I just came across Cat's new book of felted slipper patterns. It is US$20 and all proceeds go to Dr. David Krag's cancer research at the University of Vermont Medical Lab. Dr. Krag is the doctor who pioneered sentinel node treatment of breast cancer and developed the tiny rice kernel size probe to find the nodes which has been a true God-send to women with breast cancer. Indeed, sentinel node biopsy is the treatment all over the world and has save many women's arms (and as Cat says, many knitter's arms).
He is now researching cancer treatment using a patient's own antibodies which he is hoping (as I understand) will replace chemotherapy in cancer treatment. Check out her newest e-book "The Art of Felfs". It has some pretty cool stuff in it.
Oh, and by the way, Dr. Krag knits!!
I discovered the Felfs book earlier and do appreciate Dr. Krag's research, as I am a breast cancer survivor that benefited from the sentinel node treatment.
Has anyone made felfs? I would love to hear about them and see some pics. I have just looked at the pattern, but want to jump in and make some.
