A Stack of Caps

November 27, 2007

A Stack of Caps, originally uploaded by DawnsRays.


“Well finally,” you say, “some knitting.” Yes, yes, I know it has been a couple of weeks but really, I have other things in my life to. Don’t be so shocked. This is a stack of caps that are on there way to California to join up with other caps to be sent off to Colorado for some special teens to enjoy. In total: 14! (Knitzilla’s goal is for 24 by the end of Dec.-Ha!)

I have been sending hats to the Rad Bad Beanie Project for, well this makes 3 years now. I love it! It makes me feel so good to know that the hats I make will have a home (at least for 1 season) with some really cool kid that needs a break.

I encourage all of you to make a contribution to any charity you like and if you want to try a new one or can’t think of a charity then I urge you to give the RBB Project a look see. Check your FO bag. Is there a hat in there that is too small, to big, not a fiber you are crazy about? or how about this, you look into your stash bin and see all the odd balls that have been left over from past projects. Just a little yarn, not enough for any one thing. String them together, get stripe happy. Make a unique toque. Try a new hat pattern. Try an old, tried and true hat pattern. Whatever. . . you knit, it’s what you do, so why not make it count for something bigger than yourself. Make a gift that you know someone will appreciate. It warms the heart.

Okay, enough said. Have a great day!! Peace~ Dawn  Rad Bad Beanies Project   


A Day for PEACE

October 8, 2007

Mugo gives us a link to help better understand the crisis in Burma. If you are so inclined, please click the link and go to the page she has marked and read it for a better understanding.

We are in such need of peace in this world. Lets start the week out right. Do your part and be conscious of moments today when you can bestow peace in a situation instead of conflict. When you can be harmonius instead of chaotic. When you can act with compassion and from a place of non judgement. If just for one day, be fully aware.
Peace~ Dawn

Tiny Bird of Joy that was caught in our garage. It was trapped behind a pair of sheer curtains and my son gently cupped it in his hands and we took a quick photo opp and then released it out into the the yard. It flew off into the pine trees happy for its returned freedom and able to continue to spread its Joy.

P.S– I had a fantastic, relaxing weekend!


Do Some Good

Please follow this link to Mind of Winter and read. The most important continent is below the hat photos. If you are able or have the inclination, please please do this little thing to help this family. Here is the link to the original post at Stitch Marker. Thanks for indulging me. Peace~ DAWN

totally off the topic: why the hell are my links at the bottom all of a sudden. WTF! Whatever, let it go, Dawn. . . let it go.
