I am, in fact, alive and well. School is just absolutely exhausting
this semester, and Christmas knitting is in full swing. Expect a huge catch up post soon, but for now....We inturrupt this knitting blog to bring you a public service announcment:
October is breast cancer awareness month, and I hope you don't need a reminder, but please do remember to perform a self-breast exam
, and get a breast exam every year with your gynocological visit to your health care provider (no excuses about not going to that, either!). There are so many environmental dammages increasing our risk of breast cancer every year, it's scary. But by educating yourself and taking responsibility for your health you can do your part to stop breast cancer and keep yourself safe. Tell a friend!
