The hat for the Dulaan project is done. I actually finished it before Benji arrived on the scene but haven't had a chance to take any pictures. It is made with worsted weight 100% wool from my stash and it didn't have a label on it. The pattern is one by Sarah Peasley which I have made a few times before. I really like how it turns out. This makes 6 items completed for Dulaan with a large size sweater almost finished -- it's one of my UFOs (unfinished objects) that has been sitting on my "to do" pile for months.
The next project I volunteered for this week is to help In The Field Ministries by making a basket for their auction in May. They are hoping to raise $25,000 so that they can drill a well in Rwenjiri and help out the local Pastor by replacing his mud home with a brick one. I am planning on making a "Baby Basket" for them. This hat is for the basket and I am working on making some booties to go with the hat. Hat pattern is from P2Designs. I have a fleece blanket that I will crochet an edging around, a couple of flannel burp clothes, wash cloth and then I will probably go shopping for the rest. Binky, sleepers, stuffed animal, a toy or two. Any other ideas on what would be a good item to add? If I am really ambitious I may make another basket with more girly items since this one is more boyish.
If you sew for babies you really need to check out Barb's instructions for making these really cute burp cloths. I am planning on making some of these for the above basket. Thanks Barb!!
