In Need of Knitted Love

Dear Fellow Yarnies,

My 34 year old niece, just found out she has cancer. She started chemo this week. She is a single mom to a 13 year old boy. She went to the ER thinking she was having accute appendicistis, they discovered a tumor. After the tests they found colon cancer and cancer in her ovaries.

She lives 8 hours away, and even though she is near her brothers and her mom, I want to send her some knitting love. I am knitting up chemo caps in fun colors to cheer her up.

I'd to ask if any of you  have the time if you would knit or crochet one for her. I want to put together a box of knitting love to send to her.

If you would like to donate a cap or some other knitting love, please let me know.

Things that Make You Go. . . What the. . . ?

There things in life that just make you shake your head sometimes. But this past week as been a perfect example.

It clearly was not a good week to be a celebrity. We said good-bye to David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Dan Haggerty,  Celine Dion lost her husband and her brother,  Natalie Cole, Lemmy.

This has been a seriously rough time recently for Hollywood and the music industry.

On a lighter note, YouTube is once again filled with things make you question humanity as a whole, seriously just because you have a cell phone with a camera (and I know a few people still using flip phones with no camera) doesn't mean you should post pictures of a family member attempting to do something like sing, dance, play an instrument, or string a coherent sentence together. It was a bad week for vid clips, as well.

At least, the debates are providing some comic relief in the midst of all this insanity.

Just in case you missed it:
