They had some Easter bunnies as well. I really like sitting in this café gathering my strength for the shopping and looking at the always changing flower arrangements.
This time of the year is too cold for anything to flower in the garden so we must let the professionals grow our Easter flowers. Time for daffodils in the garden will be late in May.
I have chosen the chemo cap campaign for Finnish Brown Owls' charity of the month. This is the first time I have heard of this campaign in Finland. (All these links are in Finnish only.) I use baby yarns or cotton or bamboo yarns for the caps. Here are the results so far:
Two of these - only about 35 grams goes in one cap so I think I can knit a third one from the same ball if I make it slightly smaller. These caps are made for the summer or indoor use, just to cover the lost hair and make the person feel a little better.
The crocheted cap used almost one 100 g ball of yarn. There will not be enough for another one, even if I would knit it, so I will crochet a flower for decoration.
This pattern is fun and easy, so I'm making yet another one in brown shades. The patients can pick any cap they like, and I hope there is someone who likes brown colours as much as I do. The campaign started in Northern Finland and has spread all over the country. My caps will go to Helsinki, which is the closest chemotherapy hospital.
With these flowers I wish you all Happy Easter and happy spring!
