Back to Sacred Heart

I'm working on things for Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire again. :) I went on a bereavement item kick for a bit around Freddy's birthday, and have been doing baby hats for at least the last week and a half. My favorite were the ones I knitted this little heart design into. Heart pattern can be found here:  Lacy Heart Design  It's not an actual hat pattern, I just worked it into the plain stockinette part of the hat (knit in the round, so remember to knit the purls if you try it!!) I did a coral colored one that I promptly misplaced (😕😕😕😒), then this white one, and then a multicolored one. I've also done some plain stockinette. I tried a new decrease on one that made an X on top instead of a slanting swirl that I really liked. And the burial things. I won't post them all, here here are a few: And the hat with the X decrease. I suppose that has to be all for now, Squish is crying in baby jail. It's supper time I think. She'

Holding Patterns

Hey everyone! Nothing new and exciting around here. I'm still knitting and crocheting. I dropped off 14 items I made, plus a box someone on Ravelry sent me to Helping Hands on Thursday. I started a baby blanket on Friday. I spent a good share of today tidying. I still have a load of laundry in the dryer waiting to be put away and one in the washer waiting to be dried. A man works from dawn to dusk, but a woman's work is never done.
