  1. Bonnie Wagner :

    Yay! I’m excited!!

  2. Thank you for the free patterns. I support my local cancer network and hospice by making hats. Most families are touched by cancer, as I have lost family members and dear friends. This is a great service of passing our God given gift of crocheting forward. My daughter calls it “my Jesus gift”. There are many ways to donate, at craft shows when I notice someone that is dealing with cancer I give them a hat! I have received many hugs and shared tears with many members of the cancer patient’s family. I applaud this effort. Thank you.

  3. I am interested in knitting for charity .how do I get free patterns for hats for chemo patients and babies?
