Put A Cap On It

This photo is of the last bunch of caps I delivered to the Sioux Hospital here in South Dakota. They make visitations to the home and to the reservation so they are always in need of any and all sizes of caps. You know when you make the little newborn size then change to an adult size it feels really funny. The newborn one takes no time to make and it is so cute and tiny. The adult one you actually have the chance to work in some stripes or ripples or something because of their size. There are so many in need during the winter and this winter has really been a doozy and it's not near over yet. When we get down about our life or that the electric bill is so high, I have to stop and try to put myself in the place of others that don't even have running water or heat of any sort. I sit here playing with my yarn or playing on the computer and I forget how lucky I am to be able to do that. I guess all this mumbling is close to that movie, "It's A Wonderful Life." You don't really know how good you have things until there gone, and you don't know what a difference your little bit of help would make. What it comes down to is, that this winter I am making all the caps I can so maybe my little bit of work might warm someone else. You have a great weekend.


  1. Well I for one think what you do is fantastic. You have a loving, giving heart and that's what the world needs today. I like you think of others who have much less than I do or whose infirmaties are worse than mine and I "pull up my big girl panties and deal with it" LOL I've only got around ten hats done for now and I'm working on a red scarf for Women's heart month. Thank you for sharing your story with us.
