Charity Items

I've been making some things for preemies; there's a woman collecting knit & crochet blankets, hats, & booties for preemies for the March of Dimes - they're for care packages they give to the mothers. Here are a few things I've made so far:

One blankets, some hats, and a couple pairs of booties.

I thought that hat pattern was just adorable when I found it online! The first pair of booties I made (the pink ones) I think are too big for preemies; I had to change yarn and hook size to make them small enough. I'm going to be making more; I've started a second blanket (it's granny-square style this time). It's a great use for the massive amount of yarn I have sitting around that I don't know what to do with.

Hey Jen! I just use the one blog now. the cafe de blogger one. I update that one pretty regularly; the other one I kinda forgot what name I had it under, I hadn't used it in a while. Anyway, it was good to hear from you. Oh, E-mail, right, I have just transfered schools and I haven't yet gotten the email address for it. I will soon though and when I do I will let you know what it is. Since we have last talked I have changed majors. I was culinary arts...um.. yea... I am now an Elementary Ed. major @ IUN. :) Anyway, I will fill you in when I can. I'll post a message on your blog. Now, it is time to watch "Scrubs," and sleep...Sleep is good. *_*
Have a good week.
PS. Your products look good :)
