A few weeks ago, my friend Becky asked if I would knit a scarf and hat set for a silent auction for her friend. Leila was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, and it was discovered 19 out of 22 lymph nodes were cancerous, along with cancer cells in her liver and spine.

After hearing all that, I said yes immediately, and set about making a hat and scarf for the Spaghetti Feed and silent auction being held on February 12th. Above are my offerings - a gender-neutral waffle hat and scarf.

If you live in the Omaha or Lincoln area and can attend the benefit, it's being held on February 12th at Norris Middle School in Lincoln. It sounds like it's going to be an amazing event, and all money will help support this amazing woman fighting for her life.


  1. you do so much good work, you can be proud of yourself!
    love the scarf, if I didn't already have 5 projects on my needles I'd knit the scarf right away :D

  2. breaks my heart to hear this. thank you for supporting her in this way!
