Greetings Everyone,

I hope you’re all enjoying your summer. We’ve been road tripping the past couple of weeks which has given me plenty of time to knit.

I visited yarn stores in Richfield, Utah, West Yellowstone and Bozeman and Helena Montana. Truly I have never met a yarn shop I did not like, but I was reminded once again of how lucky we are to have so many EXCELLENT shops right here in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Knitters outside of the state of Utah; I suggest you organize a field trip. You could spend a week here visiting all of our wonderful yarn shops. We could have a party ­čÖé

Speaking of parties… Last month I had the pleasure of meeting some of the lovely ladies of Craft Around Corners at their favorite Salt Lake hangout, Tea Zaanti. These women led by Sandra Ronca a.k.a. Slouchybee on Ravelry, are super heroes in the compassionate knitting world. They spend much of their time knitting Sandra’s original toy patterns (found on Ravelry) for the University of Utah’s Burn Unit, but have recently turned their efforts towards knitting preemie hats and summer chemo hats. Kudos to you Craft Around Corners. We at Pioneers of Peace love you.

I will ┬ábe taking our last delivery of women’s summer chemo hats to Huntsman Cancer Institute on August 19th. Please gets your hats to me, or one of the other drop-off ┬álocations by Thursday the 18th. There is still time to be a stranger on someone’s tender mercy list. ┬áLast month I dropped off a baker’s dozen that were sure to touch at least that many hearts. Many thanks to all who contributed.

On this lovely Saturday afternoon, I find myself knitting one more colorful chemo hat and making mozzarella cheese. It can’t get better than this, but wait…yes it can. In the middle of all this creativity we had a gigantic rain storm, complete with lightening and thunder. My husband and I went out on the porch and watched it pour. There is nothing like the sound of rain during the storm and the heavenly aroma of sycamore trees after the storm.

 

Homemade mozzarella and chemo hats- a perfect combination don
