Awkward title, I was aiming for clever. I don’t have Steve Cotton’s talent for headlines, maybe he subcontracts? Back to the subject at hand, I crochet hats. Seems odd since I live in the land of heat and humidity. It’s the IWC’s fault. Several years ago, a couple of the ladies started visiting the kids in the Children’s Cancer Unit at the O’Haran hospital. We used to get a lot of English speaking kids from Belize receiving treatment and one of the Doctors asked his mom if any of her English speaking friends wanted to visit. From this simple request the Cancer Kids project grew. There are fewer Belizan children but that is due to politics not to any decrease in the incidence of childhood cancer. However, this post is about the hats, and also a reminder that there are still raffle tickets available for the Hugs and Kisses Afghan.
In between my own projects, I crochet hats for the kids. Luckily, I am not the only person who makes hats, because while I am good about making them, I seem to stockpile quite a bit before I drop them off. Today, I gathered up 32 hats and popped them into the washing machine to prepare to send them off.
I think I’ve made around 200 hats since I started doing this, it’s amazing what you can do, just a little bit at a time. Here’s the latest batch.
