I am having fun creating all these crocheted items - keeps me busy, active and out of trouble! My newest projects are below - would love your comments on them!
Baby Hat and Mittens. I got these patterns off the web - they are just too cute! I made them both with Bernat baby soft yarn. This is for a lady in our church who just adopted a little girl - she is about 3 months old and so precious!
Both the hat and the thumbless mitten can be found at: Bev's Country Cottage
These are little "blueberry" bags - that was the name of the pattern. So cute - great for a small gift, potpourri, a trinket bag, etc. I just used some leftover yarn for this - it was fun to play with the colors and do different parts of the bag in different colors.
You can find the pattern for the blueberry bag at: Blueberry Bag
The next is a walker tote bag - it fits over the front rails of the walker - and is small, cute and holds whatever you might like to carry in it - a book, deck of cards, phone, pen and pad, etc. I hope to make a bunch of these to donate to the nursing home my sister in law, Kathy, works.
You can find the pattern for the tote bag at: Suzie's Yarnie Stuff
The last new item for this bunch is a set of wrist warmers for my friend Martha. They will match her shawl - made in Pound of Love yarn in antique white. They are warm, elegant and very soft. She works in an old mill building that has been refurbished - so it's a bit cold in New Hampshire with those old buildings - these wrist warmers and the new shawl should keep her warm and toasty!

Now onto the great news - Kathy entered a raffle for her BARC group. The group does rescue of Bernese Mountain Dogs - she won! A lot of nice things - but this one is a pleasure for me. It is hand spun yarn made from Bernese Mountain Dog fur - I am working with Kathy now as to what does she want me to make with it. The first picture is when I first unwrapped the package and the second picture is when we unraveled it to roll into the ball - it's soft and lovely and feels like petting a puppy!
Watch for another update - I actually made something for myself!!
