[color=darkblue][/color] Hi, I have always been a novice knitter and recently restarted again after about 20 years. I started because I had colon cancer and after my surgery my home health nurse started talking about the socks she was knitting and I got the [size=6][color=blue]“Need to Knit.”[/color][/size] (I was very fortunate, my cancer had not spread and I needed no chemo or radiation. HOORAY!!!)
I know that a lot of people are knitting pink which is wonderful. But many of us are colon, ovarian, lung, prostate, etc cancer patients. Each cancer has one or sometimes 2 colors associated with it (Please see http://www.womanmatters.com/cancer_awareness_colors.htm or
http://www.chemoangels.com/colors.htm) for colors.
Although this is not the ususal knit along I would like to start a knit along for cancer patients. We could chose a cancer color that has meaning for us and knit chemo caps, scarves, socks, sweaters or whatever a cancer patient would find helpful. We could donate them to a local cancer center or organization. We could start after the holidays.
Well, what do ya’ll think?
Does anyone know of any patterns for easy chemo caps?
