It seems like everyone’s lives have been touched by cancer.  Sometimes, the unfairness of it makes you want to scream.  And sometimes a survivor’s story can make you want to get up and do something amazing.  This weekend, let’s all do a little something for someone or in memory of someone – let’s make hats.

Knit, crocheted, sewn – in all styles, colors sizes – all soft and beautiful and full of love.

Donated hats

The Cape Cod Head Huggers are holding their semi-annual meeting this Sunday, February 12 from 1-4pm at Wood’s Hole Oceanographic Institute, Clark 507 in the foyer overlooking the ocean.  Let me tell you a bit about them–

Ann and Lisa are two amazing, beautiful people who have been personally affected by cancer.  They decided to do something to help out and organized a Cape Cod chapter of Head Huggers.orgSoft donated hats are distributed to cancer survivors and provide warmth and comfort through a difficult time.  Ann and Lisa have worked hard to collect and distribute these hats to our friends and neighbors here on Cape Cod.

If you have a hat you would like to donate or would like to hang out and work on a hat, come on down to Woods Hole on Sunday.  Relax, watch the ocean and chat with other wonderful people.  If you can’t make it, you can drop off a hat at any time to Sage Yarn and we will hand it off to Lisa or Ann.  It seems like a small effort compared to fighting a disease, but we all know it’s the little things that make a big difference.  I will be there with donated yarn if you don’t have any appropriate stash 🙂
