I took a break from crocheting the Friendship Bracelets for a few days.
During the break, I organized the bracelets. It took a few hours to measure, sort according to length, then bag according to length. I hope that helps make the distribution process easier for those who give them to the children in Russia.
While I was sorting, I decided to crochet my second hyperbolic ball of bliss.
Are you looking for a(nother) good cause to craft for?
Have you heard about Craft Hope?
Craft Hope "is a love inspired project designed to share handmade crafts with those less fortunate. It is our hope to combine our love for crafting and desire to help others into a project to make a difference around the world."
Their projects are awesome and their dedication to helping and sharing is awe-inspiring.
I'm crocheting friendship bracelets for their Project #12, to benefit children living in orphanages in Russia.
If you're interested in this project or you just want to see the other cool projects Craft Hope facilitates, check out their blog here: Craft Hope. And their Facebook page here: Craft Hope on Facebook.
Here are pictures of the bracelets I've crocheted so far, 48 and counting.
In late October 2009, our family went to lunch at Showmar's. It's one of our favorite places to eat, though it's been several months since we've eaten there.
On one occasion neither my husband nor I had any cash to tip our waiter, Darius. So I offered to crochet a warm scarf for him. He said yes.
I put the photo and pattern on Ravelry soon after. And just now, I remembered that we aren't supposed to include patterns in our Ravelry notes. We're supposed to have a link to the pattern, for either a page or a PDF file.
So I'm gonna put the pattern here so I can make this post the link "page".
