Day of Service: Chemo caps delivered!

Check here and here and here for stories and here for a video featuring the Knitters for Obama chemo cap project. The five chemo caps that I knit for the campaign have been delivered to the University of Chicago Medical Center along with all the others collected from around the nation -- over 200 caps in all! More are coming in as knitters wrap up their last-minute contributions.

A big round of applause for Kristen Rengren (retroknit on Ravelry) who organized this project, opened dozens of packages as they arrived, tagged the hats, and delivered the goods. I borrowed her photo that shows the caps she delivered. I know mine are in there somewhere...

ETA: I've removed the embedded video now that most of my regulars have seen it. I don't know about all of you, but I get irritated with music and videos that load themselves every time I go to a page.

found you blog through Ravelry & then realized I already had a link to it! I guess that means I like it twice.

I think the chemo caps are great & I am so happy it look like these kinds of projects will continue.
