Chemo Hat and a Good Book

 The chemo cap that I mentioned here is finished and ready to send off to our nephew's wife. I hope that this little cap will bless her with comfort and love.


This is a great pattern, which means that it is both pretty and quick! Grab your size 8 needles and some worsted weight--I used "I Love This Yarn"--and get the free pattern at Head Huggers.

Here are a couple of funky owls for her little ones when Mommy gets her pretty hat. These were from my brief owl period when I was making hats and toys. If I ever remember where I found the pattern for these, I will add it later!!
My book beginning quote is from Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. Opening line:
When he emerges from the bathroom she is awake, propped up against the pillows and flicking through travel brochures that were beside his bed.
Sooo, that could go in several directions, couldn't it? Is he going on a trip and doesn't want her to know? Will they be traveling together? Did one or both recently return from a journey? Not exactly compelling, is it? Of course, I must read on! There's not too much to glean at this point other than they must have spent the night together.
And, from page 56:
Rupert's voice broke in. "Look, we're only telling you now because we both care about you. We didn't want you to hear it from someone else. But, you know, life goes on. You must know that. It's been two years, after all."

Beautiful cap, both the color and the design. I'm sure your nephew's wife will appreciate it, especially since you made it for her.
I enjoyed your Book Beginning/Friday 56 post too. The beginning made me curious and I'd definitely keep reading. Your Friday56 choice had me wondering what happened two years ago. Great post!
Here's the link to my Friday post: A GOOD HOME.
