Chatting and knitting for a good cause
Knitters at Unravel yarn shop in downtown Flagstaff knit chemo caps for local cancer patients on Wednesday night. The caps will be added to donations from The Journey Church and Pine Forest Charter School. To order this photo go to http://photos.azdailysun.com Josh Biggs/Arizona Daily Sun

The yarn is ultra-soft and comes is lovely colors like rust-orange, rosy-pink, baby-blue and heather-gray. There is as much yarn as a knitter might need be creative and productive. The yarn is in the hands of the 30 people who have gathered for a knitting circle Wednesday night at Unravel, a local yarn and knitting shop on Route 66, next to Animas Beads.

Their ages range from 6 to 60, and they are here to donate their time by making hand-knit caps for cancer patients in hospital oncology units and hospice care. Called chemo caps, these hats are made so cancer patients who lose their hair can have a very soft cap to call their own, comforting their heads and souls.
