Yes, yes, I know this blog is named Holly Marie Knits. The reason there has been precious little knitting though is because I have been flying about all week and have not stopped to take any pics. I have done some knitting. In fact quite a bit, I think.
This yarn here is for a chemo cap, for a lady we know who has cancer. It's a fairly straight forward pattern, quite quick and easy. I actually am just about done with it, I only have to do one more eyelet repeat and then the decreasing for the top. It is found in the book "Knitting For Peace". I originally got this book just for the vest pattern, but it has lots of other patterns as well. And although I don't agree with everything in here, it is a very fascinating book to read through, and it makes me wish I could do more knitting for those in need. Whether it be our troops, orphans, or just someone who needs to know that some cares...well, maybe someday I will be able to do this type of knitting as well. I suppose in one way I am! Making this chemo cap out of this book....hmm, that makes me feel better already!
