I thought I should start my blog by listing a couple of projects I have accomplished before I had a Blog. I have been trying to keep a record on my Pinterest board, From My Craft Room
Preemie hats, mitts, booties for The Crochet Crowd (mikeysmail) Donation Drive for Crafting for a Cure. 2012.
Patterns here: Red Heart Preemie Hats
Special Olympics 2012 Scarf Project
They're off to the Special Olympics in style!
Clipping from our Local Newspaper
"Thanks to many local 'knitters', Saugeen Shores' Special Olympians are off to the National Games in Alberta in style in their 'Olympic Scarves'.
More than 650 Special Olympics athletes will travel to St. Albert and Jasper, Alberta for the 2012 Special Olympics Canada Winter Games being held from February 28 to March 3.
There are eight local athletes in all who will be attending - five curlers, a speed skater, a Nordic Skier and a snowshoe competitor.
The Special Olympics organization put out a national request for 2500 scarves to be made for the athletes, their families, supporters, coaches and volunteers in the powder blue, white and red colour combination of the games.
Spearheaded by Terri Plaunt in Saugeen Shores, several crocheters and knitters, including one gentleman, stepped in to take up the challenge, knitting more than 50 scarves, each unique in design."
I actually did mine in Tunisian Stitch and added the year on one of them. All the Ladies and Gentleman in the back row are my friends who offered to help me make all the scarves. They made some pretty special scarves for some pretty special and wonderful people.
