Knitting for the Cure

I've gotten started on my pink items to donate to the Susan G Komen fundraiser. After the October San Diego 5K event, hand knit or crocheted items from area LYS's will be sold with all the proceeds going to the SGK foundation.

The pinwheel style cap is from Tofutsies yarn. I used less than 30 grams of the 100 gram skein, so I can either get 2 more caps from the left over, or a pair of toe up footlets. The short socks are an adaptation of the Pink Ribbons socks with the ribbon motif worked 4 times around with only one repeat. I used Regia yarn purchased from Astrid in the Netherlands with enough left over for a cap or a pair of baby socks. All nice small projects easier to work in the summer heat.
