Proof of Life

Giant Fuzzy Mushroom Goodness

Chemo Cap One is completed. I followed the free Berroco pattern (link in sidebar) and used the recommended yarn and needles and everything. It ended up a bit large, but my family tends to be big-headed. That's "big". With a "B", OK? The Mr. likes to call it GiantEggBrain Syndrome. We're like those guys from the first Star Trek episode. But our forehead veins only pulse when we're angry.

I'd like to make her some more, more interesting caps to wear throughout the winter. Any ideas? I'll post links as I find them.


  • There is a really great hat called Shedir in the Knitty Breast Cancer Awarness mini-issue. If you click the link it opens a PDF file with all the patterns. This hat is made from 1 skein of Rowan Calmer and I think it would be wonderfully soft.

  • elle, thank you so much for the tip! I've always wanted to try something in Calmer, but didn't want to invest in a whole sweater's worth.

    This hat is next on my list of DarkityMa projects, thanks again!

    Common Breast Cancer Myths

    The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

    Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

    Third is that it is solely hereditary

    The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

    Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

    Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
