World Travelers

World travelers that we are (giggle), we can never pass up an interesting yarn shop:

from Dunedin, New Zealand

from Queenstown, New Zealand

from the open air market in Puerto Montt, Chile

from Punta Arenas, Chile

from Montevideo, Uruguay

from Port Stanley, Faukland Islands

from Santos, Brazil

from Ushuaia, Argentina

Traveling is so much fun - and yarn shopping is even more fun.

for St Patrick's Day

The Karing Knitters delivered 23 hats (10 of which were green and white) to the Maternity Ward on March 16th, just in time for St. Patrick's Day.  One of the nurses said, "Now I can't pinch the St. Patty's babies since they'll be wearing green for St. Patrick's Day"...LOL.  The nurses were busy with their duties but very thankful for the delivery.

Another happy delivery

On Feb. 14th (Valentine's Day) we were able to deliver over 100 hats to Kaiser Hospital in Walnut Creek. 
Some went to chemo... including two we were able to give directly to patients. Here is Knitter Peggy, posing with one of the happy recipients. 
Some went to the maternity for Valentine babies.
And one proud dad spotted us and picked out a cap for his newborn son.
