Last month, I started working on hairpin lace crochet projects with a group of ladies from my church who either knit or crochet. I got in on the tail end of a mission project for an orphanage in Mexico and made three hats and scarves with hairpin lace crochet.
Now we are focusing on a mission that is in Vancouver. We are making things for our Veterans who are in the hospital but can shop in a special room of donated things and send two to their families free of charge or postage.
So far, I have 4 neck scarves made for this -- two I have already blogged about. The two latest are:
i also have all the rows crocheted for two cape shawls -- one is white and silver and the other, a pale blue and silver. i am now crocheting the rows together with silver crochet cotton. I am liking what i see but am not ready to photograph them. I have NEVER crocheted with crochet thread in my life! Well, before now, I mean. I am also trying to learn to make straight rows crocheting dish cloths.
My latest project is an afghan for a girl's bed. it will be all pale colors but multicolored. i have 4 rows of 300 made so far. It will take at least 12-15 more rows. I am using baby yarn for it. It will fit a twin size bed.It will be awhile before I get it finished. I hope I get it finished in the next two weeks so it can go to the Vets before Christmas.
