Frank and I have started crocheting some scarves with matching hats for the children we donate to in the fall. We will probably make some adult scarves also.

It has been a long time since I posted on here. Today we donated 150 loom knitted hats and 2 crocheted blankets to the Salvation Army Coat Drive here in Chambersburg Pa. After some hand surgery I don't crochet much anymore but recently have started loom knitting helping Frank make hats. I will be trying to crochet more on the blankets soon. As we are getting close to our 80's things have slowed down for us as our health is slowing us down. We will keep going and as long as we can hold the hooks.

133 Loom Knitted Hats Donated
Last week we donated 133 of Frank's loom knitted hats to the Salvation Army Coat Drive for Kids here in Chambersburg. I have mostly given up on crocheting baby blankets but work some on crocheting little pet blankets. I am have lots of trouble with my right wrist. Also 2 of our local hospitals have stopped accepting baby things. It it too costly to ship. I have taken up a new hobby of diamond painting.

Baby Blankets, Sleep Sack and Pet Blankets
After not crocheting for several months due to tendinitis in my right wrist I have crocheted a couple baby blankets, a sleep sack with matching hat and along with Frank several pet blankets. Along with our new hobby of diamond painting, it has been slow going but it feels great to get some crocheting done.

25 Blankets for cats and dogs
Here are 25 blankets to be donated to animal shelters. I crocheted about half of them before my wrist gave out on me, Frank crocheted the rest. I hope to be back to crocheting again in a week or two.
