I have been crocheting hats for chemo patients for about a year now. I've decided to make as many pink ones as I can for this month. That way, I will have an opportunity for introducing the subject of breast cancer awareness to anyone who might see me crocheting.
Typical question: "Oh. What's that you're making?"
"I'm making hats to donate to chemo patients."
"Oh, wow! That's so cool!"
"Thank you. I'm doing them all in pink this month."
"Do you make a different color for each month?"
"No. But this month is special."
"Why is that?"
"October is breast cancer awareness month."
Maybe I'm a little late on this. Perhaps I should have done them last month so I could donate them to my oncologist's office this month! Next year, I will start early.
