A Bonus for Charity Knitting

As any of my regular readers know, my charity crafting of choice is for Alice’s Embrace, because I have a personal connection to the cause. But this month, there is a little extra reward for getting current projects done and mailed in:

I thought I’d share since I just finished these two blankets, and if you need a little extra boost to get some things finished and mailed in to them, this is the perfect time. The contest ends June 30.

First Charity Mailing of 2018

Journey - Alices Embrace
Journey – Alices Embrace

As you may remember, I lost a dear friend close to this time last year to Alzheimer’s, and on the very same day, met the lovely people from Alice’s Embrace at Stitches West. Since then, I have been knitting (and crocheting) items for them, on and off throughout the year.

They have a great selection of patterns for knitters and crocheters with varying levels of difficulty. So far, out of all the patterns I’ve knit, Journey has been my favorite.

If you are looking for a charity to contribute to in 2018, I highly recommend Alice’s Embrace. As an added bonus, it is alot of fun to keep an eye on their Facebook page because you never know when your item will pop up. And as before, if you’re making things, please post in my Ravelry group so I can see your items, just for fun.

FO: KAL Blanket + A Peek of New Project

Alice's Embrace blanket

Thank you all for your support of Alice’s Embrace. When I started this KAL/CAL, I received lovely messages and encouragement, so thank you! It was much appreciated. I am going to do this as an ongoing thing – I always need to have a project going for when I want to relax and not do the work of designing.

You are still welcome at any time to jump in and knit or crochet shawls and blankets with me. If you do, please stay in touch, and post photos in my Ravelry group or on Facebook so we can cheer each other on.

I really love the patterns and they work up very quickly, as they are all done on size 13 needles and use chunky weight machine-washable yarn.

And on to the next project…
