All Squared Out

8 rugs finish and still more squares to put together   They are all packed up ready to send off to various charities. 

I played around with one of them adding a band that extends beyond the width of the rug, put in some button holes and buttons -- voila -- a wheelchair lapghan.  It secures around the waist to stop it from falling off.  This one is going to a nursing home!

I'll definately be making more of these :)

knit4charities group has a special project going this month too.  We are knitting or crocheting breast prostheses for mastectomy survivors.  The project is called Operation Bosom Buddies.  I have made 4 bosom's for this project.  Might get a few more done yet, they are fun to make and so much appreciated by the receivers as they are soft and light to wear.

I am in the process of trying to use up boxes of knitting machine wool that kind people have given me.  I dusted off the old knitting machine, oiled it up and read up the instructions  -- yep it's amazing how easy it is to forget!!!   Anyway, I am making cat/dog rugs for animal rescue.  They are easy - just a long strip of knitting folded in half and sewn together.  My dog has had one of these rugs for 6 years now, they wash up and wear well -- great for puppies who scratch around.

Gosh I didn't realise how busy I've been -- crocheted squares, soap saver bags, monster sock puppets all managed to get made as well as booties and mittens.  Did I really have time to do all that!!!

Time to put my feet up and have a cuppa!
