Yes, I'm still around. Thank you, Lord! I'm still battling for my health, so there are days when I'm drained and crafting takes too much effort & energy from me. However, at times I need to keep my hands occupied. Therefore, I've been doing some knitting and crocheting. I'm definitely NOT an expert in this area, so I mainly repeat the same design. :) And I can only knit using a loom. ;)
While I've been off of work and concentrating on my health, I decided to knit caps for children battling cancer. This is a cause that's near and dear to me. I knitted 30+ beanies in baby to teen sizes. Some of the beanies were made using 2 different colors of yarn. Here is a sample:
(I apologize for the wrinkled background and bad pictures. Overcast today.)
(Materials: Simply Caron yarn in various colors; round knitting looms, loom hook)
The following chemo caps were crocheted using Simply Caron yarn, and a J hook. These are adult sizes, and I used a pattern by Sandra Huffines. I have a friend battling cancer, so I made her some caps, too.
Friends, this is all for today. Wising you LOTS of health and peace.
