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!!

Kaiser Delivery for Fall

Peggy delivered 113 baby hats to
Kaiser Walnut Creek on 9/23/17 with 20 designated for Antioch, Kaiser. They were for  Halloween, Fall and several were for multiple births. The nurses were elated when the hats arrived since they had run out. They had just delivered two sets of twins so were happy we made some duplicate hats.

Thank you Karing Knitters for your contributions!

More baby hats

Peggy delivered 15 baby hats to Kaiser Walnut Creek on August 2, 2017.  She wanted to make sure that the two watermelon themed hats arrived on time for National Watermelon Day which is on August 3rd.  The nurses thought that was such as cute idea and LOVED all of the hats we donated.  Two of the nurses had just come out of delivery rooms and immediately searched for two baby girl hats.
