So, for a while now, I've been knitting some hats for a friend who is currently battling breast cancer.  It brings me so much joy to knit for someone who really enjoys wearing what I've made.  So far I've made some really neat patterns, but one thing I've noticed is that lots of people are looking for modern and sassy chemo hats.  All I'm saying is that just because one is currently kicking cancer in the butt, doesn't mean they can't look sassy and fabulous while doing it! 

Therefore. . . I've decided to start creating my own chemo hat patterns.  I've started on my first one this week.  It has a picot edge 2x2 ribbing and is made out of Knit Picks Gloss DK yarn which has such a gorgeous drape and is soft.

Here's where I am so far: 


I'm going to be adding an intarsia-ish band of breast cancer ribbons.  I'd like to post the pattern here for those of you interested, so look for it soon.
