Earlier this month, a new friend, Dawn from New Jersey sent us these goodies!
Her letter reads:
Enclosed are some hats I would like to donate to your organization. I am new at loom knitting and hopefully the next batch that I send will be a little more professional.
I live in a smoke-free, pet-free environment. I think what you are doing is fantastic
These are perfect and so good for being so new! We thank you for following our criteria so that these hats can be sent in our monthly deliveries that will commence very soon. We look forward to your next shipment! 😉
I hope that the tutorials page is helpful. If we need to update that and add some other videos (made by others), please let us know!
Recently, we received a box from Gail full of these baby hats. All of them are so cuddly, soft, warm and adorable for babies and kiddos!
Her note reads:
Here are 30 hats of various sizes for your project. I hope they will be useful!
We are so grateful for friends like Gail, who are keeping their fingers busy with knitting for HOPE!
Thank you for wanting to make our world better and actively doing something about it!
Late last month, we received a box that had these beautiful & colorful blankets and adorable hats that Louisa in New Jersey sent us.
4 Beautiful Blankets
We have been told that the blankets are a huge hit and are so grateful for the extra time that it takes to create these!
14 Soft & Warm hats
We are so grateful that these were sent to us, and we will include them in our next delivery!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Today we are celebrating our 5 Year Blogiversary!
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!
We want to wish everyone a wonderful Easter! We hope that your Easter is filled with love and family time.
These are the special creations we delivered just for Easter. Thank you to everyone who supports us! We couldn’t do it without you.

We want to thank all of our team to make this delivery possible. We could not have accomplished so much without you guys and are so thankful to know so many wonderful people. With this delivery, we have donated 4,956 hats to spread hope, love and warmth in our world! Thank you for making a difference in the world!
If you want to get involved and make a difference, please contact us.
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.
