This weekend we had dinner with Vicki, who has started chemo for breast cancer. She was delighted with the cowl I knitted out of mink yarn (the pattern is called Stratosphere) — it seems that Vicki is very sensitive to drafts against the back of her neck, below where hats typically reach.
Other than losing her hair, Vicki said that the first treatment wasn’t too bad. Today, she’s having the second of four treatments. Here’s hoping she bounces back just as quickly!
