May 2011 Hospice Batch
These are the items I had for the May 2011 Hospice delivery.
The lap blanket to the left was made from Mulberry Caron Dazzleaire which I unraveled from a hideous sweater I had made long ago. The pattern is Fabulous Fans by Rita Weiss in Leisure Arts #3693, Afghans by the Pound. The lap blanket to the right is of some mystery acrylic worsted that my aunt and uncle picked up at an estate sale. The pattern is Diamond Ripple by Anne Halliday in Leisure Arts #108214, Afghans for All Seasons, Book 2.
These are both my own Crossed Double Crochet Ripple Blanket pattern. The one on the left is with Lion Brand Pound of Love Bubble Gum and Pastel Pink. The one on the right is with Heather Green Caron Dazzleaire from the same hideous sweater as the Fabulous Fans above.
I had some yarn leftover from a baby shower gift so made two preemie sets in the same (somewhat modified) pattern.
Several people had donated preemie blankets to this batch without hats, so I made hats with coordinating yarn using my Basic Baby Hat pattern.
These are two simple hats to go with blankets others made using my Simple Lines Baby Hats pattern.
This is another neutral hat to go with a blanket given by someone else. I will probably design a coordinating blanket for this one and publish the patterns in the future.
Thank you for your donation…beautiful and so much appreciated!
I’ve throughly enjoyed your web site and copied the lace edged chemo caps and the ribbing and lace chemo caps patterns . I plan on knitting them and donating to our chemo cap group. A group of knitters and crocheters have made and donated over 600 caps so far this year to the hopices and chem clinics in our town of Flint, mi. there is such a need. Thanks ever so much for your patterns.
Sue….if you read this please let me know how I can reach you. I’m from Flint and will be there Sunday for a bit. Would love to reach out to you and your group. I am running the hospice group here in Nashville and always looking for more ideas and inspiration.
