It's only a few weeks until the start of October, which is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so time to recruit some of you to join in our venture at Fibers, the LYS where I work and teach. I will be offering a basic hat class on Saturday, October 4th from 2-4 PM, to launch a month-long Chemo Cap Knitalong, and want to encourage my Blogland friends to join in the effort. While you are welcome to come to Grass Valley one of the Saturday afternoons in October, and sit around and knit a hat with us, you can also just stay right where you are and make one, or three, or five.... then, look around in your local community and decide where to donate it.
I would like to ask all of you to spread the word, design a button, let me know your results, etc., and will be putting together a blog-style contest (and accepting donations for said contest), with each hat you make equaling a ticket into the drawing to be held at the end of October... all you have to do is send me a message, or link to a photo on your blog or Ravelry site, etc. as you finish each hat!
So, dig through your stash this weekend, visit the Berroco website for a few nice Chinchilla patterns, and comment to let me konw you're in!
Have a great weekend.
