to all who commented or wrote personally to send me love and prayers. It means so much - truly.
I am doing well and remembering that I can only do one thing at a time and THAT'S OK.
Now on to hats.
Earlier this summer my nephew Riley was diagnosed with Leukemia. He is 5 years old. He's been going through Chemo and as such has lost his hair.
I am participating in a team project over on Ravelry called Nerd Wars (geekery and knitting fun combined). As part of the challenge I have committed to making 12 hats for Riley and his friends going through Chemo.
I have also committed to requesting donations from my knitting friends for at least 8 more hats. I'd love for all of you the help me blow that number out of the water.
The deadline of having the hats to me is 12/15/2011
The hats need to be kid sized (any pattern - the sillier the better) and made of very soft MACHINE WASHABLE yarn.
IMPORTANT: These hat must come from healthy, non-smoking homes. These children are immuno-compromised and must be protected from all germs and contaminates; what might be the sniffles to you is life-threatening to them.
Please leave me a comment or email me directly for more information and most of all Go Make Some Hats!
Thanks again guys - you ARE the best!
I'll keep you posted!
