You can also leave me comments on this blog.

I would also love a photo of you wearing your new hat if you would like to share one.

I welcome your contributions! If you would like to make a yarn or hat donation, please email me or leave a note in the guestbook. I am happy to make sure that your donation finds a home with someone in need.

Looking Forward to the New Year!

I just want to take a minute to thank everyone for their help and support of my special project. With your help, I have donated over 900 hats this year. I hope to top that next year and continue to expand my donations.

I received a very nice email from a new friend Teresa, who wears my hats. Here are some photos that she sent!
I had a great visit with my friend Trisha, who also wears my hats every day! She stopped by my house and gave me a whole bag of goodies for the holidays! She also stayed a while and helped make fudge with my mom, sister, and some other friends.

I am so grateful for all of the people that I have met and friends that I have made through my hat donations. I wish all of you a happy, healthy 2011!

New Hats for the Holidays!

A huge thanks to my friend and neighbor Jay for the beautiful hats that she just brought over to my house. The amount of time and attention to detail that she puts into each of her creations are an inspiration to knitters everywhere! The recipients of these hats will LOVE them!

Thanks Jay!

Back on Track

Yay! I made my first hat delivery since my heart problems started! I have kept up with my hat knitting, but my schedule has been very full with doctors lately. Thank you to everyone who has inquired about my health. It looks like my arrhythmia is originating in the right ventricular outflow tract. That means that it should not be life threatening. Great news! I was able to stop taking beta blockers and am medication free. I'm hoping that I won't have to start taking anti-arrhythmia drugs, but that remains to be seen. Right now, I'm doing great and am back at school after missing six weeks.
