A new friend, Rosanne from New Jersey sent us these 40 hats for babies in the NICU.
She attached a card to each hat that reads:
Here’s a loom-knit hat
- from a non-smoking home in NJ
- machine washed 2x Dreft Newborn
- contains no wool
From bartleby & rowe
Her note reads:
We emailed last week- This is Box 1 of 2, full of loom knit hats, mostly preemie and baby sizes with a few others. I’m getting better at it, but these were my first ones. Box 2 is also in the mail.
Thanks for the work you do!
We are so appreciative that Rosanne found us and sent us such a great bundle to help spread love, joy and hope in the world!
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!
We received the above creations, just in time for our Easter delivery, from our friend Gail. This is Gail’s 3rd contribution to us! Her note read:
Please accept these 40 hats for your project. Included are 4 bunny hats. I hope they will be useful.
Thank you Gail for these wonderful hats, they will absolutely be useful. Especially the bunny hats, that will go nicely with our bunny hats we have included for this months delivery. Gail even sent us the cutest hat with a puppy dog and bone on it. That will surely brighten someones day.
As always, we look forward to your next creations.
