Two Posts, One Day

I have to post this about my friend Erin.  She just started an Etsy shop with the cutest felted clips ever. Grey got to model soem for her today and I wanted to put up a few pics.  Here is her etsy shop, well if I get it to work.    http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5303681

Here are a couple of pics.  These are not on the site yet, but will be in a day or two.

 


Finished Object-Chemo Cap

My mom’s neighbor has had a drastic and sudden bought of leukemia.  That kind of “hmmmmI don’t feel good…hmmmmI feel bad, let’s go to the doctor” and then they don’t let you leave!  Her name is Lisa.  I don’t think I am giving anything away because strangers would have to do a lot of leg work to figure all this out and then why?  Anyway, she’s been very, very ill with the chemo and lost her hair.  Momma said she’s cool about it, but it is getting hot out and the sun is hell in TN, so I knit her a little something that should help with the sun a bit, warm her in the cool evenings and hopefully fill up her heart when she needs it.  I truly tried to think about Lisa with every stitch.  I got most of it done during a four hour wait in an airport on my way home.  I decided to not get upset about the plane or anything and just knit.  I hope that every stitch in that hat points her in the right direction.  Lisa, you go girl! 

Here it is, modeled, by Grey.  It’s a little big on her, but fits me fine and I have close to no hair after the hair was touching my ear episode!
