Thinking of Sandy, knitting more chemo caps
I thought of Sandy with every stitch I knit this week. Two chemo hats, for two more people fighting back cancer. My prayers will be with them, too, though I never know their names.
About the hats: the blue one is Boardwalk by Elizabeth Pederson. I knit it in Lion Brand Cotton-Ease. This was left from a sweater project. I'd forgotten how soft it is while knitting. When I run out of leftovers, I will buy more Cotton Ease for chemo hats.
The second hat is Odessa by Grumperina. It is available free at Ravelry. It was knit in Sirdar Silky Look. This is a discontinued yarn. A friend gave a bag of it to me, including a partially knit sweater. I'm using it for hats. It's lighter weight, so I thought this shorter beanie would be a good match for it. Even when it gets warmer, women might like to cover their bald heads.
