I know, I know...it's been almost two months since my last posting. After I last posted I started a job and I found it hard to find the time to update. I did, however, slowly finish the project that I began with the pink yarn. I made a lovely prayer shawl that was intended to be a give-away here but I came across someone in need of it and gave it to her. I didn't get a picture of it but I have started another one in the same color and when that one is finished, I will take a picture and post it here. I thought about doing it in holiday colors but I just love the pink yarn and another donation was made to the Susan G. Komen foundation.
There's just something comforting about making prayer shawls. I have made a few over the years without having anybody in mind. But it's nice to have them to give. The same goes for newborn hats. I just feel so peaceful when I'm making them because I know they will be going on a newborn's little head at the hospital, whether in the NICU or regular nursery. Making those just takes my mind off of everyday issues for a little while, I can just "zone" out for a while.
So on that note, I am currently working on hats for the grandchildren, nieces and nephews. I just might throw some in for my children, too. We shall see.
Until next time, keep on hooking.
