Cuteness Alert

Here is the hat I told you about in my last post. Isn't the pattern adorable?! I can't wait to start on another hat, and I already know it will be another pattern by Susan B. Anderson...the hard part will be deciding which pattern! The toddler-sized hats will be on their way to the Bristol Meyers Squibb Children's Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (say that three times fast!).

Meital just got back from mailing off those two gray hats to the Humble Stitch Project. She really is such a big help to me with all the mailing of packages. I like how she and I feel like partners in this project.

You may remember that a while back I sent off five pairs of baby and toddler socks to Hannah's Socks in Ohio. Today I got the most wonderful, personal note from Hannah's father, Vic Turner (follow the link to read about Hannah, her family, and her wonderful efforts on behalf of others). It made my day to know the socks had reached them and that they like them!

Terrific hat! I need to make one of those.
So wonderful how you got a personal note. So cool to knit socks for charity altho I might have trouble giving them away myself.

Awesome! The hat is really pretty and it's wonderful that you received a note. It's good to know that the items were received safely, even better that they are appreciated.

Oh how sweet is that hat? I can just see it covering the head of a very special little one. As you see from FB, I am enchanted by my nephew. He doesn't like to keep his hat on, but he looks cute when he wears it.

Although you are knitting these items from your heart, it is nice to get a note that they were appreciated. It had to make your heart sing and encouraged you to continue with your commitment.
