Chemo caps

Happy New Year. Now the holidays are over. I got cleaned out. All hats, mitts, dishcloths and scarves. Gone. I don't owe any Christmas presents. So that's good.
A good time to assess the stash, find out you have plenty and get knitting. Starting with chemo caps and THE baby blanket. Am I the only one who always has a baby blanket going?
Madame President has thrown down a challenge. 100 chemo caps by Knit Michigan. Long pause. I say we can do it. We knitted and donated 125 scarves in 2007. The Knit Michigan website states 200 chemo caps were donated last year. Our goal is half of that. We are awesome.
We have a need for more volunteers to work the Learn to Knit Room. You may not have to teach anyone a thing, it could just be a chance to sit and knit. Go to market. Shop. Have lunch. Spend the day with knitters, knitting.
If you have questions about your chemo cap or a pattern to share, Tuesday Jan 8, will be our last guild meeting before Knit Michigan. I will still be collecting scarves for SOS. I have knit 5. See you soon, Judith
