My beloved congregation here (which is also Charity's) is in the middle of a really wonderful service project: collecting handmade hats for the kids at D.C. Children's Hospital Oncology Unit. The goal is to make at least 500 by mid-March. My crafty alter-ego doesn't get too many chances to come out and play, but my little fingers have been busily crocheting for the last several weeks, whenever I happen to find a free moment without a kid or a dirty dish or a moving box in my hands. And if I use a big enough hook, I can bang out a chunky little topper in one episode of Downton Abbey or a round trip drive to our brother's house in the suburbs (but only if Dave is doing the actual driving part...). It's done a marvelous job keeping my hands and heart toasty during this miserable cold snap.
|Can you guess which yarn Hettie picked? I suppose if she loves it, some other 4-year-old might, too :-)|
let me know and I'll send you all the details!
