Kntting my way through change
Created By: Autumn Bates

I first learned to knit during Summer vacation 2 years ago. It was that fall that my step-mom was diagnosed with cancer. Her diagnosis left us all feeling powerless against a foe that could not be stopped. I knit her first chemo-cap for her just after she started chemotherapy. Her second chemo-cap was made because she liked the first so much but wanted a different color. She went on her last holiday to Germany with her sisters and in every picture she is wearing her favorite hat, parrot blue, vibrant violet, and tropical green. While she was in hospice I was there every day. I knit a hat in turqouise for my nephew and a jester hat in 4 colors for my niece. It was what I could do for others while I helped take care of my step-mom.

When my step-mom passed away I came back into posession of her chemo-caps, including the one she wore while on vacation in Germany. I wear them whenever it is cold out and it helps me feel close to her even though she isn't here anymore.

My knitting is and always will be dedicated to Janet Leigh Bates, November 13, 1953-January 5, 2006.
