Halfway through the year and I am staying on track! I wasn't sure if I would make it this week.....it's 8 PM on Saturday, but both new hats for this week are finished. I had so many difficulties with a pattern that I ripped it out several times and lost a bunch of time.
Anyway, there are 2 new hats this week! A pattern for at least one of them will be posted tomorrow in a separate post.
This is the first hat - named Pinwheel Panache! Thank you Geri for the name!! This was knit with Louisa Harding's Kashmir Baby, which is lovely yarn, but could be made with any sport weight yarn you have on hand.
The next hat is still unnamed, which is understandable, since it came off my needles about 15 minutes ago! It's a very simple pattern that creates an interesting texture. It's knit using Vanna's Choice, which is a great yarn also.
This week has brought good news for many and not so good news for others. Please everyone keep Nicole in MA in your thoughts and prayers as she battles through yet another highly aggressive round of chemo.
I've sent hats to several people this week and delivered blankets to the local ER as well. Now I will have some free time to try to finish the blanket I'm working on! It's getting there.........slowly, but surely!!
Happy Knitting Everyone!
Remember, all are welcome to join us in some way - we love to see new people and are grateful when more people hear about us. So, spread the word! And, as always, if you or anyone you know is in need of chemo caps, please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to ship some out. If there is a chemo center that is near and dear to your heart and you think they could use some hats, let me know and I will ship a box off to them. This is what we do!!
