Yarn, Kids and Horses

Just writings about life as a mom, including my 18 year old daughter who is bipolar; our horses and my love of all things yarn and knitting, especially socks!

Here is a hat I test knit for Wendy Neal. It is a beautiful hat and the reason behind its creation is touching. Here is what she writes.

“Eleanor is a beautiful 2 1/2 year old girl, whose parents discovered she had cancer on 1/8/10. The next day Eleanor underwent surgery to remove her kidney which was a solid 6” tumor, a cancer known as Wilms tumor. Starting the third week of January 2010, Eleanor will be receiving chemo treatments for the next 8 months in hopes of shrinking masses present on her lungs. All proceeds from this pattern will go directly to her family to help with medical and living expenses.”

You can find the pattern here

Please consider purchasing this pattern or making a donation to Eleanor's fund. Thanks so much!
