FO: Chapeau Marnier

Another cloche - I love this little pattern! It only takes a few hours to knit and is adorably retro. Chapeau Marnier knit in Luster Sheen

More Caps

This one is the Swirl Hat. I knit it in Serenity Garden Yarn since it is a chemo cap and needs to be very soft.

I really like how the pattern decreases turned out.

Then there is the Rolled Brim Eyelet Cap knit from Baby Bee cotton/acrylic blend.

But my favorite is the Chapeau Marnier knit with Micro Spun. I will knit this again!

Chemo Cap

My friend was just diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer and will undergo aggressive treatment to combat this horrible disease. Please go to the link and read or research this yourselves. It is not the normal type found with a lump and it is very aggressive.

Here is the first of many chemo caps for her.

The pattern is from Head Huggers and is #18 - Lace Edged Womens Hat. I used some cotton blend that was in my stash.

If you are of the mind to, please include her in your prayers.

On a more uplifting note, I am headed to NY to spend some time with Mom. She is doing remarkably well (for being 89) and I look forward to our time together.

I hope you have a wonderful week ~
