summery hats.

Here is a set of hats I made for a friend:



Good news is she caught her breast cancer really really early through her own self-exams. A mamogram didn't pick it up even. They had to do an mri on her to find it. Crazy! Bad news is her doctor still wanted her to go through chemo for preventative reasons. So thats why I made her the hats.

Not really related, but could be, here is a link to a list of natural, creative, mostly non toxic cleaning alternatives. Please be warned, cheesy elevator music will play if you go there. [via readymade]

The hats are beautiful! I'm sure they're healing, too. So sorry to hear about your friend, though it sounds like she'll be fine. Thank goodness!

nothing like a handknit to cheer the soul...

and awesome that she identified something and is getting it taken care of. Reminds me that we all need to be religious about those self exams.

Beautiful hats! And I'm very curious what you're making with the ribbons in the last post. Also, I was looking around for the art you showed a while back, of the two women connected by knitting -- can you send me a link to it? Was that what you showed in the group show in Lebanon? How many did you do and do you have any left? (questions questions!)

How sweet of you, Shoofly.
I hope she recovers from the treatment.

It must be such a relief for you now that your folks and relatives have reunited with you. Thank god.

I hope the war will end right now. You take care and all the best for your show. :) Love those ribbons.
