I love the season of Thanksgiving. There is so much to be thankful. I try to teach my children to not take advantage of even the little things that we should be thankful for. Today, we are reflecting on our health. We are thankful to be able to run, play, have conversations, give hugs and help others.

2017 Cancer Challenge Final Pledges

      3 Comments on 2017 Cancer Challenge Final Pledges
The 2017 Cancer Challenge began on October 1, 2017. Each day a crochet pattern designer sponsored the challenge by providing a free pattern in exchange for your pledge to make a hat. The hats made are suppose to be donated to someone going through cancer, or to your local cancer center.
I want to personally say Thank You to everyone who participated and made pledges this year. I know that each one of these hats will be made with love and many are being given in honor of a loved one. What a great way for us crocheters to touch others lives.
Sweet Potato 3

If you haven’t completed your pledges, don’t fret! You have until the end of 2017 to fulfill your pledges. I am still working on mine but plan on making my donation in time for Thanksgiving.

Come back next year for the Cancer Challenge!

I will be hosting the Cancer Challenge once again in 2018. Make sure to follow Sweet Potato 3 on facebook to stay in the loop.

Cancer Challenge Day 31: MJ’s Off the Hook Designs

MJ’s Off the Hook Designs is sponsoring out last day. And she is helping us go out with a bang! Check out how perfect her Bulky & Quick Newsboy hat pattern is.

Bulky & quick

But, it gets even better, the Bulky & Quick Newsboy is very versitile. You can choose how you want to make it, with or without the brim, maybe add a flower, with or without the band… oh, so many choices!

Cancer Challenge

This Bulky & Quick Newsboy pattern also comes with mulitiple sizes ranging from baby to adult large. I think I may work up a few using up some of my yarn stash.

Cancer Challenge

I know the Bulky & Quick Newsboy pattern will be a huge hit in those donation boxes. To get this fun pattern today, you must pledge to make one for the Cancer Challenge. To pledge a hat, you just need to use the code “2017CancerChallenge” at checkout. You will then receive the pattern for free, but hurry the code will only be valid for 48 hours, or through November 1, 2017.
