The Mission Part II

I finished. Well, I finished Saturday around 4 pm, so it's been a while. I'm just lazy and dealing with midterms and the like. But I had a nice long Roommate From Hell-free weekend, so I got a lot of knitting done. Five pm on Saturday found me at the FedEx in town, where I shipped the FIVE hats I made. They should be arriving sometime tomorrow.
So, when I posted The Mission (Part I), I was in such a rush to get started that I failed to mention details. The hats are for one of my aunts who lives up north. Many years ago, she had breast cancer (twice) and survived. I was pretty young at the time, so all I remember is going up for the summer and seeing her with no hair. Recently (as in, like, two days before The Mission Part I), doctors found a small tumor near/on/in her brain. This was really really scary at first (let's just say there was some hysterics on my part. This isn't something I ever wanted to hear, much less on the phone with my mother while I'm on my way to my art history class). About four years ago, I had a brain cancer scare (if that makes sense), and though it wasn't, it was still beyond terrifying for me and those around me. So I can't even imagine.
But she's going to be fine. Thank god. She lost her hair on Friday, so I wanted to make sure the hats got out to her as soon as possible. So, the final product:
Light blue: Karma Hat
Medium blue: Braided Cable Hat
