2KCBWDAY4 — Where are they now?

Whatever happened to your __________?

Write about the fate of a past knitting project. Whether it be something that you crocheted or knitted for yourself or to give to another person. An item that lives with you or something which you sent off to charity.

Last year, the word came that the daughter of a friend had been diagnosed with leukemia. She was four. After the initial shock, I started thinking about I could do to help the family cope. “Oh yeah! Chemo! She’s going to lose her hair!” And so, Emma’s Hat Project began.

I started the first hat on March 10, 2010, and finished the fifth on March 24, 2010. These five hats were mailed to California within a few days of being finished, where they graced the tender bald head of Emma Alice until her hair started to grow back a couple of months ago. Emma’s doing just fine now. The leukemia appears to be in complete remission. And I’ll be darned if I can find her website to show you all….could have sworn I had it bookmarked.
