Bookmarks and Baby Hats

my most recent craft pile got started for the Mennonite Relief Sale, but several other events have come up, such as need for sympathy card tuck-ins, and a birthday.

I noticed last year that knit hats don’t sell very well in the Spring, so I’m not making so many right now. my best exception is the little hats for a baby or doll, which I have learned to peg loom knit nice and fast

these will go to newborns at the hospital

All these, and more not in pictures, are projects completed in the last week.  I’m also trying to crochet some tote bags from a big bag of donated rug/craft yarn.  The first one was admired at my Yarn Group, so I will likely go on to do more.  As I mentioned, warm hats are more welcome at a different season of year.

And now that I have acknowledged that my blog is still here, I’ll get going on household chores and mebbe see what’s happening at FaceBook.

    You switched to multi-colored thread for the bookmarks – love the colors! Maybe you used this thread before, but some of these really stand out! Go going there, lady!
    (ps: glad to see you finally remembered those of us who look forward to reading your blog…daily, hint-hint!)

    the bookmark with the red and tan, second from the right went to a gal whose mom passed away after years of illness

    I sent the card in actual mail, rather than putting it into the family’s church slot
    It seems a bit more proper etiquette…

    She said that having it come that way, in a pastel envelope with a stamp on the corner, and the bookmark falling out as she opened it, made the gift all the more special.

    Online is a good way to communicate, but sometimes, old-fashioned is the way to go.
