A Special Hat for a Special Person

My next door neighbor, Dolores Malloy, died yesterday morning at around 2:30 a.m. Dolores has been suffering with cancer for about 4 yrs. She went through the chemo and was into the radiation when things started going really bad.

I knitted a black hat with fun fur and another yarn and gave it to her in the early part of December as I did not know how long she would live.

I wanted her to have this hat as not only was it really pretty but also practical. Dolores lost a lot of hair previously.

I did not want to wait until Christmas and, looking back, I am glad that I did this. I wanted to treat her extra special. She was most worth it.

Tomorrow is her memorial service at 11 a.m.
