Thank you so much for making the hat I purchased! It is so beautiful and very warm! I will pray for you and your family as they go to school and for your plans to open a shop. For they last few years I've wanted to become a teacher in Uganda so deeply and if I follow those dreams of mine I'll hopefully be able to visit your shop! Remember God is good all the time. Best of wishes!

Thank you,

Thank you Akello Janet!
My two boys, both 15 years old picked your hand knit hat out of all the hats in the store to give to me on my birthday. I deliver mail on a small island and it gets very cold here in the winters. Your beautiful hat kept my head warm and dry all day today and I look forward to wearing it for many years. I too am a knitter and I know just how much work goes into making every single hat.
I will look for your name every time I buy a Krochet Kids hat!

My sisters gave me a hat knit by you for my birthday. It is beautiful and I love it!
I will think of you when I wear it, which is often as I live in Minnesota where it is very cold and snowy!
You are very talented - I wish you success and happiness and hope that all of your dreams come true!
