Last year, around the time that I broke my arm, I came across this really cool blog called “Knitting Rays of Hope“. I was so impressed by their commitment to reach out to others, and help children and babies who are battling the ravages of cancer, in a very practical way.
A soft hat.
I couldn’t wait until my arm healed, so that I could make some hats, and share in their efforts to help others. I had never made these hats before, but they assured me that it was easy, and they even have some very helpful and handy tutorials on their blog site.
So….after several months of being in a cast, and recovery, my arm was feeling better, and I decided to give it a try!
It’s true! It’s easy, and fun!
I’m excited to announce that these “babies” are on their way today. 17 hats in different shapes and colors!
It feels so good to help others. 🙂 Go ahead, check it out for yourself, and make a hat or two or three, and then pass them on to someone in need!
Well…not really, but thanks. These are pretty easy 🙂
Those hats are really cute and will be so very appreciated by those who need them especially in this Polar Vortex or whatever the weather people are calling this very cold weather. One of the most precious things I saw when our family helped the relief effort on Staten Island after Superstorm Sandy was an older lady who had dozens of hand-knitted scarves she had made and was handing out to the victims. Those little acts of kindness mean so much to those who have lost everything.
Thank you for your very kind words. It really is a great feeling to help others.
These look very cute and soft! Thank you for making a difference! You are Awesome!
Thank you 🙂
You’re a blessing.
