For the love of Accessories

Here are a few new finds of some cool accessories.

It’s my first time trying the Gorilla glue – works well. I also like the simple and effective screw on and off top… it seals well after using.

Now, off to craft!

Baby Booties on my hooks…

20170513_203855

Working on these for a friend expecting her first baby, a boy! These stitch up quickly and can be embellished with ribbon or buttons. I’m looking for small football buttons to add…my friend is a huge football fan!

Using ‘Shine’ cotton from Knit Picks – it’s very soft, has a nice subtle sheen and comes in a variety of colors …perfect for baby booties. Pattern tutorial: https://youtu.be/xKsPKrdzm_k

I crocheted a spa cloth but I did not like how the stitch spread open after one wash. So, I’ll use it for smaller baby accessories. I’m going to try their worsted weight which I expect will be more durable for larger items like a baby blanket.

 

 

 

Americana

Working with Red Heart Yarn, “Americana” self striping Red White & Blue making newborn baby hats for one of my charity projects.  Lois, a member of my Stitch & Bitch collects baby hats for the newborn babies of White Plains Hospital.  We often make hats with holiday theme colors. She came up with the brilliant idea to make these inclusivity hats as a “welcome to America” for the newborn babies. Red Heart Yarn can be found at any yarn store & places like Walmart for $2.88 a skein (in NY). One skein makes 3 hats.

I will glady accept yarn donations from anyone in the Westchester County in the NY area.

 

Keeping it together, stitch by stitch…

With all the craziness going on in this world I’m grateful for my hobby of Crocheting/ Knitting …it helps keep my restless hands busy and anxious tendencies in check.

I also use some of the helpful practices given (below).

Working on a few charity projects, these prayer hearts will be sent to women who are grieving the lost of an infant (2nd and 3rd trimester).

This turquoise baby blanket is for friend’s newborn baby boy. I love working with this cheerful color.
