I might be interested, PF. Send me a PM with more information. I'm always up for a worthwhile project.

Several years go I knitted scarves for bargemen who work on our rivers. I really enjoyed doing it and it was quite rewarding.

Went out and yanked overgrown vines and such, what a nice day for December! But it's getting dark, so will have to do our walk soon.

And I would love to post a pic of the people next to us. They've got a blow-up doll in the back of their truck.

What are the specs on a chemo hat? That sounds like something that I could crochet up in no time. I have loads of yarn.

I'm confused - I thought that fruits and vegetables were good things to have, even with pre-diabetes. I understand the need to avoid starches, but why are fruits and carrots off your menu?
