We received a large donation of yarn from this wonderful group of women last week. Below is a little about the group and a picture of Mary who has recently passed away and I am sure will be truly missed. I have not met these lovely women but they seem like a very loving and caring group.
The group was started by Sonja West who taught knitting at the Windsor Recreation Center many years ago. We meet twice a month in each others homes for fellowship and to share projects and knitting tips. There are all levels of knitters in the group of about a dozen women. Mary Evans is the lady who passed. She was a happy and sweet person and she is greatly missed by all of us. I have included a picture of Mary with two of her grandchildren.
Thank you for the work you d...

1. Last week a Coworker gave us a huge bag of yarn to use to make Chemo Hats. The colors and texture is perfect to make lots of hats. Thank you Cathy!!!
2. Then yesterday June from Arizona brought in 50 Chemo hats that she made. This woman is remarkable she moved last year to Arizona. She brings 50 hats 2 times a year for us to bring to the Cancer Centers and Hospitals. Thank you June!!!
3. I received two very grateful emails yesterday from Patients that are going through Chemo and taking a new hat from the baskets that are at the Cancer Centers. One was from Rocky Mountain Cancer Center in Longmont and the other from Lakewood. This is why we do what we do!!! Please take a moment to read them.
4. Then of course Lavonna who is such a loving and giving person that delivers all these hats. You are truly my Angel!!
Please send us your story whether it is you that has been through this or a friend or family member. Your story might help someone else.
This shows how much Cancer has touched everyones lives. We can make a difference One Hat at a Time.

Then yesterday a lady named June who moved to Arizona last year stopped in to my work. She was in town visiting and delivered and made 70 Chemo Hats. They are all beautiful! Again, I can't believe how lucky we are to have such wonderful women that put all their time and love into every hat they make.
We are truly blessed!
Much Love, Missy

I recently started knitting again after a very long hiatus and realized that I can only make so many things I would wear. One day a gal in my knitting group mentioned we could do hats for chemo patients and another gal posted the link to your website on facebook. I knew then I was sold: there was no better way to put my knitting to good use and make something that someone going through a hard time in their life could enjoy.
