Good Deeds Volume One: Hats
This is something that I have wanted to do for quite a while. Finally, the announcement can be made that Volume One of Good Deeds is released! At the bottom of this blog post is the first of a few drawings to celebrate the release!
This project is a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Connections; a non-profit based in Palo Alto, CA that offers support to those dealing with breast cancer. In addition to support groups, they also provide opportunity to attend discussions with medical providers who are able to answer questions regarding treatment, symptoms, and prevention.
More than this, Breast Cancer Connections also organizes a boutique where clients can "shop" for wigs and hats (all provided at no charge!), and they have an oncology esthetician who meets with clients to offer beauty tips!
The collection is available as an e-book (.pdf) download via Ravelry, and 100% of the proceeds benefit Breast Cancer Connections. There are many ways you can contribute:

Something Good is Coming!
While so many fiber folks are posting, sharing, and commenting about their fluffy finds at Rhinebeck, I'm here in the studio working on layout and final edits for the upcoming ebook: Good Deeds, Volume One: Hats"! The project is almost ready, so I better get back to work. I just wanted to say "Happy Rhinebeck!" to everyone who is lucky enough to be there.
While you're perusing the fiber, perhaps you'll pick up a couple skeins of yarn to knit a hat for charity?
