Caps for Chemo Donation Drive

chemo

Need to clear out some of your old stash and make room for new yarn?

There will be a box at the Indie Knit and Spin for donations of new caps and hats which will be donated to the Allegheny General Hospital and Freeport Rd. Chemo Wards. These caps and hats will hopefully provide some warmth and comfort for patients at both centers. If you would like to donate a new hat, you can drop it off in the donation box at the event or send a private message to Laura Roth.

Please follow a few very basic rules when making your hats: use very soft cotton or synthetic fibers to prevent allergies and issues with sensitive skin. Please also choose a pattern that has no seams and is not excessively lumpy. If you have questions, feel free to send a PM to Laura. For ideas of yarns to use and sizes to make, please check the info provided at the following link (these are the guidelines we are going by): https://www.dropbox.com/s/x57183el58ud08d/Required_Yarn_List_2017.pdf?dl=1
