The speedy knitters and crocheters were out yesterday racing to complete hats for chemo patients and to contribute to the Avon Foundation for Women, raising over $400! Each participant’s registration fee went directly to the Foundation to provide awareness and education; screening and diagnosis; access to treatment; support services; and scientific research, all with a focus on the medically underserved.
Holly of Knit Happens and I went head to head to determine who was the faster knitter after all. We each have a similar style, working English but with the yarn on the end of a pointer finger, eliminating the “throwing” motion that many English knitters have. In the end, I was victorious but we are going to rematch using a wool yarn instead of cotton. (Holly has a particular dislike for cotton!)
