MBM: Made By Mom
You see, my good friend, Brandy, got cancer this year. She was facing a lot of challenges from chemo, to trying to continue homeschooling her five children through it all and to top it all off, her husband lost his job. I felt pretty helpless. I don't even cook well or live nearby, so joining the meal chain in our Sunday school class was pointless. But then I saw this display of yarn and a free pattern for making hats. It was pink with a ribbon and said the money went to support cancer research.
So, I got a booklet on how to translate the crochet terminology and struggled through it. I had to redo it a few times and made
But my second hat was just the right size. It's not much, but like I told Brandy, that hat wasn't made out of yarn... it was made out of love.
