Nancy’s Hard at Work

We received these wonderful hats from our dear friend Nancy. We were so overwhelmed with joy when she contacted us to let us know that she was back to work on all of these wonderful hats. She told me that her husband came accross her yarn stash and told her she needed to get rid of some of it. We are glad he did as pictured above is the result of her purging. She even has a new idea for creating a security octopus for our NICU warriors and she is working on those for her next donation. We can’t wait to see her new creations as she is such a talented crocheter.

If anyone else feels the need to purge some of their yarn they have stashed away we would love to take the creations off your hands:)

172 NICU Hats Delivered

To kick off September, we delivered 172 hats to St. Joseph’s Neo-Intensive Care Unit!  Thank you to everyone who made this delivery possible!  We have delivered 5,499 hats in total since we began!

172NICU-Hats

We delivered the hats to our sweet friend Melissa, who will take them into St. Joseph’s NICU.  Hailey (Melissa’s daughter) and Jazlyn (my daughter) helped make this possible by sorting and labeling the hats.  We are so grateful for everyone involved and making a difference in the world.

We are planning another delivery for the children Cancer Warriors of CHOC for later this month in honor of Children Cancer Awareness Month!  And we also have Halloween around the corner, so if you want to make Halloween inspired hats, please send them to us by the beginning of October.

Thank you so much for everyone’s hard work and dedication!

Hats from New Jersey

Earlier this month, a new friend, Dawn from New Jersey sent us these goodies!

Dawn's hats

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!

Thank you!

Gail’s Contributions

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!

So Many Chemo Hats – So Much Love

Last month, we received a box full of colorful hats from our good friend, Donna in Washington State.

Donna's Hats

Her note reads:

It is both an amazing & wonderful feeling how often my thoughts turn to you & your work in the world.  It is such an honor to participate.

I read all your posts and pay attention to every note and picture of hats people send.  What a good idea to share these pictures & notes from people! It is so good to feel the connection.

This box of 45 hats is sent with much love.

We appreciate great friends like Donna who always show support and offer words of encouragement to keep going!  Thank you so much!  I am so glad that our contributors feel connected and part of a great team!  There would absolutely be a much smaller Knitting Rays of Hope, if we didn’t have so many generous friends from all over the country!

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

Hats to Keep Lil’ Ones Warm

A new friend, Laurie sent us a box a little bit ago full of these hats.

NICU Hat

Her sweet note reads:

25 hats to keep the little ones warm

🙂

We are trying to catch up on all these shipments!  We really do appreciate you and your generosity, and we apologize for not blogging about the shipments we have received sooner.  Between vacations and different classes we have been attending, in addition to spending some quality time with our families, things have been a bit crazy over here!  But I promise we will get all the hats photographed and blogged about!

We are preparing a delivery to the NICU for the end of August (hopefully) and a huge delivery to CHOC for the pediatric oncology unit in September!

Thank you for all your support!
