Cooking Cowls!

Happy almost 2013!  I'm getting an early start on 2013 charity knitting and cooking to celebrate.


The cowls are for Annie's Gifts for Chemo and the cooking is for the cold blustery new years day coming our way.  I cast 40 sts on US size 9 needles with Lion Brand Yarn Wool Ease (worsted weight) in a simple garter stitch in three different colors and then joined after about 18". If you decided to switch to another stitch pattern in the center, for instance, make sure you have the proper amount of stitches to incorporate it.  What could be more inviting than a comfy warm and wonderful cowl and quick stash buster for the new year? Add a button, experiment with color and allow your imagination and creativity to guide you.

The beans and mix for the soup is from Frontier Soups (sausage and bean soup)  It's a tasty start to the new year, and you just add a few extra ingredients with spicey sausage (or go vegetarian).  It will be a great meal for a cold wintery day.

Celebrate, reflect and start the year with gusto...toss out the old and disfunctional and bring in the new possibilities.

Happy 2013 everyone!

Crafty Wonderland...

Thanks for the well wishes everyone!  They have definitely helped me to a speedy recovery.  I'm happy to say that I'm off the crutches and getting back to normal...whatever that is!  Today, I wanted to take a few moments to share some sites that caught my eye.  This season always brings out the crafty charity in our hearts, so why not indulge in a crafty good time for ourselves and for charity.  It's a great way to heal the heavy hearts that we all share after the recent events.  Make something special, share it and bring a little joy into someone's life this season.
Hugs to all of my crafty friends and your big hearts.

Kid sized and almost ready to ship...

Kid sized slippers knit for The Pink Slipper Project...
Recently, I came across a Pink Slipper Project post on Facebook putting the word out that they needed certain items for their latest project. It's so wonderful to see how the knitting (and crochet, and sewing) communities jump in to help out and pitch in any way they can when needleart charities really need their help.
By the way, you may have noticed that the little green slipper is missing the mate.  It's patiently waiting for me to pick up my needles and finish tonight. There's also a comfy cowl going in the package, as well. 
Visit The Pink Slipper Project website to find out more about what they are doing and ways you can help.
Have a beautiful weekend of giving and receiving love, respect, and creativity.
Note:  Joyce at The Pink Slipper Project is home now from the hospital.  Visit their facebook page for updates on her progress, and please keep Joyce in your prayers and thoughts.  Thank you.
