I WOULD like to invite Oberon's knitters to join me in taking part in the Knit For Cancer project.

I am asking our amazing knitters and crocheters to create their choice of a cosy beanie or a scarf (or both if you like) which will be either provided to patients undergoing cancer treatment or sold through various support groups and organisations to raise vital funds for cancer research, prevention programs and support services.
You can either knit a pattern of your choice or a copy of the official one can be picked up from Sharon at council.
Preferred colours are any shade of blue, grey and white or a combination of two or more.
Add a touch of yellow into your design; it could be integrated into the pattern or possibly with a crocheted daffodil.
Beanies can be for children, men or women ... cancer does not discriminate.
So please, "get yarned and dangerous".
A limited supply of wool will be available from council, as will patterns for both beanies and scarves.
A little tip: as a portion of the beanies and scarves will be given to cancer patients, can I suggest you use soft, non-irritating yarn, avoid bulky seams and ensure the stitch pattern provides adequate coverage.
Once you've finished your beanie and/or scarf, drop it into the basket which will be located at council by August 26 and we will post off all the finished items on behalf of the Oberon community. (Please attach your name and contact details; the Cancer Council would like to acknowledge your contribution.)
While we are all spending a little more time at home due to COVID-19, this is the perfect time to give a little to those undergoing challenges in their lives.
Please ring either myself, 0428 543 693, or Sharon, 6329 8151, for further information.
Your support is appreciated. I can't wait to see your creations!
The organisers of this project, the Cancer Council, would like anyone who has a story to tell about cancer to share it; please attach to your finished item.
