Kaiser Delivery

On Sunday, June 26, Peggy delivered 40 baby hats to      Kaiser Walnut Creek maternity ward.  Of the 40 hats, 12 were designated for the Fourth of July. As Peggy was arriving at the Kaiser parking lot, she noticed a couple with a brand-new baby and ask them if the baby had just been born. The proud parents said that the little girl was born yesterday. I told them that our group knits  hats for the maternity ward and I was on my way to make a donation.  I asked them if they would like to select a hat for their new baby. They were both thrilled that we would do such a nice thing for the new babies. They selected a cute light pink baby hat with fun fur around the rim and we're very grateful for the donation. I asked the father if he was a San Francisco Giants fan and he said absolutely. So I let him also select a Giant's  themed hat which he did and again was very thankful for it.
   Once I finally reached the maternity ward, the nurses were so happy and grateful to receive the hats and said they'd save the 4th of July hats until next Monday. A very fun time for me!

Barbara donated hats and port pillows to Children's Hospital in Oakland. Here are the kind words from the Child Life Specialist:

Thank you so much for your donation of 12 knitted hats and 15 port pillows. I received them  yesterday and I was delighted to be able to have such special, handmade items to be able to give away to our patients. I know our patients will value and appreciate them a great deal. Thank you for sharing your generosity and creativity with us.

Peggy made the contact and Barbara delivered 7 knitted hats, 2 cotton scarf/hats and 20 drainage bags to Diablo Valley Oncology in San Ramon. It's in a building up the hill and adjacent to the San Ramon Regional Medical Center. It is one of Diablo Oncology's  four locations and the nurses can share our donations amongst these locations.  This is the 10th place where we've donated in the past 6 years!

WE are on the road again

Peggy took a week long trip to Upstate New York and happened upon this knitting shop in Esperance, New York.  Although the shop was closed because it was Memorial Day, Peggy liked what she saw in the window.
