Anyone Done Any Charity Knitting? Interested in Chemo Caps
I thought it would be nice to start doing chemo caps. What do you do, just knit some and take them to the nearest hospital or what?

I would contact the local hospitals first. They all have different rules and would most likely have info and resources for you.

I've knit a lot of charity stuff (sweaters, preemie caps, etc), but only for established charities. Here's some links to check out.
