I just saw this at She Makes Hats and just had to share.
Jessica from Ephierell Designs is running a big charity knitting action called 100 Beanie Drive to gather 100 handmade beanies for cancer patients - especially men undergoing chemo therapy.
See, Jessica's father is battling leukemia himself, and once mentioned to Jessica that there weren't many hats or scarves donated for men, almost all handknits were styled more for women. So she decided to do something about it, and behold 100 Beanie Drive was born.
I plan to make a beanie or two for the campaign - can you help, too?
