chemo cap for Harlot appearance at Knitch

Just a quick blog before I have to run off to work and do the schedule.
I saw on the Knitch Knitters group on Ravelry that chemo caps were being requested for this trip of the Harlot, so I did a little pattern searching and grabbed some Bernat Softee Chunky and some other bernat yarn I had lying around and crocheted up this chemo cap yesterday evening. I improvised some since I've never been known to stick 100% to a pattern. If I had it to do over again, I would crochet it in the round to avoid the seaming (I'm not the greatest crochet seamer). I got the pattern off of www.headhuggers.org . There are lots of knit and crochet patterns on there if anybody is looking for one. I may try to squeeze in another hat before Sunday but I'm going to be pretty busy the next few days so we'll see. At least I'll have one done before The Harlot. I do feel like such an incredible cad, though, because until I did a little more Knitch research, I did not realize that one of their employees had passed away from cancer. I remember seeing her at Knitch and I remember how upbeat and nice she was. It amazes me that she had such a positive energy coming from her when she was in the last couple months of her life.

What?!?! Who was that??? Nice cap - I swear I'm working on mine. Maybe I will post a picture in progress today!

Ann was the employee who died. I believe she was the lady with the short gray hair, glasses, very friendly. Kim at Knitch would have to be the one to confirm that and make sure that I'm thinking of the right person.
