In Memory of a Dear Friend - May She Be in Total Peace

Sunday I visited a dear friend whom I hoped would have been like the last time I visited her.  Instead she was on her way out of this world.  She didn't speak a word.  Her daughter had some nice instrumental piano music playing for her.  I don't really know if she knew I was there or not - I just can hope she did.  She left us between Monday and Tuesday morning.  In her memory and elevating her soul, I'm sharing some pictures of some of the chemo hats I have made.I must admit I have been distracted a bit and haven't been keeping up with posting my newest items.  I had been more focused on praying for a miracle. 
I did keep myself busy by making more hats and starting a moebius scarf, part of an order from New York and a white scarf for Zvi - hope this one doesn't go missing like the other one with a diamond pattern on it.
Here are the chemo hats I made and sent to Jerusalem.  They are two different sizes so she can choose which on fits her the best.  The first hat sent to her was a bit small - it fits, but slides off in bed.  The second hat I made was a bit bigger, but when I was totally finished it looked like it might be too big.  I decided to make another hat with her in mind hoping one will be the perfect fit!
I also made another hat, but made it more like a snood so someone with long hair could fit all their hair in it or if someone just likes bigger slouchy hats.

Another cable chemo hat - I don't like to make just ribbed chemo hats, especially since so many people cover their heads for religious reasons, I want them to be able to have a variety to choose from.
Here's another chemo hat I made, but more for spring time with lighter weight yarn and a nice spring color.

The more orders I get, the more chemo hats I can make.  I always take part of my profit and put it aside to buy yarn for chemo hats.


  1. So sorry to hear about your friend, may she rest in peace. The chemo hats look like they will cheer up a lot of people. Kol Hakavod.

  2. Those hats are wonderful! Sending you my condolences on the loss of your friend. I love your work!
