  1. I updated with a photo of a hat made for a NICU donation - Mickey Mouse. I want to make a few more and then some Minnie mouse hats too. http://yarnjeanniescrochetcache.blogspot.com/2016/02/hat-for-preemie-nicu-project.html
  2. Kathryn, I started a few hats and one blanket, but thought I should check with you. The blanket is basically a larger size granny square. I'm wondering about the holes in it. I don't think it's suitable for a preemie or newborn. If I make it larger, do you think a one-year old child or a toddler could use it?
  3. Kathryn, I've gotten away from crocheting lately and want to jump back in. I was thinking I would make a few more of those baby jackets. i hope that was something they could use at the hospital.

  6. I let my feelings tell me what I want to work on. Right now, I'm making a sweetheart ripple afghan, one of my favorite patterns by Kim Guzman. It's for my daughter-in-law in her wedding colors of pink and gray. Some of the things I've finished recently are: a shawl to be mailed to someone who recently showed me some kindness, some baby items that have been mailed to California for a nicu, and items that I list in my Etsy store in the hopes of off-setting some of the cost of the yarn. I've designed a few things myself. But I'm not heavy into designing yet. I do have an idea floating ar

  17. I crochet because I love it. Why I love it is more difficult to answer. I think that being able to make something amazing using a hook and yarn is like art, like taking a piece of paper and a pencil and producing something you want to share with others. My passion is crocheting for children right now. To see the looks on their faces when you give them that toy or blanket just lights me up from the inside.
  18. I have a problem with a commenter: she keeps asking me for a pattern. I've told her where to purchase it but she keeps writing. Therefore I've posted a note to my blog outlining my policy of honoring copyrights and not sending copies of patterns to others: http://yarnjeanniescrochetcache.blogspot.com/2013/03/i-have-blog-problem.html

  21.
