Today I had coffee with Linda, who is head of philanthropy for the San Diego North Coast Knitters Guild. It was great to see her again and get to know her a little bit better. She brought 103 hats that will be distributed across the nation by Téte â Téte. Each one of these hats was knit by a kind person who wants to help others and I am grateful for every single hat. The hours that it takes to choose or create a pattern, pick the yarn, carefully knit and finish each hat show that a lot of care goes into each and every hat. I know that the people who receive the hats will be even more grateful than I am for each knitters generous donation of their time and energy.

It has been a while since I have posted, but I wanted to let you know that the hats are still being produced and donated on a regular basis. My friend Emily and I started a club of students at my school to increase donations because the demand has been so great. The club has not donated any hats yet, but watch future posts for more information. Currently, we are teaching knitting/crochet to students and holding planning meetings.
The number of people with cancer will never cease to amaze me and I am so grateful to be in a position to help in this small way.
Please feel free to contact me if you are in need of a hat or would like to help knit (or donate a a hat or hats) to those in need. The hats are always provided free of charge and shipping is included. I can also provide yarn to anyone who would like to knit or crochet for us.
