ABC Wednesday - Year 2 --"Y"
Go here if you would like to join us for ABC Wednesday. . . Mrs Nesbitt
Y" is for YARN! It helps me to make my hairpin lace projects. I couldn't do without it. Here's a few skeins of yarn that I haven't used yet.
These are some of the YARN projects I have worked on recently: many neck scarves, 1 heavyweight shawl and 1 baby blanket. We're having a Christmas in July sale the last two Sundays of July to help pay for the new piano in the VA hospital chapel. We will get matching funds from Thrivent for our profit. It is all clear profit because all the yarn we use is donated. Five other ladies are making other needlework things too, including Christmas pot holders, alligator neck scarves, hats, and dish cloths. Others have helped to make quilts.
These are YARN projects I did earlier in the year that went to an orphanage,
to the VA hospital Christmas bazaar
and college students.
As long as I have yarn in front of me, I will make hairpin lace crochet items. I have all the strips of YARN made for two different cape shawls but I have to crochet them together with regular thin crochet cotton which is a new experience for me.
