****************Something new

I really like the colors in this cloth. Now don't ask me what it is. This yarn just showed up at my house one day. Thank you

This is my first pair of toddler socks. I did them on 1 circular needle. The magic loop method. I will be doing more like this.
I like the double points also but I do not care for using 2 circs. Just wanted to share my opinion

Socks going to Loves Cozy Closet for distribution

First mesh bag done with Bernat handicrafter cotton. It worked up very nicely. This will be going to Loves Cozy Closet for distribution.

Must continue to say that LovesManyCloths is the best group on the net.

**************Some of my Stash

I was asked to show some of my stash so here it is. The top is my working area where I keep some yarn and of course projects. On the arm of the chair is my big Cuddles, this one is for a dog. The next one is my box of mainly cotton yarn to be used mainly for cloths and at the bottom left is it box of donations that I just received from Brown Sheep Co. I just love their yarn and the company has really blessed our group. The white and natural is from Elmore Pisgah which makes the peaches and cream yarn. We are so blessed to have yarn companies provide us with donations.

The Brown Sheep is Lamb's Pride and it is mill end but looks like firsts. Under all this pink is some gold, orange and yellow.

***************Finished the bear blanket

This was really easy but it still took me a while to make. I kept looking at it and it said "please finish me" So I finally did. I had no pattern except for the bear. Did 4 of those and with Peggy's advice just did the rest of the blocks in double crochet with a made up border. I usually always need to use a pattern so I am really proud of this one. It is being sent to All Childrens Hospital in St Petersburg FL.

Come join us in the Loves House. Rooms have been added and we would love to have your able hands to help. Link is on my blog.
