A Chemo Cap for Kerrie

My friend Kerrie was recently diagonosed with cancer, and began her chemo last week. She is a vibrant, full-of-life person, who has an incredible gift as a watercolor artist. She is creative and funny, and I wanted to make her something special. I decided on a chemo cap, and chose Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk to make it with.

I found a wonderful pattern on Ravelry, and began the cap last week. I like the eyelets in it, which ended up looking like little hearts. I am really pleased with the way it turned out (despite my hamajang Row 3 which I ended up ripping out and knitting all over again). Because it has been rainy and cold, my flowers are all gone, yet I wanted to find a creative way to photograph the cap before giving it to Kerrie tomorrow.

First, I tried it on Kukui. It didn’t work very well. Talk about baleful looks!

This is a pretty good shot:

Still yet, I wanted something that would show how the cap looks on a head.

The bunny loved it! She wanted to keep it, but when I explained why she couldn’t, she was happy to take it off so that it could hopefully bless a special friend.

    The look on Kukui’s face cracks me up! It’s the same look that my dog gets when you put anything on her, the look of “Now what!?”

    The chemo cap is beautiful and I bet Kerrie’s going to love it. What a wonderful friend you are.

But I love the idea of flowers in the pukas!! Maybe when I give it to her I will put pua in da puka!
