This weeks finished objects were made about a month ago, I just never gotten around to posting them for Finished Object Friday.
These are preemie hats that will be given to a local hospital in my area. It just happens that my mother’s a nurse at that hospital too. No pattern was used. I’ll hold off donating them until I have about thirty hats. Synthetic yarn is what the hospital requires for all the crocheted and knitted preemie hats. Over the past several months I’ve gradually increased my supply of charity stash yarn. The yarns I selected are incredibly soft. All the yarns in that stash are either 100% man made fibers or a cotton/synthetic blend.
Say hello to my knitted Elizabeth cowl. I still need to block this cowl. I found this knitted cowl in the book Wendy Knits Lace. It’s the first time that I ever made a lace project with worsted weight yarn. For some reason I was thinking that title belonged to my Diamonds and Pearls shawl, but obviously I was wrong since I’m still working on that shawl.
This cowl is tucked away in my gift bin. I only make items for those that are craft worthy. Currently I’m unsure of who will be receiving this as a Christmas gift. Decisions, decisions… But, the good news is that most of my handcrafted Christmas gifts (crocheted, embroidery, knitting, and sewing) are almost complete. Yeah! I started working on my Christmas list in April.
