Learning to knit

The round scrubbys are knit on a loom. The glasses case and wash cloth were my first attempts at needle knitting... I'm pleased.

Charity for Charity

This logo was donated to a charity group that knits/crochets/sews items for places like the NICU at The Women's Hospital in Greensboro, NC and The American Childrens Home, homeless people, individuals we find that are in need, and most recently baby blankets for a mission trip to Belize. Some members just donate money or materials, and the stitchers donate time and skill to make things like baby blankets, hats, scarves, and whatever else we find that someone needs. I joined the group after I made this, it gives me a good excuse to buy yarn and knit.
