Spreading Hope…a hat at a time.

Secret Mission

Jazlyn created this black hat for our new Secret Mission.  We are doing a drive for children Chemo Warriors in a specific theme.  We have been planning this for a while and will probably unveil the secrecy at a later time.  My daughter used black charisma yarn and did a garter stitch for the brim.  The rest of the hat is e-wrapped.  I am very proud that my teenage daughter enjoys making hats and finds it rewarding to give her creations to Chemo Warriors.  In fact, I asked her if she wanted to keep the first hat of our Secret Mission, <yes it’s so cool, that she & my son will want one> and she told me, “Nah.  There’s plenty of time to make hats for us.  Let’s concentrate on the kids who are fighting cancer!”.  Aww, my heart must have burst with pride.  But trying to “be chill” <teenage lingo meaning mom, don’t go messing this moment up>, I just smiled and looked down so she couldn’t see my eyes that started filling with tears (of joy & pride).  That’s my baby!
