A few months ago I told you about my friend Stefanie who lost her battle with cancer. It still totally sucks, and I’m not alone in feeling this way of course. Almost every knit night we’ve had since she died someone brings up Stefanie, and we all smile and raise a glass and try not to cry.
Without having any other outlet for this sadness, we turn to knitting! Just like we turned to her knitting when she died.
For the next month I’ll be collection knit hats to make a donation to Gilda’s Club Chicago in Stefanie’s name. Our knitting group will be working on them, and whether or not you are in Chicago or around the country, any donation of your time and knitting skills will help us bring some hand knit warmth to women battling cancer, just like Stefanie was.
We will be setting up a donation drop off at Gilda’s Club after March 14th, so please have your hat to me before then. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I can send you my address or coordinate a drop off time with you.
You can share and comment on the facebook group event for this drive, and share the word that way as well!
Thank you so much for your interest in helping this small but heartfelt hat drive! I’ll be sure to share hat pictures as I get them. I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
