The challenge is on... it's "PINKtober!"  The gals on my Ravelry group called "12 months = 24 hats" (where our goal is to make at least two hats for chemo patients each month) is encouraging folks to make pink projects during October 2011 as it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I've got a head start:

I came up with this pattern on my own.  I started out intending to make a different pattern, got a little full of myself and did not consult the pattern, and then, several rows into the cap, I realized I had too many stitches. Duh!  I couldn't bear to frog it, so.... Ta-Dah!  A new design!  Yarn is Berroco Comfort DK in "rosebud".  Hat will go to "Halos of Hope" (caps for chemo patients).

The pattern link here on this blog can be found here:  Ribbons of Hope Hat

Also making this pretty cabled mitts for Mitts of Steal (fingerless mitts for dialysis patients with cold hands).

Very pretty pattern. Just sent it to a friend of mine who is undergoing treatment for her second go-round with breast cancer. She'll love it!
