Hi all! Y'all probably know that Mason's (Knitting_Guy) mom will be starting another round of chemotherapy soon. I am organizing a project to make her hats or anything knitted (or crocheted, for that matter). I thought it would be something nice we could do for a fellow KH'er.

I'm posting a link to that thread here, in case some of you don't frequent the Charity forum.

Here's the link to the thread: http://knittinghelp.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1107434&postcount=1

No pressure...just didn't want to leave anyone out of the invite.

knitting guy......I understand what you are going through. I actually lost my mother to Lung Cancer in 2004. I had just turned 26 and was 2 months away from my wedding. not an easy time. That's why I started knitting in the first place....to keep my hands and mind busy....and to make lots of hats and blankies and things.
Anything we can do...we will! Keep your chin up!

I haven't lost mine but almost did when she had a triple bypass. It's rough when your mom is in bad shape. I had been with grandparents in that condition and it was so hard but nothing prepared me for seeing my mom like that.

I'm sorry to hear about your mom! My mom was just declared in remission in February. Praying you hear such good news before too long!

Oh I just wanted to state that I don't know how to knit caps,... but then I re-read the post to be sure, and it doesn't say it has to be caps, but I wonder what I could knit... or crochet...
Little strawberries? Don't have the yarn, and much less so, the time.

Is there a deadline to this? I might be tempted to do something,...
