Updates for bookkeeping








You know, sometimes procastinating can be a good thing. Had the box here address for HAP, as well as for Lil Troopers. Thought I could squeeze a bit more in each box and so.




8 more rectangles for HAP, 2 each, brown, green, teal, and dark red-burgundy (though in the picture it looks like rose ?). A variety of stitches. sc. dc, v-stitch and combination thereoff.




Got one more poncho made, and newborn vest. Susie modeled the vest ...she didn't want to give it up, said it matched her hair. lol


Finished the brightest colored lapghan for Sissie's nursing home project.

**Just back from post office, so all will go out first thing tomorrow am**




Working a green tweedy scarf for Homeless Veterans. Hope to have it with the tanish multi colored one in a few days. Tanish one shown in previous post, though here's a better close up, so you can see the colors better.

  2. Thanks for the visit....the design is a little teacup....and I guess Mel has 6 all together, I need to do the other 5. Maybe that will be my nighttime projects when the kids are asleep and it takes up so little time, that I can finish one then go to bed...

  3. You should have let Susie keep that vest...it really looks like it was made for her!

    About that crossing guard - the same thing crossed my mind, she should have full attention on the kids....I must say though in the few seconds that I saw her - no kids were in sight of her. I bet when kids came into range she dropped the knitting like a hot potato...sure hope so :)

  4. Sandy, when do you sleep. I love the little vest so much and Hakucho is right she should keep it.

  5. What a nice variety of things. Beautiful. Really nice job. I have to get on the ball and get some rectangles and hats done myself and I want to do one of those cute ponchos.

  6. Again, I have to say wow! You are really getting so many beautiful items finished.

    As far as the wrist warmers go, I usually wear mine in the car when it is too cold for nothing but too warm for mittens. You could also use them indoors in a cold building (which I have also done). They're great because they leave your fingers free for typing or whatever. However, I don't know of a charity that accepts them. I'm going to donate mine to my crochet guild to sell to make money for the club. They are usually popular items when we do a sale. And you are right - they are great for using up odds and ends of yarn. If you google "wooly wrist warmers" you should find the pattern with no problem.

    I like the idea of knitting for homeless veterans.

  8. Wow Sandy. You've been a busy lady! I too think that Susie should get to keep the vest. It looks like it was made just for her. :)

  9. I *love* the bright colored afghan! How beautiful!! Susie is such a great model :) Those ponchos are so cute!! Do you just make them out of granny squares? Anything special other than the way you put them together? I should really start doing some crochet for charities. I usually give away everything I make anyway, but it's usually to family members. The past few years I have crocheted all the x-mas gifts (which I need to get started on asap!). But once the x-mas crocheting is over I really need to teach my 11-year old daughter how to crochet and we can do some charity work together!

  10. Hey girl, have I told you how much I admire your heart. I just feel a kindred spirit in you and I love that. I really appreciate when you check in on me and I love all the kindness you give to others. Sometime you need to know the great qualities you hold, I want you to know...
