Cancer Sucks; You Can Help

The other day I mentioned how I was asked to crochet hats to sell after someone had seen the work I did for another blogger.  I was flattered and I stated that I'd work on a few.  I did.  Three in fact. 

Each one was done in the memory of my Aunt Josephine who died of cancer this weekend.  I'm selling them to donate money to the American Cancer Society.  The cost is $35 each (includes shipping w/in US).  Please contact me if you're interested and state which one you'd like.  First come, first serve.

CLICK ONTO THE PICTURES TO ENLARGE:


Gigi Jolie
: has the finest (smallest) stitches of the three hats shown here, but is created from the same pattern concept.  Washing instructions are to hand wash and lay flat to dry; do not spin/wring.  The designer fiber used is from England, is 100% nylon and incredibly  soft! 

Colors:  Neon pink, orange, green and yellow with white whisper puffs of soft "fur."

Current StatusSOLD!



Marlene Onesince the fiber used was larger than Gigi Jolie, a larger hook was used resulting in a hat that shows off a bit more texture (unfortunately it's hard to see as black does not photograph well).  Washing instructions are to hand wash and lay flat to dry; do not spin/wring.  The designer fiber used is from Italy, is 40% nylon, 35% Merino New Wool, and 25% acrylic -- and it's unbelievably lushious! 

Colors:  Black with hint of hunter green (looks more on the gray side to me) with gold flecks and puffs of black"fur."  Stunning when sunlight dances upon it.

Current Status
SOLD!

 

Marlene Two:  the same line of fiber was used to create this hat as the black/green version listed above.  Since a larger hook was used the end results is a stunning hat with texture (easier to see than the Marlene One hat above). Washing instructions are to hand wash and lay flat to dry; do not spin/wring.  The designer fiber used is from Italy, is 40% nylon, 35% Merino New Wool, and 25% acrylic -- and it's extraordinarily  soft!

Colors:  A variety of oranges mutate throughout the work and combine with gold flecks and puffs of burnt orange/brown "fur".  Stunning when sunlight dances upon it.

Current StatusSOLD!


Buy a hat to give to a loved one battling cancer, or buy one for yourself in memory of a lost friend or family member.  It's all for a good cause.


           In Memory of Aunt Josephine.
