She doesn't have cancer, she's a Buddhist nun, shaved head voluntarily (well, it's required in this order of Theravadin nuns). She can only wear brown.
Yesterday we were visiting, and she was very shivery, kept trying to pull a shawl up over her head.
So I decided to knit her up a quick hat, on circs....in stockinette so it's fast. I cast on 88 stitches, cuz she has a small head. This is how much I got done so far: I have no pattern, will just knit a tube and cast off. I'm using Red Heart Bamboo wool. It's soft and ok to work with, but doesn't have much of a twist to it, so each stitch tends to split when knitting it.
