Woohoo!  I finalllly got a digital camera so I can post my stuff!  I s'pose it's kind of a bummer first post, but here it is...  My aunt is going through breast cancer treatment and lost her hair almost immediately.  Loving my aunt immensely and being the fiendish knitter that I am, something had to be done.  I was generally unimpressed with the chemo cap pattern options out there until I came across a knitty breast cancer awareness special edition with this hat in it.  The detail isn't terribly apparent from the pic, but their's a fab almost aran-y cable design.  I'm proud of this one...  If you find yourself in the market for such a cap, check out this link and scroll down to Shedir, it's a nice change from the norm.  Thanks for looking!

You have picture of this cap to see?  Which knitty cap is it?

Yikes!  The whole picture thing has been more of a struggle than I anticipated!  Since I'm a new poster I can't put up the actual pic yet, but I put in a link for the picture and the pattern both.  Thanks!

That's a beautiful cap, Silversiamese!  I'll bet your aunt loves it.  Hope she's well very soon.

I LOVE the shedir pattern, haven't made it yet because I still need to acquire the skills to do so.  I wish you had a close up or bigger picture. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the color (it is my favorite color).  What yarn did you use?

I used Plassard Tahiti yarn, one skein was more than enough.  The color selection at my LYS was limited but I, too, was happy with this colorway.  And you should totally try Shadir, I'll bet you could do it just fine.  It's not as difficult as it appears, it's more tedious than anything.  Challenge yourself!
