Special Knit for a Cause

October is breast cancer awareness month. In honor of this, and in the hopes of making more people aware of early detection we will be having a special Knit for a Cause this Sunday, at Elk Grove Park, at the Elk Grove's Annual Giant Pumpkin and Harvest Festival. Please feel free to bring your US #9 16 inch circulars as well as #9 Double Points and help create a gift of love, a gift of your time, and a gift of warmth to someone going through the rigors of chemotherapy or radiation.

It has been our honor to take part in this special Cause. We've got a great team of regular knitters and crocheters that churn out hats faster than I can say "Bob's my Uncle" We would love for more people to join us, either through knitting, crocheting, or even donating some of your soft warm stash. Since the weather is turning, and it seems like it's going to be a doozy of a winter, the need will be even greater for soft warm hats. Lately, we've been doing more hats for men. Apparently, there is a shortage of hats for manly, man hats. If it touches your heart, we've got a place for you at this table.

When going to the Harvest Festival, we will be right next to the News 10 booth, so we'll be easy to spot. Look for Pink and Green, and wear something pink to help bring awareness to Breast Cancer.

Knit On!!!

I have a question on the Safari friends pattern, I can't seem to create the right "Tembo" the elaphant ear. The ear that I have created has turned out to look as if it is a rabbit ear. I know you put the pearl side put, but it doesn't seem to lay flat. We had purchased the Safari Friends pattern 11/06/07 at 12:25 pm. Since, I have knit the body, legs, arms, and trunk. The ears have troubled me so.

Thank you ever so much,

Happy Customer

Does the yarn have to be machine washable for the chemo hats? A superwash or an acrylic blend?
