friends. A big shout out to everyone who made it possible for Knitting Rays of Hope to provide 4,956 hats to NICU babies and Cancer Warriors these past 5 years. Here is to another wonderful 5 years to come filled with continued friends, new friends, and Rays of Sunshine!

Easter Chicks

These chick hats are for a special Easter delivery!

We love doing these Easter inspired chicks along with the rabbits. Even if the little ones do not know about Easter yet,  it is still a great hat for Spring. We love Spring time when all the flowers are in bloom and the weather brightens up and gets warmer, yet not too warm. It’s a great time to spread rays of sunshine and we look forward to making our next delivery.

Easter Gifts from Gail

We received the above creations, just in time for our Easter delivery, from our friend Gail. This is Gail’s 3rd contribution to us! Her note read:

Please accept these 40 hats for your project.  Included are 4 bunny hats.  I hope they will be useful.

Thank you Gail for these wonderful hats, they will absolutely be useful. Especially the bunny hats, that will go nicely with our bunny hats we have included for this months delivery. Gail even sent us the cutest hat with a puppy dog and bone on it. That will surely brighten someones day.

As always, we look forward to your next creations.

A Hobby that Makes a Difference in the World

We received a box full of 70 adorable hats form Ceil and Pam in Florida.

Their note touches our heart with:

We are enclosing 70 hats made with love in a pet free, smoke free environment with acrylic yarn.  We are best friends and neighbors who were looking for some type of hobby to do and chose to make and send these hats to you.  What you are doing is our inspiration and we thank you.

We are so pleased that Pam and Ceil found us at the same moment they were looking for a hobby and chose to make these hats for our little warriors!  We will include these in our next delivery and are certain that these hats will spread hope and love!

Thank you! Thank you!  Thank you!
