The YaYas will be all casting on & knitting a pink chemo cap on October 22nd at the Race For the Cure in Jacksonville, Florida. Please join us.
Requirements for this KAL:
1. Think about Breast Cancer. Raise Awarness. Remind your family members to self-check, see a doctor, and GET A MAMMOGRAM. It's the law for your HMO to pay for one mammogram per year. Friday, Oct. 21 is National Mammography Day.
2. Number one is the only requirement.
Post some pictures of your progress, give your cap to a treatment center in your area or send it to headhuggers.org. Sue is a very friendly lady, and will get your cap to people who need it.
Divine Secrets of the Yarn Yarn progress pics from Saturday will be posted here, and cross posted in our blog.
Hey Hildie! Mine too! Most days my house looks like a pepto bismal color scheme or something. Koolbreeze, I'm glad that you can join us in this pink parade.
Speaking of pink, Saturday was our race day. I worked on a cap with pink Debbie Bliss cashmerino yarn, and Melanie sort of worked on a pink cap too. Her husband Nate sported a pink ribbon bandanna. I will have pictures up here very soon, probably tommorow!
I'll be starting a chemo cap on Saturday if I can find the right yarn! Cashmerino is a good choice, no? Very soft, and machine washable?
I'm excited because I offered to do this for someone, and she actually accepted. Not that knitting for a stranger is less valuable or anything...it's just neat to be able to reach out to a specific person, let them choose the pattern, etc. I feel really honored to be doing it. :D
I dont THINK they have it, but there is another LYS within 5 minutes' drive from where we'll be, and they do carry DB....you can make up an excuse & sneak away to buy it if you dont find anything comparable at Chix With Stix...
