  6. Here is a round ripple I crochet for the Warmth for Warriors blanket drive. It is 43 inches wide so should be a good lapghan. The center is some Caron blue yarn and then I used a Yarn Bee Sugarwheel skein in what they call “That’s my Jam” colorway. Then I just added some blues and black in RHSS I had to finish it off.
  7. Here is my first Christmas stockings I crocheted for the Warmth for Warriors 2016 sock drive. These 6 inch mini Christmas socks will be filled with little toiletries and goodies for the troops.

  8. 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!
  9. Here is my mini Rings of Change lapghan I crocheted for the Warmth for Warriors group. This was a fun and interesting pattern as every round is a different stitch. I used a lot of scraps I had and almost 2 supersaver skeins of Red Heart in buff color to finish this up. It measures 45 inches wide using the mini version of the Rings of Change pattern with a J hook.
  10. The Warmth for Warriors is kicking off their 2013 Mini Christmas Stocking Project. Their goal is 2000 mini socks for the troops. They fill the mini stockings with a small bar of soap, shampoo, and/or body wash and are sending them to the troops as a little Christmas gift. You can crochet, knit or sew the stockings which need to be about 6 inches long. Here are a few samples of some of the socks I have crocheted and sewn for the drive. Here is the recycled denim stocking tutorial if you like to make some of them. So if you are interested in joining us in this drive, any help would be greatly appreciated. This is a worthy cause and we need lots of Christmas stockings to complete this project. Thank you in advance for your help.
  11. Here are three more mini Christmas stockings I crocheted from different scrap yarn. These are so fun to do and work up quickly. These stockings are for the 2013 Christmas stocking drive for the Warmth for Warriors group.
  12. Here are some men's hats I did for the Warmth for Warriors. I used the Got Spirit hat pattern and just did an extra round so the hats were a bit longer. The oatmeal with blue striped ones are wool and the camo ones are RH platoon camo yarn.
