Dear Akech,
I think you made my hat- the signature is a little faded, and all I could definitely make out was the "Ake-" of the first name. I absolutely adore this hat! It's cute and snuggly, and now my mother wants a red one! Thank you for the time and love you put into my hat!
Warm wishes,
Chriss
PS: I bought the Bella in slate.

Hello Sunday, my six year old daughter saw one of your hats today in a local store - tried it on (she looked super cute in it) and fell in love with it. Your work is amazing, the style is fantastic and the thread you use to make the hat is soft and perfect for a six year old girl. Thank you for making this hat for her - whenever she puts it on we will think of you! Keep up the great work!
