Shandeh and Lestrella, she received the box today! And of course, she loves the stuff! She is also sending you a thank you card! Thank you to both of you for these items!

I shared this thread with my mother since I knew she and I had knit some caps and didn't know what to do with them. She sent them before I got to take a pic!! But she called and told me she had received a nice thank you card. Maybe I will get to take a pic of the next ones!!

My mom has received them and I told her to take pictures of everything she has got so far!





She was very impressed with them, these were the first boxes she had gotten so far. And she has already given some of the items out to people too!

I am so sorry I have not updated in so long! A lot has been happening though, my mom has received so much stuff! She received a beautiful red scarf all the way from Scotland, I sent in my box that had newborn hats, some airline 1st. class amenities packs and she has received at least 6 more boxes! There is even a box heading her way from Hawaii! Rabbitrescuer is sending out her box in the next day or so and I know RaeKnitsnWA is working on her box too. And she just received some beautiful hats from Ellieblue here, 2 of them are Entrelac hats and they have puzzled everyone at the clinic, they have NO idea how they were knit!

The people that work at clinics (there are a total of 5 in the county) are amazed at the fact that there are so many people out there sending in such wonderful items to the clinic. The hats and the newborn items all get put into gift bags along for the moms to choose from when they have their baby's. And the pregnant moms have actually started asking for a "NaAs" meeting, that is the Yurok word for "baby basket" and is the name of the program. They meet with people like my mom and discuss what will be happening to them, their baby and any and all programs they may qualify for if they need help. Sometimes the father comes in too, I remember my mom telling me that one of the fathers was surprised that there was a hat for his unborn baby that he could take home! She told me that when the she first started receiving the hats in the beginning and they were giving the hats to them as they came in.

So the program is starting to work. That is the best part of this, that there are so many people reaching out to members of my tribe, helping them out and letting them know that there are people out there who do care...when I think of that, it gets me teary eyed.

Thank you to any and all of you who have been able to send whatever you can to my mom

Can you share the pattern for the socks? If it is a paid for pattern can you post a link?
