Knit (or Knot) Some Love

Heart Yarn What better day to announce our partnership with Knots-of-Love than Valentine’s Day! Through this partnership, we’re offering exclusive Knots-of-Love starter kits for knitters or knotters to create a chemotherapy cap for a cancer patient.

The Knots-of-Love starter kits include everything you need to make a chemotherapy cap including two forest palm knitting needles, two exotic wood crochet hooks, a skein of Caron Simple Soft Yarn, a pattern and instructions on where to send the cap when you’re done..

“We’re thrilled to be part of this project,” says Rick Brown, co-owner of Laurel Hill. “For each kit purchased, Laurel Hill will give $3 to Knots-of-Love.”

“We are very grateful for Laurel Hill’s involvement in Knots-of-Love,” Founder Christine Shively adds. “We know with their help we will reach more cancer patients with handmade-with-love chemotherapy caps.”

Knots of Love: Warm Weather Care

Chemotherapy is hard on a cancer patient’s skin, causing very dry skin that can be sensitive to touch and to sun exposure.

In the summer months, Knots of Love, makes two types of caps for chemotherapy patients – caps made from cotton or cotton blend yarns (see brimmed cap picture) and sleep caps for ladies (see purple picture).

Knots of Love is our charity partner at Laurel Hill and we’re pleased to support them. If you’re a Knots of Love volunteer, contact them (or us) for your code. $1 of every purchase at our online store goes back to the organization.
