Relay for Life washcloths
I'm posting this here as well since it is charity knitting. I'm going to be making these washcloths for my gifts for my survivors at the american cancer society-relay for life in my area and I'm just starting them now...I was just wondering if there was anyone who would want to help me with this since I need to make 50 by june 4. I'm planning on doing them in purple since that's the color for relay, but red, white or blue would work as well and since finishing one and looking at colors any color will work except maybe pink since that's mostly associated with breast cancer and I don't want to lean one way or the other since the survivors are from all types of cancer. If any of you would like to help out even if it's just making a few that would be extremely helpful. here's the pattern and contact me if this is something you are interested in.

I will try the pattern this weekend and let you know. My skills are pretty basic but I am willing to try. I am surprised more people have not stepped up to help. I guess they are busy. This seems like an easy enough pattern.

lol yes its an extremely easy pattern esp since my skills are very new as well I started knitting only about a month and half ago. I have finished one and with only doing it after work it took me about 2 days...but thats with only like an hour or two of knitting a day...i'm hoping by this weekend to have at least 5 done I'm into the 2nd one...I'm also guessing people have a lot on their plates right now but I'm still hopeful of getting some more helpers since these are all going to be going to cancer survivors/patients to help them wash away cancer.

I guess it means alot to those of us who have a personal connection to a survivor or victim. My mom survived breast cancer diagnosed at stage five. It is the least I can do.

wow thats amazing major for coming back from stage 5. I had my committee meeting last night for relay and showed them the finished one and they were all amazed at how perfect the design is. I figure giving up my time and some yarn is the least I can do for what survivors go through
