Why knit hats...

I just checked my (AK)list and saw that my friend Carol is out of the hospital.I know how relieved I am so her family must be exstatic. I would like to tell you a little bit about Carol. I have never had the opportunity to actually meet met her in person but we have e-mailed. She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Not long ago she told me of some major things that have happened to her in the last few years (cancer being one of them). And I myself in the last few years have had MAJOR loses and set backs in my life. I also realize there are folks out there who feel all alone. Yes, they may or may not have their family but they still feel as if know one else knows how or what they are feeling. I wanted to do something but had no clue what. One day,Carol mentioned cancer and it hit me like a ton of bricks. An epipfinay, if you will! HATS. Cancer patients need them because of chemo. Burn patients need the warmth and protection. Heart patients,(like my dad) wore one all the time. Because of his meds, he was always cold. He always wore a hat, sweater and a blanket on his lap. So "Rockn-Noggins" was born.
I have some folk out their knitting and crotcheting their fingers to the bone all thanks to Carol. So THANK YOU CAROL!!!

I have been a little under the weather myself lately. I don't know how much knitting I will get done. Mom is moving this weekend. And I just don't feel well. Sometimes life just makes you want to cry. I'm not going to sit here and feel sorry for myself! I'm of to knit a row or so then off to see if I can help mom. Then maybe I'll knit a little more later.
