  1. Posting early. Celebrating two years of my cancer diagnosis today! WTD=+2
  2. I'm updating my score. I used up a skein last night, so my point total is now: WTD=+2!
  3. I''m posting early. Been sick again and just taking it easy tomorrow. WTD=0 I did buy 7 points worth of yarn this week, but then used up 7 points of yarn, so I have a big, fat Zero this week.
  4. I got invited to an event of which they are making caps for cancer patients at the local hospital. They can be knit or crocheted, but they have to be of a very soft yarn. The event is on October 18th and 19th, so I have a little while to get ready. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some soft yarns that are not very expensive, and easy to care for. Also any patterns that you can recommend would be appreciated. I knit and crochet, so either kind of pattern would be great. Thanks, in advance, for your help.
