"Hive Creative Challenge" Spring tootsie warmers...

Spring Tootsie Warmers for Creating The Hive Spring Challenge 2011

One of the many perks of being in the Creating The Hive community is participating in challenges and sharing your creativity.  My project for this challenge is a pair of crochet socks made with Supersocke 100 from Online (part of my event yarn stash)  and my favorite Tulip Etimo crochet hook I found at  You can also find these hooks at Joann Fabrics and Crafts. They are a great relief to your tired digits.

While I was making these socks, I decided the weight and softness of these socks would make the perfect item to include in a recent Ravelry charity group that I'm participating in , Annie's Gifts for Chemo, created by a super sweet lady, Kathleen Greco for cancer patients.  Hospitals can be sooo cold and sometimes you need a comfy pair of socks for bed, too.  I first met Kathleen at Stitches East a few years ago, but had always been a fan of Jelly Yarns.   

Thanks to Melissa (the Queen Bee) and her team of busy bees for coming up and organizing another fun challenge. You can't see me, but I'm giving you the official beehive salute. BuzzzBuzz!

Grab your invitation to Creating The Hive here.  It's a free, festive and delightfully creative community.

Check out Part One and Part Two of Kathleen's knit1fortheroad interview.

I hope you're enjoying the abundance of Spring,

Not what we have But what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.” (Elbert Hubbard)
