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.

Blue Moon…

Yarn of course! I love using Socks That Rock, sock yarn for shawls…3.75 needles and I’m on my way!

I bought two hanks in ‘rare gems’ and I’m alternate using both balls using the triangle shawl pattern.

 

 

Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival 

Spent the day surrounded by fiber lovers – touching luxurious yarn (at the Dutchess county fairgrounds). The Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival draws thousands of fiber lovers, from all over. There are vendors galore, aisle after aisle of amazing yarn. I’m grateful for gorgeous sunny weather with temps in the 60’s = perfect day!

I bought more than I should but, I’m frugal with my yarn purchase, most of year anyway. 😉 A few skeins, but couldn’t find the Blue Moon “Fire on the Mountain” hank which I need to finish a shawl. Well, I bought another colorway to make another. I also bought some accessories (knitting needles, crochet hook, etc.), earrings, some alpaca socks (for gifts), my annual large basket purchase & of course, a falafel.

Another amazing day surrounded by yarn!!

 

Headbands for Craniosynostosis


With a lot of craziness going on in our country, and the world, I gladly turn to my hooks and needles to create inner peace.

Summertime = more colorful ☺ cotton on my hooks & needles. I’m still whipping up cute girlie headbands. I’ve added another charity cause for girls with Craniosynostosis.  One of my friends sends care packages, a few times a year that will be added to care boxes they send to families. So, I have decided to do some of these for them as well.
