Something good…

I had to remind myself to breathe…just breathe  as I watched the elections.

I am grateful to be able to practice my hobby of Crochet. I brought out my Christmas colored yarn and stitched like crazy making these.

Something good came out of that night after all: Christmas baby hats – for a local Hospital maternity ward.

WIP new project

The ladies of my Stitch & Bitch are working a Valentine’s Day project making Lap-ghans for the Veterans at the Montrose Nursing Home.

So, this is my work in process – I’m using a K hook, chain 89 (working the length across)  for: 27″ x 44″.  I’m doing a hdc with dc on the border colors.

On my hooks: Working on the Midnight Run project my Stitch & Bitch is making items for. Everyone seems to love Camo and the half double crochet is coming along nicely using this large K hook. Glad to be able to make more items for men too. I tend to have loads of great yarn colors for women.

V = Veterans…

Considering Veterans Day is this coming Friday the timing is perfect to start a new Knit & Crochet project.

So, my Stitch & Bitch has decided to take on a new mission this year for our local Veterans… “Valuing Our Veterans” – “we love our Vets, today & always” in time for Valentine’s Day 2012. This may sound far off but it takes time planning and implementing. We’ll be Crocheting & Knitted hat & scarf sets for Vets of our local American Legion.

I need to get busy securing sponsors!! A tremendous Thank you out to Tom @ our local Panera Cafe for pledging $100!! He has always been so supportive of our charities.

We hope to buy both washable wool yarn (can be pricey!) as well as more affordable acrylic brands like good old Red Heart, etc.! I’m far from a yarn snob as most of my charity projects are made with Red Heart and Lion’s brand yarn. I find these yarns hold up very well for items like hats. We also have to consider the fact that some people have allergies to wool.

So, in addition to all the holiday planning I need to do I’m excited to have a new mission.

If anyone knows of someone looking to donate yarn please message me…we’d be thrilled to be the recipients!!
