I made her a prayer shawl to help her get through Chemotherapy.
Jo lost her battle with cancer December 2009. Love and miss you Jo-girl~

It took (and I'm only guessing here) about 80 grocery sacks that I cut down and connected to make Plarn.
Learn how to make plarn here: http://hellejorgensen.typepad.com/gooseflesh/2007/02/plastic_bag_yar.html
I'll post the pattern link as soon I as I find it again!

I donated them on November 4th. I try to knit up between 10-20 before I donate them. If you want to help support my efforts, I accept baby/fingering weight soft yarn donations!

Here is Lisa's Prayer Shawl. The pattern is from the book: Knitting into the Mystery by Susan S Izard.
Yarn Used: Carnival and Rainbow Ribbon
Lisa's Prayer Purse. I don't recall where this pattern came from.
Yarn: Rainbow Ribbon
This is Veronica (Me) modeling Lisa's Prayer Shawl and holding her Prayer Purse.
Oh, and did I say I had both these items blessed and prayed over by her Pastor just for her?
Lisa, I hope you had an incredibly Happy Birthday.

At my folks' request, I made this because grandpa gets cold when dining out. The restuarants keep the AC going strong inside when it's really warm outside and sometimes it's just too cold.
Pattern Source: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/clothbrocade.htm
Pattern Alterations: I cast on 130 stitches, and went with a seed stitch border/divider lines. The pattern is King Charles Brocade. I did three sets for the corners and the middle panel contains 5 reps of the brocade. :D
The blanket matches the fingerless gloves that I made for him at the beginning of this year. (See earlier post)
Blanket Dimensions: 25in X 36in
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft-Sage

The hat is the same yarn as the blanket although it's difficult to tell by the picture. It also has a blue teddy bear bead on it. :D

To celebrate this event, I have made a reversible teddy bear baby blanket and hospital hat for for the little darling!
To match the blanket, I sewed a teddy bear bead on the beanie.
The reversible blanket (also listed below) is posted here: Reversible Teddy Bear Blanket Pattern
The hat pattern is from: March 2007 Creative Knitting
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft-Mint Green

James and Beth Christensen are expecting a little bundle of joy, a boy, in September 2008.
To celebrate the event, I knitted a little something to go with the baby theme they have selected, Airplanes.
Since I couldn't knit an airplane into the little hat, I attached an airplane bead to it. =^..^=
The reversible blanket is created using the dishcloth pattern posted here: http://knitalittlestore.blogspot.com/2008/06/airplane-free.html with a seed stitch border.
The hat is from Creative Knitting Magazine, March 2007 issue.
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft- Light Blue

Here my Grandpa is wearing the gloves as he smiles for the picture with my Aunt Char.
I started these last evening, finished up late this morning and gave them to him this afternoon!
For a closer view, I am modeling the fingerless gloves I made for my Grandpa! Tris took the picture for me!
