Hello Oyella!
Thank you so much for this beautiful hat, I absolutely love it! The pompom on the top brings me back memories of when I was a child, running around in the snow.

Dear Rose,
I originally picked out the hat because I loved the design but once I read about who made it and I saw the hand written signature I fell in love even more, this brightened my whole day and I want to thank you for your hard work and giving me a lovely hat.
Much Love

Dear Rose,
Thank you so much for the lovely hat! It is gorgeous and has been keeping my head very warm during these cold months here in Connecticut. Il obe the pompon, it reminds me of the hats I used to wear as a child when I would go outside and make snow angels :) I really can't thank you enough for what you do. I feel so honored to wear one of your beautifully knit creations.
Much Love,
P.S. I was a drama student too!

Sweet Oyella,

My son is 8 months old, his auntie bought him one of your gray and white striped beanie's while she was visiting Salida, Colorado. We love it! The hat is so skillfully made, it fits him perfectly, and he looks so cute in it! What a wonderful way to support your children's education. I wish you, and your children all the best!

Thank you!

I bought a hat today (April 18th) and I had no clue what Krochet Kids was. I had tried on several hats, none of which seemed to fit my personality, until I put on the wonderful Edna hat that had your name in it. I tried on a few more to find that you had made each hat that I felt fit me as a person.

The work you do is wonderful. I had felt lost today having not done well in a class, and feeling like I had failed. Buying a hat made by someone who wants her own children to be well educated made me feel like it was okay to fail as long as I got back on my feet, because someone out there cared.

Thank you, so much.
