Chemo Caps

Hi, I would like some help in knitting chemo hats for the Victoria Cancer Clinic and Childrens's Hospital.

Four years ago I had breast cancer and lost my hair during chemotherapy.

I have just learnt how to knit through the Beehive shop in Victoria, British Columbia.

Now that I know how to knit, I thought it would be great to give something back. Because I know what it was like I thought making caps for women and children would be a nice thing to do!

We were introduced to your Fun Fur yarns during our classes. I love the colors and the texture of the yarn. I never thought of using it for caps but after looking on your site it gave me lots of ideas. Children would love the multi colors and they are nice and soft!!

I will gladly make some caps, though I am on disability and was wondering do you or the stores you supply ever donate yarn to people so they can make things like this?

I also thought that once I have knit a few things, I will tackle a nice lap blanket for the chemo room, so that any one sitting through chemo can snuggle up and feel loved.

So, that is my story. I hope you can help or suggest something that will help me accomplish my dream.

Thank you,
