Another cute bag rescued from the thrift store. I wash these and give them to new members in our knit and crochet for charity group for their projects.
Yikes! I didn’t notice it was reversible with a nice pocket for row counter, stitch markers, etc.
Our church group does a lot of knitting and crochet for charity. We need to start now to have enough items for all our favorite charities this fall.
These cutie pies are toppers for hats for children. The kit comes with enough yarn for a hat or scarf for a child and an adorable topper (the scarf cleverly has a slot where the little animal gets pushed through-no struggling by a small child to wrap a scarf around the neck). These were on sale because… well… who wants to knit warm hats during the summer? We have two grade schools with disadvantaged children who come to school without hats, scarves or mittens. The ladies are excited to get a head start on providing them some warmth.
Arvada Christian Church recently filled up my truck with goodies for Arvada The Rising Church’s ministry for the disadvantaged and homeless.
Thank you to both churches!
Finally completed a knitting project! Two sets of mittens and one scarf for little girls who are in need. At least I got them done before summer!
Knitting at tire store waiting for my snow tires. Scarf to go with girl’s mittens knitted for disadvantaged child.
A woman was intrigued and is going to join our knit and crochet for charity group in January, yay!
These are my first mittens! They are a lot smaller than they look, for a first grader’s itty bitty hands.
I am also making a matching scarf. This is also my first scarf.
They will be given to a grade school child (I am sure a girl because of the bright pink!) at one of the two schools our church knitting and crocheting group is making mittens and scarves for disadvantaged children.
This project is rewarding. Another blogger told me that to receive something someone put time and effort into was a huge gift emotionally. Next up are some boys’ mittens in an appropriate boy color.
I am leaving the little strings for my teacher to make sure I finished properly and that these mittens don’t unravel away….
So after months and months of practicing knitting squares, trying to learn stitches and get some tension control, I am finally starting a real project.
Our knit and crochet for charity group is making mittens for underprivileged children at two elementary schools. I am making mittens with a matching scarf.
I am also learning how to knit in the round, yay – no seam to sew!
Can’t tell how my tension is because I have only done a few rows:)
I’ll let you know if I can figure out the pattern when I get to the thumb, sigh.
Anyway, wish me luck……
