Goal Exceeded!!!

Thank you to everyone!  We have 337 hats ready for the next ship!!!  That far exceeded our goal of 250 so thank you so much.  So many beautiful hats...

Watch Shanti's blog for the latest news on the winner of the gift certificate and which ship we will be supplying.  I will also post that information here after the news breaks.

MORE PRIZES have been donated!  Lynne has donated several bags of yarn and we will be awarding those in a few days after the last few hats trickle in.

So many people to thank.  Thank you so much to Signature Needle Arts for donating the $25 gift certificate.  Thank you to every single knitter and crocheter who happily donated their time and money.  You are all so nice and wonderful to correspond with.  Thank you to Lynne for the yarn and all the time and effort she has put into this from the very beginning.  Thank you to Shanti for having this idea and getting the ball rolling.   And finally, we all do this to say thank you to our Sailors.

Keep knitting we will let you know when the spring deadline is for our next ship.
