Cap Karma

This blog is set up for the cap making community of ladies at the San Francisco International Airport. The caps are for chemo patients and are donated to a local hospital. The hand made caps (knitted or crocheted) are a token of our prayers and well wishes for the recipient.

How do you pronounce that?

So I've had a few of you ask how to pronounce Smariek, well, I wish I knew. And when you make reference to that, I have to really think about who you're talking about - and then I think, oh "S".

Let's look at Smariek another way - "S" stands for the first name, "K" for the last and then what you have is Marie. And I know that's a whole lot easier for all of you. But S - I will not be calling you Marie.

I've been thinking that we should profile our group members, like I did for Tania. And while I did introduce you all to Smariek/Marie, I didn't really elaborate. Marie let me know if you'd like to share a photo of yourself.

I've known Marie for 20 years (yes, it's been that long). She's the first friend I made when I came to this country, met her volunteering at a hospital. Turned out that I was headed for the same high school she was attending.

Marie is a mom and a former IT person. Her little girl, M, is 19 months and keeps mom very busy. It's surprising to me that Marie has time to do anything at all with little M but she's cooking with the blog and patterns, while keeping up with everything else in her life.

She has created a few of the cap patterns listed on this blog:
3 AM Cable Hat (created during the middle-of-the-night feedings)
Asherton Hat
Cap Karma Hat
Claudia Hat

Other than knitting (like crazy - check out her other creations at her blog) , she enjoys cooking, reading, sudoku, photography and is a connoisseur of wine and tea. She is learning latin and says she is learning french but I know she speaks french fluently.

Thanks Marie for all your great ideas and with this blog, blogger and the code stuff that makes this blog function the way it does.

That can't be right, we're still in our mid 20s... ;-)

Yes, we are still in our mid 20s - denial is a nice thing and who says we've got to feel our age??
