WIP Wednesday~ 7/11

Prayer Shawl
 I have a knit and crochet project to show today.  My daughter says she doesn't have to ask me what I am working on any more, because prayer shawls and baby items are "all I do."  ; )   Yes, I do a lot of them.  They give me a lot of pleasure, to make something for someone else, since I can't do the things for my family as well as I'd like.  I think that is one reason I will never sell my items.  This is my mission.
Baby Dress




So I am repurposing yarn from previous projects I have made, that I no longer want.  The yarn for the shawl used to be a sweater, and the yarn for the dress used to be doll clothes for my daughter that has grown out of that stage.  I like to know someone else will use them well.

That baby dress is really cute. Its great that you are able to recycle yarn so it will find a new loving home.

The colours in your prayer shawl are lovely. It's a great idea to recycle your yarn, then someone else can get pleasure from your creations. Have a crafty week.

I had an idea for a prayer shawl out of granny squares but haven't started it yet. I think we are getting a little low on the shawls at church so I should get busy.

that's a beautiful idea to use things that are no longer wanted to make new beautiful things! I love the colours.
