Chemo Cap/Anything Hand-Knit Project for Mason's Mom - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
Hi y'all. I don't know if any of you have been keeping up with Mason's post about his mom.

She's getting ready to start a new round of chemotherapy after enduring surgery.

Would anyone be interested in knitting up some caps for her?

Perhaps if we had enough interest, each person could knit one or two.

Thoughts?

I've never organized anything like this, so I'm open to suggestions.

I'd be happy to knit up a couple. Did you have a specific pattern in mind? There is a pattern on Lion Brans'd website. When do you want them by?

I am totally open to suggestions...

Should we all do the same? I think that people have different knitting skills...so I don't think it would matter if we made the same pattern.

I don't even know what kind of yarn is best. I need to do some research.

Oh, and as far as when to get them in by? Hmmm...I figured we'd see who signs up and go from there. Sorry...this is a work in progress...

I'll pm Mason as soon as we have firmer plans and see how he wants to do this. He doesn't know I'm organizing it, but I did ask if he thought she might like some extra caps. We might say, let's get them sent to him by such-and-such date and send them directly to her (or him), according to what he prefers. Or, he might prefer only one person have his address (say me) and I send them out to him.

We'll figure it out.

I was just thinking about something to do for Mason and his mom when I saw this post. I'm not a very fast knitter though due to work and still having a teen in the house but I know I could definitely get at least 1 out

That's perfect! I think we all have grown to love Mason and want to do something. That's what this is about. Anything anyone wants and can do will be appreciated.

I'm game and if I have enough fiber left I may do it from my hand spun stash. and I have your address so I can mail the hat to you if that is what the plan is.

I was looking at those head hugger patterns last night when we were first discussing this project. Those look pretty good!
