Because it's fun. Maryse wants to drive the fashion police crazy, not the department, just one officer. This is my contribution Maryse and I'll continue to help you out cause it's fun.
Why do we reach for the camera at times when before blogging, we never would have reached for the camera?
Because everyday life can be interesting, and we love to share it. These were taken around 5:45AM on Saturday. I love seeing a full moon first thing in the morning. This is how I see it right from where I frequently sit.
Why do we knit for a cause to help out someone we don't even know?
Because it feels good. And frankly, sometimes because there are prizes. I don't think it's a secret that I am a certifiable prize
These are chemo caps for Kate. All done. Many folks have made lots more, but this is alot for me. There's still time to make the end of February deadline.
Case in point, this is a skein of Regia that I won from Rabbitch. She's still collecting hats for her cause. The rants alone are well worth a visit to her blog. But really, those of you who make things for others know the winning happens as soon as our creations are put in the mail.
I'm looking forward to making something for myself now, as well as, an afghan for each of my daughters. They picked what they wanted after I tortured them into browsing many knit and crochet books. Kate's picked the Moderne Blanket from Mason-Dixon Knitting (good pick Kate)-and Megan picked a crocheted American Flag from an old Book of mine-yay Meg! So after all those hats, I'm ready for a square now Mrs. Zimmerman. So what was the next project?
Preemie caps! These are for The Betties, my very best knitting group. One of the girls has this mom who works in this hospital and they have this need. I feel the need to stitch for my buds. They're also making squares for Warm Up America and I'll make mine tonight with them.
One last question. Why do we insist on knitting/crocheting for every reason we can find?
Because we have friends. This is baby H who arrived last month. His grandmother has been a friend of mine for almost 30 years. H's momma is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. I made a pink one of these for H's big sister too. I look forward to making them both more things. Welcome H you cutie pie, you!!!
OK, so I have learned through knitting and blogging that my life is more fun, interesting, focused and sometimes, there are prizes and presents involved. Most important, I have discovered I have made some really great friends.
