Sometimes life throws us a curve ball. We're ready to hit a fast ball, and hit it hard, so when that curve ball comes and smacks us in the face, we go down hard. You probably remember the curve ball that hit my son, Johnny four years or so ago when a traumatic elbow injury and surgery derailed his plans for a career as a Marine Corps officer. It was devastating for him. Looking over the smoking ruins of his plans he had to plot a new course to keep him on track to graduation and a successful future. He had some missteps and false starts, but here he is now, graduated, interviewing for jobs, and excited about his new path.

Pink Friday's Project - One in Eight

2017-10-06 19.35.49

Designed for our 2017 Pink Friday breast cancer awareness fund-raiser, this pattern is a multiple of 8 stitches which reminds us that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Awareness is an easy knit in a fun yarn with gently shifting colors and subtle twinkle.

For every kit purchased this month, we'll be donating $10 to MedStar St. Mary's Breast Cancer Outreach and Awareness program.
