Hats for Kim
I have a pal on a mommy board. This board has been together since we were pregnant with our babies due October 1999. Yes, our babies are nearly 7 1/2 now! Well, this one pal has been battling breast cancer for over a year now. She is brave and strong and amazing.
She recently started another treatment for her cancer which could be causing her hair to fall out again. So, I decided she needed a couple new hats in some springy colors. The one on the right is a basic hat pattern, knit with a very soft fuzzy Yarn Bee yarn. The one on the left is shedir, from Knitty, knit with Lion Brand microspun.
Here's a picture of the top of shedir. It makes a pattern like a quaker star. So pretty!
And a fuzzy picture of the cables.
I hope you can get some use out of them, Kim! I knitted lots of good thoughts and positive vibes into them for you.
