Yesterday, I found out about a charity collecting purple newborn hats. I might have been standing in the yarn aisle of a craft store, talking with a fellow crocheter/knitter while selecting yarn I really don’t need and don’t have room for. Maybe. It depends on who is asking.
Once upon a time, I was at a craft store and bought one of those yarn cakes. They are so popular I wanted to give one a try. And the colors were pretty. I’m a sucker for blues.
I brought the yarn cake home and it sat in a prominent place in my yarn closet.
What are you supposed to make with these things, anyway?
The weeks turned into months before I picked it up, determined to use it.
I am guilty, once again, of distracted knitting.
Uh oh, that hole is not supposed to be there!
Basic zig-zag knitting pattern at the end. It’s lovely with self-striping yarn!
It’s April 18th. Despite it being an awfully busy month so far, I have made 20 hats! I am well on my way to meeting my goal of 30, to donate to cancer patients, by the end of the month.
I always let the hats pile up and then sew in the ends all at once.
In other very exciting news, my sister successfully completed the Boston Marathon yesterday!
I have a friend who is facing some unexpected health issues with her new baby. I never know what to do when faced with news like that, so I turned to my yarn. A couple hours after hearing the news I had this little lady made. This is a lovey variation of my Chubby Bunny pattern. I chose my yarns so the lovey will match a blanket I previously made for my friend’s baby.
I’m embarking on another one.
