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.
