A Crocheted Sweater

This is a photo of a sweater my daughter just completed. It is the first one she has ever made, and it
 is crocheted. She used  bulky yarn, and a size L hook, and this sweater  will go to a charity she supports.  Since before the Holidays she has been making loomed and crocheted  items, such as hats, scarves and afghan squares, etc. I have given her a few things to send, also. These items go to Africa to a group called "Knit-a-Square", an online group that makes clothing items and blankets for AIDS victim's  children and orphans.

  We had snow on Tuesday, it amounted to about two inches. I love to see the snow, but hate the temps in the teens!!  I think everyone I know is hoping for an early Spring this year! God Bless!!

I really hate winter!

It has been very cold, even colder than most Januarys, and we have had more precipitation than most winters also. I am staying inside as much as I can, but still have to drive my son back and forth to work everyday. Have not sewn much, have not knitted much, but have managed to make a few crocheted  Prayer Shawls for the hospital. No Prayers and Squares meeting since December 2nd. I feel like I am in hibernation. Awful winters make us appreciate Spring more, don't you think?  Thank God for hot tea!!  God Bless.....
