FO Friday: Chemo Caps and Craziness


Well today I am running around like a mad women.

Tomorrow we are hosting a big Graduation BBQ for my Darling Son.  The laundry basket is filling up with all the odds and ends for a big party. I also have physiotherapy and a Doctors appointment today. The boyz are cleaning the giant BBQ we borrowed, then we go grocery shopping. No knitting for me today. Tomorrow morning, set up at the hall… Bedlam.

What I got done earlier this week!

 Chemo Do-Rag (AKA Scarf) done and delivered.


With a Little Help for My Friend Chemo Cap

7" X 19"  80% Bamboo, 20% Wool

7″ X 19″
80% Bamboo, 20% Wool

A friend is going through Chemotherapy, which inspired this pattern. Some years ago I was in a similar situation and appreciated the many kindnesses of my friends. Please feel free to use this pattern and pass it along. We all need to feel cared for in times of trouble.
