On the Needles

Alrighty then.... Here it is the completed cap. It fits like a childs cap, so i'll have to go back to the drawing board and try making it a little larger. This cap is an eighty stitch cast on. I'll make one with a ninety stitch cast on using the same yarn.

Here is whats on the Needles. Last night I cast on for a chemo cap. I am making the pattern up as I go..hehehe. If all goes well, I'll share this free pattern.

Chemo Caps

Here is a few Chemo Caps for my lovely friend. There is a brown one made out of T-shirt fabric. This one is for wearing to bed or under some of those itchy wool caps. I hope she will like them and "fingers crossed" they fit well.
