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.

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.
These beautiful hats were sent to us from our friend Becky who has been contributing since 2014.
Her lovely card reads:
I am so thankful for you & your family & all the work you do to help others! You are an inspiration to me. Enclosed are 66 hats of all sizes & colors, made with love & prayers to everyone they will touch! I am so happy to be a part of your outreach & I’ve already started on the next box! 🙂 Thank you & have a great week!
God Bless You!
Thank you Becky and we can’t wait to receive the next box! We couldn’t ask for better friends here at Knitting Rays of Hope. Becky makes the most adorable hats with bows and her stitches are just beautiful. We aspire to create hats like these one day. Thank you Becky for all of your support.
Please stop by Becky’s blog: Blessing through Raindrops and say Hi! Let her know what you thought of her wonderful hats!
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!
A little bit ago, Judy in southern California sent us a package with these cute hats.
We are extremely grateful for friends like Judy and their commitment to making a difference in the world!
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!
