Here are more of what I am planning on giving to the single mothers that are members of ESTHER Single Mother’s Outreach Ministry. Some of the items will be given to their children because I made them in a smaller size.
I have been crocheting since last November for Christmas 2017. Why so early a start? I was crocheting gift for my family then was told we were not getting together for Christmas. I then decided that I would gift them to the single mothers I used to attend a weekly Bible study with. So now I had a good start on what I am giving to them to say thank you for being a good friend.
Another reason I am crocheting for this group is because I have a large amount of yarn that my husband thinks it in the way of is hobby, trains. Some of my yarn is stored underneath his model train set up on a platform. I would like to use much of the yarn as I can so I can store less used items there. Much of the yarn used was left over from other projects or part of a skein some one had given me. This is a good why to make use of all this yarn.
In the slide show is just some of what I have been crocheting. All items are finished at the time I posted the pictures.
I have a need for a manikin so I can take better pictures of hats. I crochet much better than I take pictures of what I crochet.
