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.

Cotton, cotton and more cotton

 

I bought these gorgeous cones (14 oz) the ‘Seabreeze’ goes beautifully with this baby blanket. The striped ‘Limeade’ will make neat wash and dish cloths.

Lily Cotton (hot green) meets Peaches & Creme cotton (Seabreeze)

I decided to make a bunch of washcloths with the leftover cotton. They’ll go into my “TLC packs” for the ladies at a local shelter… along with soap, a toothbrush, etc.

Together we’ve done a lot…

 

I’ve done a lot of crocheted items: hats, scarves, cowls, lapghans, and fingerless gloves for our charity projects. Added together my Stitch & Bitch donated in excess of 200 stitched items. I am grateful as a group could offer so much.

On my #8 needles today is a sunny, lighter weight baby blanket (for a friend’s baby). I’m using Caron Simply soft for Spring & Easter.
