Here's what I've been working on.
It's a crochet chemo cap, or "happy cap", as I've named it. This one is made with CottonEase from LionBrand. You'll understand the name, if you've ever received or read feedback from recepients of a cap for themselves, or a family member. It's a small gesture for me to make, and a super fine feeling for the person who needs more color, smiles, and comfort in their time of need. I'm also knitting a few more, but I just had to share one of my favorites with you.
Since we're talking crochet, my copy of CrochetToday! arrived just in time to dispel the winter chill and anticipation of the impending icey storm heading our way. It's chock full of spring colors and fun projects. Check your local craft or yarn store for an issue.
A few knitting notions for you from Patternworks.
Magnetic Stitch Marker Holder Set and Prismatic Stitch Markers, and a super cute and portable brocade small project bag. So fun and festive.
