On Sat. Sept. 24th I'm going to help support women cancer patients by knitting a soft, warm hat or scarf. This was started by a cancer survivor who founded www.knitforhercure.com several years ago. Check out her web site for a location near you that will be doing this. You can buy kits that contain yarn, pattern instructions and a gift card for the knitter to sign. 100% of the net profits will go to women's cancer research. My favorite yarn shop in Rocklin, Filati, will donate $10 for every kit sold at the event.
The best part is you get to hang around with knitters, help a good cause and provide a woman with something soft and warm to wear when she's going through treatment. Sounds to me like an ideal way to spend a Saturday.
