  4. The Warmth for Warriors organization is again calling for anyone to help crochet, knit, or sew mini handmade Christmas stockings for the troops. Here is the link to the 2015 Stocking Drive. Last year over 1600 miniature stockings filled with soaps, toiletries, and candies were sent overseas to our troops as a little Christmas gifts. I just crocheted this stocking and am working on more. I try and do some during the summer and more in the fall and winter months. This is my 4th year participating in the drive. You can use any materials or patterns to make the stockings and just try and make them about 6 inches long. I will post more of my crocheted stockings as soon as I get some photos taken. Please jump in if you'd like to help out the project. Thanks!
  5. Here is a pattern I created for a helmet hat for soldiers and our troops. This is a quick and easy pattern that can be adapted to add a cuff. Here is another hat I crocheted but added two more rounds before the trim for a cuff.
