I have a friend who has cancer, and is having to have chemo...

So I decided to make her a couple of things to cheer her up (actually they are going to be part of a larger collection of gifts that a group of us are putting together for her).

First off, I made her the Ameila Earhart aviator cap out of some Bernat Cashmere blend yarn.  It is gorgeously soft, and as it only contains 5% cashmere it hopefully won't irritate her scalp too much

And another view of it from the front:

And then I knitted her a Hallowig out of some bright green acrylic I had in the stash:

I am not necessarily expecting her to wear the Hallowig, but I know that it will make her laugh, which can only be a good thing!  Actually, she has a rather wacky sense of humour, so she might actually wear it anyway!

I have also made a needlefelted necklace that is going in the same parcel for her....

Very cute hat, and kick-arse wig!  Both are very well made.  I hope things go well for your friend; it sucks to watch loved ones in chemo. Sad

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
