We Have Been Busy Busy Busy

On January 2, 2017, Ann, one of the Karing Knitters, told us the sad news that her friend was going to have to undergo chemo and asked if we would be interested in donating chemo hats.  We gave her 3 to take to the oncology center and may knit more in the future.

AWC members Mary Ann, and Sandi who also contribute to the Karing Knitters' charities, knitted baby hats for the Kempel quintuplets, 3 boys and 2 girls  born at Kaiser Walnut Creek on 1/11/18.  We also donated two larger hats for the older sisters, 18 months, and 3 years old. 

We also donated an additional 32 general baby hats to some very happy maternity nurses.

Our Holiday Delivery

Knitters, Rita, Harriet and Barbara delivered 75 hats and scarves made by Karing Knitters from both San Ramon and Castro Valley groups to recipients of a food pantry in Hayward. They were delighted to meet the people and see them choose a knitted hat or scarf. It made the delivery personal on both sides. Special thanks to Alex Chun for her contribution of a lovely scarf.

A Helpful Model

At yesterday's meeting of our San Ramon group Harriett was kind enough to try on an unfinished crocheted hat for Jan.  
Thank you Harriett.

Holiday Hat Delivery

Peggy delivered 71 baby hats (46 general, 16 Xmas, 9 Chanukah) to Kaiser Walnut Creek on 11/20/17. This was particularly fun since she met two very excited grandparents who were just on their way to meet their new grandson. Peggy had them select a hat for the newborn. They were most appreciative.
The nurses were also elated to receive more hats and said they would display some immediately and one stated this was her favorite part of her job!

Thank you for all of your donations!

more hats from Montana

Much to our surprise, we received
13 more knitted baby hats from Sandy in Billings, Montana!! These will be perfect for the holiday season.
 Thank you Sandy!!

We've gone international

On 10/2/17 the Karing Knitters
were knitting and a mother from England who was visiting her daughter stopped to see what we were knitting. This woman has 11 grandchildren with two more on the way. Jan (center) immediately gave her two of the crocheted hats she had just finished to give to the newborns. The woman was thrilled and now we can say that our hats are enjoyed internationally!!
