My friends and I are crocheting and knitting in the name of charity. We’re making and donating hats and amigurumi for and to children and teens at the Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Because my depression has reared its head this year and wreaked all kinds of havoc, my bishop (similar to ministers and other clergymen) challenged me to make and donate at least 12 hats by the end of the year. He knew I was crafting in the name of self-care and challenge me to take that self-care one step further.

I’ve already talked to Primary Children’s Hospital and they need teen hats the most. And, their website says they’re always in need of crocheted/knitted stuffed toys for the kids. I decided to involve my knitting/crocheting buddies, Kami and Hava, because the more of us crocheting and knitting, the more we can donate, right?! Well that was my thinking anyway. 😉 Corey and I are providing the yarn and Kami and Hava are helping me make hats and amigurumi. Now we’re going to donate 12 hats and 12 amigurumi.

We already have six hats and two amigurumi made. 🧶
