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 recently gave all hats to our sweet friend, Melissa to take into St. Joseph’s and CHOC, just in time for Easter. There are 172 hats and booties for babies in the NICU at St. Joseph and 44 hats for pediatric chemo warriors at CHOC.

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.
Easter holds special childhood memories for me, and I made these hats little heads hoping that Easter will also be special for them.
This year, the difference is that these hats are all crocheted, not loomed.
We are planning a huge delivery this weekend, and these will be part of that delivery. I hope that the recipients of the hats know how much loved they are.
Hope everyone has a fantastic day!
Our new friend, Cindy sent us 2 boxes full of hats, scarves, quilts and blankets! She has 100 hats and 3 scarf sets, and 8 blankets.
The quilts are made in Cindy’s quilting group, Quilting Girls Gone Wild and the little crochet blankets are made by Mandy, a dear sweet young lady who is a brain cancer survivor and has a heart of gold! Mandy loves to crochet and always has her special touch into each blanket.
The hats and scarves are made with love by Stephanie, Megan and Cindy. How busy they must have been to be able to create so many hats! We love that they kept busy and at task making all these hats to help spread love and joy. They were having so much fun, that Cindy’s husband even tried his hand and created a little grey hat!
We are so grateful for friends like Cindy and her friends & family, who are steadfast in their mission to help Knitting Rays of Hope!
Please know that you are making a difference in the world and spreading hope & love to folks who are currently experiencing very difficult times. Your hats, scarves and blankets, that you took so much time and care to create, show that people care about others and willing to take action to spread hope & love in our world!
Thank you for your dedication and generosity!
Cricket from New Jersey recently sent us a box full of these warm and cozy hats in all different sizes and colors.
Her short and sweet note read:
Hats for those who need them!
We are very appreciative of your generosity and continuous support! These will be included in our next delivery!
