SearsCaps made and donated by Newport Academy Drug and Alcohol BOYS Substance abuse house in Orange California. Christine and her volunteers teach young adults in drug rehab centers the art of knit and crochet. “We are helping to keep the patient’s minds off of drugs and hands busy helping others, all the while giving back in a powerful way and learning a fun skill.”

As the Founder of Knots of Love, stories like this are truly gratifying. In tears....happy, humble tears, as I type. Christine: When I saw you at the Knitting/Knotting in Public event in Costa Mesa earlier this month, I shared the story of my best friend, Linda, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the end of 2013. As soon as I knew she would be having chemotherapy I started knitting caps for her and sent a couple to her house in Glendale. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to tolerate the chemo treatments very well and declined further measures on February 24. On March 15 she passed away. After she was gone, her daughter found the caps and passed them along to her daughters, Linda’s granddaughters. They were so happy to have them knowing their grandma’s best friend made them. So you see, Knots of Love brings joy and love in many ways. Bless you for all you do for Knots of Love! Bette ...
