If you were hoping to donate to a worthy cause for women’s reproductive rights in the U.S., you might as well get a hand-made, crochet shawl as part of the deal. Right?
I’ll be adding more photos of the shawl to the auction. But if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me with any questions. I’ll update the auction to reflect additional information that readers want to know before bidding.
And thank you Meredith for the great idea. I’m hopeful that it works and raises at least a fair amount of money for a good cause.
As noted, I started back to work on the Millamia Baby Blanket.
I’ve finished about 5.5″ so far, which is one full ball of Millamia Naturally Baby Soft yarn is 50% cotton and 50% soy. I’m making mine in colorway, Softest Silver.
The blanket will end up being about 27″ wide (not including a border I will add) and probably about the same length. I’m quite pleased with how it’s turning out and I’m enjoying the knitting.
I also finished cranking the second orange sock.
I ran out of yarn on the second sock, so I did a wildly contrasting toe with leftover yarn. These socks were an experiment. I made a very loose fabric, so the socks are oversized and slouchy. There are also a couple of mistakes which I fixed in a bit of a ham-handed way. But they’re for me, so it doesn’t matter much.
