Web-Letter, Issue 159 Pink Scarves
Statistics sometimes feel like just numbers. But in the case of a breast cancer diagnosis (not to mention other diseases being measured), they mean real people, in real health-crisis situations. Our small company is primarily staffed by women. Statistically the odds were not in our favor, and sure enough, Classic Elite has been touched more than once by breast cancer (1 in 8 women will face a breast cancer diagnosis in her life). In fact, it’s safe to say that everyone at our company has been touched whether it be a sister, daughter, aunt, mother, cousin, friend or co-worker.
As homage to anyone who has faced this disease, and to the hundreds of thousands we don’t personally know, we came together for our own little pink scarf project. Ten scarves or scarf-like pieces were designed and knit by the staff at Classic Elite. I hope you enjoy these patterns, but most importantly, we want you to remember those touched by breast cancer, and if you are able, to reach out to your favorite worthy charity. A cure is a wonderful thing. But even more wonderful would be if no one would have to worry about breast cancer affecting her life. Ever.
We are happy to include three scarves in this week’s Web-Letter. Look for the other scarf patterns pictured throughout the month on our blog.
