One of the projects was a blanket for Joseph and I made a baby girl blanket because I did not know if Joe and Naomi were having a boy or a girl. I gave the boy blanket to Joseph and I put the baby girl blanket in my hope chest.
I made the baby boy blanket first because I had a feeling they were going to have a boy first.
Working on my yarn projects is relaxing while listening to music or while my mom reads aloud. If you don't get car sick, you can even work on knitting/crocheting while on a road trip.
What helps me to get projects done fast is if I have a deadline to get them done by.
Its really easy to make a washcloth in one day or to make a couple coasters.
A washcloth is a really good small project for a beginner, whether for someone learning to knit or crochet.
If you don't know how to knit or crochet and you don't know anyone who can, ask people at your church or try checking your public library for classes. If you still can't find anywhere to learn I used YouTube a couple times to learn how to make some things and I will defiantly be using it in the future.
Here are the blankets, washcloths and coasters.
I am making it my goal to add lots of homemade projects to my Hope chest.
I hope that you will be inspired to make some of your own yarn creations.
Have a great week,
