This week's knitting

I make a lot of hats. They're pretty quick, and sometimes they give me a chance to try a new yarn without making a huge investment. I donate them to the homeless and to local hospitals for chemo patients. My knitting circle donates a LOT of items. They're a great bunch of ladies.
The other night my husband came home and told me that not one,,, but TWO woman at his workplace have been diagnosed with advanced breast cancer. They are a tight bunch down there and both of these ladies have worked with C for a long long time. He asked me to pick up my needles and get some caps together. The pinkish one is the first time I've knit anything lacy. I love this pattern! It took me a LONG time to master being my first lace project but I think I really have it down now. You can see the pattern HERE
Ya'll will have to endure "The Severed Head of Eric Carr" again. (He's getting kind of beat up. It might be time to replace him!)

This hat is so soft! I had some baby eyelash and some simply soft leftovers and I think it turned out nicely! No pattern, I made it up as I went along.

Oh, you can't get rid of Eric Carr! He cracks me up every time. The hats are beautiful, but I'm sorry to hear that your husband's co-workers may need them. The lacy one is great, you'd never know that was your first lace project. Great job!
