I've been totally lazy today, so I'm going to post my FO and outfits in the same post. :)

My FO is a chemo cap for my Slytherin nest-mate's step-mom. She posted on Mother's Day that her step-mom had just cut off all her hair after beginning cancer treatment, which made me think of my mom, who once also had cancer. She wore wigs and scarves. If I had been old enough and known how to knit, I would have knit her chemo caps, so I thought I'd send my nest-mate's step-mom chemo caps I couldn't make for my mom. I think my mom would be happy to see me do it (and help!) if she were still here. :)

I made two, the second with a different pattern, but it was really small, so I think it will stay here and be a baby hat. I made both out of Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK and they are heavenly! Perfect for hairless heads. I hope this one isn't too small. It fit John's head, which I figure is pretty average (mine's giant). The pattern is Lace-Edged Women's Hat, which my friend was knitting for her mom last week and I decided to copy her because it was so pretty. :) The one now designated a baby hat is similar pattern: Race for Life 2009 Chemo Cap. Make the bigger size for an adult!

My outfits have been lack-luster, but I'm not in my pjs or a t-shirt and shorts, so I think I'm winning. Here are outfits 4 and 6. 5 wasn't worth a picture and it was basically 4 with jeans and a blazer.

top and shorts: Banana Republic; shoes: Blowfish

top: ?; cardi: Banana Republic; jeans: Gap; shoes: Blowfish; shawl: handknit!

I bet you missed that wall, eh? ;) I still have two or three pieces to pick out....Hmmm....


  1. I was working on the Lace-Edged Women's Hat last night for MY mom! You were missed!

    1. Well, naturally, you are the friend I mean! :D

  2. How sweet you are! I'm sure it will be much appreciated and you'll be making that challenge just a little bit easier. I'm so excited to see you wearing something you knit! The shawl makes the outfit more dressy!


Thank you for reading and commenting! I love to hear what's on your mind!
