Hookin’ for a Cause

Knitting Rays of Hope DonationHi Crafters!  Just wanted to post real quick about a website I came upon last year when I started Looming.  It’s called Knitting Rays of Hope.  They make hats for Cancer Warriors, Babies in the NICU and a few other causes.  I believe they just started in 2012 so this site is farely new.

I just sent this package last week filled with hats mostly for boys but my daughter and I also made some for the girls.  We plan on making more to send hopefully in a few month!

If you have been wanting to make and donate hats you’ve got to check them out! I know there are LOTS of places but just had to share this one too!  PLUS they have some great hats for the Loom too which you can find HERE!
I know they have a Minion one that I am for sure going to try.  If you have thought about Looming they’ve got some GREAT tips and how to’s on the site also! As I mentioned that’s how I found them!  So CLICK HERE to check them out!  As always thanks for stopping by &

Happy Craftin’,

Hats and Headbands

Hats and HeadbandsI wanted to share some hats & beanies that I donated in August. So what does 29 Headbands & 34 Beanies look like? Started these on Friday July 25th and they were ALL finished by Monday August 4th! My Mom helped with some of the hats and so did my Daughter & Son-in-law! Yep he loomed a hat! 

They went to an Orphanage in Zambia – You can read about the Mission HERE! Loved making them!  I have to see if I can get pics with the kids wearing them!  I would LOVE to see that!

I hope to be making some more hats for an Orphanage in Mexico that they go to more frequently.  I barely made a dent in the yarn that I have. 

If you are interested in helping out please let me know. We can get together at my house! I’ll want to plan a “Hookin’ Date” soon! Crocheters, Knitta’s and Loomers welcome! Just want to donate leave me a comment here or you can email me at yvonne@yvonnemetz.com

Hope you all have a great weekend! We’ve got a tournament this weekend so my time will be spent at the ball park! Yes, I’ll have my yarn & bag with me! Wait til you see what I’m working on. Maybe I’ll try to show you just a little teaser!

Happy Craftin’,
