knit cap

Hello Friends,
   I hope your holidays were wonderful.  We had a wet Christmas day but who cares! It was Christmas!
2010 is looming right around the corner and hopes are high that it will be a great year.

I have not had as much time to craft lately but did find time to knit this pretty roll brim hat.  Please pardon the makeshift hat stand.

I like the way it looks from the top.  The decreasing stitches used to shape the top makes a nice swirl pattern.

My father is currently going through cancer treatments and there is a basket of donated hats in the waiting room for ladies going through chemo threrapy.  Add one more.


  1. I'm sure those ladies appreciate the warm and beautiful hats. What a very sweet donation. Wishing your dad all the best.

  2. Love the cap, what a wonderful thing to do.....

    How is your dad?

  3. What a wonderful knit cap. A beautiful addition to the cancer hat bin. The ladies will just love it! Sending good thoughts and prayers your Dad's way.

  4. Sorry to hear about your Dad - hope he is responding well to the treatment! I am sure your sweet hat will be most appreciated - the wool looks so soft.

  5. Oh Rumi you are so talented and so thoughtful, what a great idea.

  6. What a lovely feminine hat for such a good cause. I like the swirl top too.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  7. That is so wonderful of you to donate the hat. One of the patients will absolutely love it!

  8. So sorry to hear about your dad. Hope all goes well for his treatments. Happy New Year to you.
    Very cute cap.

  9. Daer Rumi,
    I am so sorry to hear about your Father's illness. I will include him in my prayers. The hat is a Rumi beautifully constructed object of art, as usual. My sister recieved a prayer shaw yesterday, she has breast cancer and is are in the early stages of trying to figure out what to do.
    Be well, and let me know if I can do something to help. Robin
