February Yarn Give Away at Mint Hill

Posted by Picasa

The last meeting of this month will always be remembered. Everyone was surprised by Cecile who brought beautiful yarn to give away. She indeed touched us. She is currently just crocheting/knitting for newborns in need and is happy to give yarn away she knows she won't use. She mentioned that it would really bless her if the yarn was used to bless someone as well.

She has been making baby hats and mailing them to Newborns in Need. Click Here to get to the website.

It's Heart's Month

I've always liked hearts, that is hand crafted hearts. I've sewn hearts, appliqué hearts, quilted hearts and knitted hearts. Lately I've been crocheting, so I set out to look for crochet hearts both in books and online.

I found a book in my library Get Hooked: Simple Steps to Crochet Cool Stuff by Kim Werker which had a heart pattern.

Using a large crochet hook (size H)and worsted weight Sugar and Cream cotton yarn yielded a coaster size heart. Instead of a card give a heart coaster that will bring joy for years to come to a special friend.
