Chuck's Hats for Chemo

I read about Chuck's hats for Chemo in a recent issue of Family Circle Magazine and emailed Ginny (Chuck's wife).

Her story can be found at

She sent me links for chemo caps and I chose the ones I wanted to knit and crochet. My mom is a 15-year, 2-time cancer survivor and had a hard time finding head coverings, other than the hot and itchy wig she wore to work.

Now that our son is in community college, I have more time to pursue things like this. I have been using up yarn that has been left from other projects, as well as buying yarns I think look like fun or that would work up nicely.

I like the Lion Brand Homespun, it's so nice and soft and the colors look very nice in a crocheted chemo cap. I have taken a couple bags to the hospital where my mother received her treatment and I am working on more as my time permits. I stay in contact with Ginny, who is now almost overwhelmed with requests from all over the USA and Canada for patterns/links for Chucks Hats for Chemo.

She is really the one who should be recognized for her charity work for chemo patients. I'm just one of her "followers".
