New Year .. New Hats

Note from Gizzy: Mom hasn't taken many pictures of me lately . Not too many outside pictures either because she's been busy making hats. Only one of the hats is for her. (It's the one on the bottom.) The other hats are going to be placed in the hat box at the Cancer Center.


Note from Mom: I spent last winter with no hair. One of the things I'd never realized was how cold you can feel when you have no hair on your head...even in the house...even at temps when others don't feel cold. You can buy hats and scarfs and turbans and wigs but they don't always do what you want them to do...and they often don't look they way you wish they would. Sometimes a soft, comfy hat is just what you need.

Giz tell Mom she is one excellent crocheter...is that a word? I love all of them and I know the folks at the cancer center will be very appreciative.

Bette,
Your hats look soft in the photo!
Very beautiful creations! The patients will be fighting over them!

I see what you mean about the crocheted flower, that looks tricky but adds a nice accent to the hat!
