Knitted Chemo Caps

I want to use this opportunity to "thank you" so much for your Free Pattern for the Knitted Chemo Cap!

This is the first time I have used the "Fancy Fur" and it took some getting used to! My sister has just finished 6 months of chemo treatment and, of course, lost her hair.

The moment I printed out your pattern and got the Fancy Fur, I was on my way!!! The first one was "Rainbow Red" and she was just delighted with it! She wore it on her trip to see her family in Montana and they just raved about it!

Now she has a Brilliant Blue one and a Bold Black one!!! No matter where she goes, someone asks her about "her hat" and where she got it!!! I am making more knitted chemo caps to take to the cancer center here in Sioux City as a gift. Perhaps they will make someone's Christmas a little brighter!!!

Although this is a small individual project, I wanted very much to let you know how much we appreciate your newsletter and patterns!

Thanks - Dianne
