We are learning how to make dolls! Thanks, Denise at Loom a Hat.

Now that the weather is turning warmer and our stockpile of hats is growing larger, we have been looking for some summertime projects.

Loom a Hat to the rescue again!

We were inspired by Denise’s recent post (with full instructions!) on loom-knitting comfort dolls, and decided to try to make some of our own.  What fun – and perfect for the kids at the UVa Children’s Hospital!

Thanks, Denise.  You have been our inspiration from the start!

So excited to see Knitting Together donated hats on NBC 29!

We are pleased to be able to support Ramona’s Room in this wonderful positive-image boutique!

We were happy to see Knitting Together donated  hats in the NBC 29 story about the Flourish Boutique in the Emily Couric Cancer Center at the University of Virginia Health System:

Flourish is one of the only shops in central Virginia where women who’ve undergone chemotherapy can remember what it feels like to have hair and breasts again. Patients can also find positive messages on mugs, T-shirts, jewelry, and more. One room also offers free scarves and hats knit by people in the community.

Thank you, Denise at Loom a Hat!

prize5Thrilled does not even come close to describing how happy we are that Nancy has been recognized for her kindness, her incredible generosity towards so many in our Charlottesville community, and her amazing loom-knitting talents by being chosen for the 2014 Loving with Looms Award! At the same time, the entire “Knitting Together” team has been absolutely delighted by the recognition the group as a whole has received, both during the award process but also in the days that have followed. We’ve been honored to receive a number of messages from people from around the country providing words of support and inspiration and asking us what they can do to help us with our ongoing mission.

The attached picture is of the core “Knitting Together” team (from left to right: Anna, Susi, Nancy, and Ruth). We had just opened the box of goodies you sent and, as you can imagine, we had immediately started planning what do with this wonderful infusion of loom-knitting supplies! Now on our agenda are some Valentine’s Day hats and eventually some Easter hats (we’ve just learned how to make bunny ears!) – and of course, in the coming months we’ll be diligently checking the Loom-a-Hat site for any guidance and tips you may have for us. By the way, our hats are off (quite literally!) to the inventor of those yarn sleeves—what an incredible invention they are!

Thank you, again, for honoring all of us in this way–we are truly excited!

Knitting Together was so pleased to donate 40 infant hats to NGA this year for distribution to the Women’s Place at UVa.  We hope everyone in Charlottesville is warm and cozy this winter!  

From Charlottesville to Sweden!

Knitting Together specializes in spreading warmth in Charlottesville. At the same time, we are happy to report that a few of our hats have made their way to patients in Sweden! Unfortunately, cancer knows no boundaries.
