Saturday night I finished threading in the last loose ends and thought about how this could be of some comfort to its new owner.
My best friend's mother what recently diagnosed with a Grade 3 aggressive invasive cancer.... and before we knew it, she had undergoed surgery followed up by several rounds of chemo.
Being so far away I wanted to send her something to show her that I cared and was thinking of her.
I needed something that would be useful, which is when this hat came to mind
Thinking about her sensitive skin, I knitted this using Rowans Organic Cotton/Wool, and size large to make a loose soft hat band. The colour is to match her amazing blue eyes.
I can honestly say, that love went into every stitch....
as it took me a lot longer than most hats would, and there were a lot of cables involved. But the thought that receiving this may just brighten her day a wee bit, spurred me on.
