Chemo caps.....

My dear friend has cancer and has lost her hair due to the chemo. It's so, so cold here, and her head really gets cold so I've made her some hats. This is just a couple of the one's I've made her. I have some good friends (at making caps for her too. The pattern for this hat can be found at:
It's probably my favorite hat pattern at this point in time.
I have another hat on the needles now, and am doing a pattern of my own on it. If I like the way it turns out, I'll put up a picture with the instructions. :)

Diane Scott and I have decided to start a charity group on the web.
"Threads of Love" is a simple ministry with just one purpose: to use our
talents and materials to provide much needed items to those less-fortunate
than ourselves - afghans, lapghans, quilts, slippers, chemo caps, hats,
gloves, mittens, socks, shawls, scarves, leg warmers, tissue holders,
jewelry, pins, decorations....anything to help to make their lives more
comfortble and to brighten their day by letting them know they are loved.

We will be a low-volume, non-participation mandatory group where you set
your own pace, decide what you want to make and where you want to donate
your projects. You can take your projects to locations of your own
choice......your local rest home/nursing home, shelter for the homeless,
cancer center, orphanage or etc; or you can send them to Wilma or Diane
for dispersal. It's your choice.

We will furnish links for free patterns, will help in doing
searches for special projects and will try to help with any knitting,
crocheting or sewing questions you might have.

Diane and I both have had a burden for this kind of ministry on our
hearts for quite some time, and are just now getting into an
organizational mode. We're just getting this group up and started and
would welcome any suggestions you might have. If you are interested,
please reply to this email and let us know or send a blank email

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks through Him to God the Father. Colossians 3:17
