A Hat for Ken

You have probably figured out by now that I love to knit hats. If someone needs a hat, I am your girl. Kathy mentioned that Ken's knit hats were wearing out. I was on the job and knit one up. I really like this pattern. It is called "A Hat Fit for a Boyfriend". It has some great decreases on the crown and fits great. It is one on my "go to" hats now.

Another Cat Hat

Cara's friend requested a cat hat. I thought it would be fun to make one black and white. When I was growing up, my sister had two cats named Puff I and Puff II. Black and white cats always remind me of our Puffs.

The College Experience Has Begun

Robyn is off to college. She drove up to Tech on Friday and we followed with the rest of the stuff on Saturday. I don't remember the dorm rooms being this small back in the day, but I guess they were and I blanked out on that. Robyn had not met her roommate before arriving at the dorm, but the talked several times online and they sound like they will be a good match. Cyrus was hanging out with Robyn and helped us move her things into her room. I was grateful for that.

I was grateful I was able to go at all. My Oncologist was able to adjust my chemo schedule so I would feel well enough to make the trip. They moved it up 5 days. Since I didn't have the full three weeks between treatments, I got the lovely side effect of hand and foot disease and had some blisters on my hands and heels. A prescription of a steroid cream made it bearable and off I went. Blasted chemo interrupting my fun...
