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.
