Welcome to my blog!
Welcome! I will be posting different crafting items that I am working on for charity and probably a few that are for my family or gifts.
A bit about me ... I am a SAHM of two girls. Married to a wonderful caring guy who puts up with all my ongoing craft projects for 10 years. We currently live in western WA where it has been very very hot for the last couple of days! I enjoy quilting, knitting, and sewing. You can find my website here:
Current Knitting Projects:
Currently I am working on a preemie burial dress created by Mary Glynn for Heavenly Angels In Need. You can find the patterns here
I also have a wool cardigan sweater on the needles size 5-6. This will be for Afghans for Afghans. This organization sends wool sweaters, hats, mitts, vests and blankets to the people in Afghanistan. The pattern for the sweater I am making can be found here
I love all of Patti's knitting patterns ... the directions are very clear and the project turns out beautiful!
Recently Completed Items:
The hat and sweater set (newborn size) was designed by Patti at P2 Designs. I used Patons Astra yarn. The label says it is a DK weight but it seems more like a worsted weight to me. Anyway, I am happy with how it turned out. The set was donated to HAIN. You can find the pattern (with socks to match) here: http://www.p2designs.com/images/patterns/CheckedMates.html
The dress and bonnet were made with Patons DK yarn. This yarn seems more like a DK weight. The dress is only 10" long to fit a 1 - 2lb preemie baby that has passed away. The pattern is designed by Mary Glynn of HAIN. You can find the pattern here:
Hope everyone has a blessed day!
