Loving with Looms Award 2013
I am happy to announce the First Annual Loving with Looms Award. Join me in honoring someone who has used this awesome art to express their love and care for others and their plight in life. The award, along with a $50.00 Amazon Gift Certificate is to be presented to a humanitarian loom knitter. Too often people dig into their own resources to knit their treasures with no thought to personal cost or gain. I just want to give them a little bit of love and a small tangible reward.
Hey, don’t be so humble, nominate yourself and use this opportunity to introduce others to your favorite charity. Some of us would love to know where we can send our loom knitted projects. We can also make a donation in your name to the charity instead of the Amazon Gift Certificate.
If you can not think of a single person to nominate would you please consider voting for my nominee listed below.
1. The Nominee must be an Individual. Not a Website, Organization or Group.

Pali along with a group of friends loom knits hats for cancer patients. She always writes for the groups blog, Facebook page and Pinterest. I don’t know how she has enough hours in the day considering that she is a wife and mom. Please visit the site and get to know the great humanitarian.
The About Us Page says: With this blog, we strive to raise awareness about Cancer, babies in the NICU and a few other causes that are dear to our hearts. We have always struggled with finding a way to help others, and this was the obvious answer for us, having been so affected by this horrible disease, Cancer We hope that the hats we create impact the recipients and their families to show people really do care. We started this effort and blog in the Spring of 2012 and have grown immensely with our awareness, skills and spiritually. It feels great to do our little part in providing hope to those that are struggling with some pretty heavy issues. We actively pursue new recruits and can teach just about anyone how to loom knit a cute hat. By no means do we think of ourselves as “crafty” or “artistic”, at all, but this form of knitting allows for anyone to hand create a beautiful hat. Please feel free to comment on our posts or contact us. ~Pali & Vanessa
