Their note touches our heart with:

We are enclosing 70 hats made with love in a pet free, smoke free environment with acrylic yarn.  We are best friends and neighbors who were looking for some type of hobby to do and chose to make and send these hats to you.  What you are doing is our inspiration and we thank you.

We are so pleased that Pam and Ceil found us at the same moment they were looking for a hobby and chose to make these hats for our little warriors!  We will include these in our next delivery and are certain that these hats will spread hope and love!

Thank you! Thank you!  Thank you!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

We love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!  So I crocheted a hat thinking a young chemo warrior could appreciate a TMNT hat.

TMNT

I think that these fun turtles have really stood the test of time and I think it is a great hat for the boys. Now I am not saying that these are not for girls as well but it is always a struggle to find hats that we think boys will appreciate. I think that one of the problems I have always encountered with looming the hats is that the hat is a bit bunchy at the top and for some reason that does not seem to appeal to boys. Crocheting this hat really made it nice and sleek and removes the bunchy hat problem. The double crochet stitch was surprisingly quick to crochet as well.  I look forward to making more of these hats soon.
