A dear friend of ours is battling cancer of the pharynx. His two daughters go to school with two of ours and are all good friends. As a special tribute to his battle, I knit him a little hat with a yellow stripe to signify his survival. He is done with his chemo now and over half way through his radiation.....he has an amazing spirit and a wonderful family that are all helping him win! Hat's off to you, John :D

The pattern I used was Jared Flood's "Turn a Square". Yarn is Needful Yarns "London Tweed" and the yellow stripe was Elann's Peruvian Highland Wool in "Daffodil". The Tweed is super soft and fluffy and I think it would be fine to wear next to his skin. I love the flecks of color in the yarn too!


  1. That is so sweet of you, Meg. And also that was a sweet thing to make a hat for your friend.

    You are such an inspiration to me. Once I get my life scheduled better (that's one of my shortcomings on which I'm correcting at this point in my life) and this house settled, I'm going to pursue either crocheting or knitting like I talked about. I SO enjoy your pictures. Keep up the good work.

  2. Thanks so much Tara! Knitting is so relaxing; you will love it :D I crochet too, but not as avidly. It is a bit quicker too!
