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.
Here is my latest creation that I crocheted for a little chemo warrior.
We are collecting hats for children and adult chemo warriors, as well as for babies in the NICU. Our goal is to continue with our monthly deliveries, so we will need a pretty substantial and steadfast supply of hats, scarves, blankets or anything else your heart guides you to knit, crochet, loom-knit or sew.
Please let us know if you need any more information. You can contact us
Have a fantastic day!
Our good friend, Dee sent us these lovely hats, scarves, <some even in sets> and hand cozies. All of her creations are so adorable and unique. Though we love all the hats, we are truly impressed with the hamburger and green hoodie.
Such a wonderful Hamburger

The note Dee sent along reads,
Here is my final shipment for 2016. All the 100% acrylics are in one bag.
The blends or other fibers are in a separate bag. Each hat has been tagged as to the fiber content and all are made in a smoke free, pet free home
Be back with more in the Spring!

Becky, our friend from Blessing through Raindrops sent these 31 adorable hats.
Becky’s lovely card reads:
I know it’s been a while, but I haven’t forgotten you! Hopefully you will be able to include these hats in one of your next deliveries. I’ve really enjoyed making them & learning new stitches, slowly along the way. Thank you again for all the hard work you put in to making this all work! You are amazing! Take care & God bless you & your family!
We are ever so grateful for Becky’s support and generosity! Her hats are just as lovely as ever- so cute. I would love to learn all these amazing stitches! We are truly impressed and grateful for Becky’s dedication to helping us spread hope– and in such a cute style! We will definitely include these in our big December delivery!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Inspired by Vanessa and her ambition to crochet hats, I dipped into the crochet world and created these two hats.
My 1st crocheted hats attempts
I found a free crochet pattern that basically used a double crochet stitch online to follow. Luckily we had 1 Captain America patch that was ready to go, which added a perfect pizzazz to a pretty simple hat.
Off to begin another crochet project to advance my hat making skills.
