Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that more than 40,000 people (including men!) will die this year of breast cancer? That figure is staggering. My godmother (only in her 40's) died of breast cancer in 1990, so breast cancer awareness is a big deal to me.

Please do a self-breast exam at least once a month! In honor of this month, here's a pink hat. It was made from a baby hat pattern that I adjusted to fit my large noggin.

Here's the pattern: Oh Baby hat



Can't tell I pencil in my eyebrows, can ya? :)~
