The spouse of my friend in Brooklyn has to spend a lot of time in doctor's offices to be treated for a medical condition. My friend normally comes with him and waits for him while he has his treatment - sometimes waiting an hour (or even more).
Out of boredom, she started to do her needlework while waiting.
She does beautiful crocheting and knitting work - and, recently, has been working on projects for pediatric oncology patients.
I crochet but I do not knit, and I wanted to show off her work because I know quality work when I see it. I think the work, and the cause, is fantastic.
A crocheted blanket and some knit hats.
Aren't these beautiful? (Lately, she has had some yarn donated to her but I suspect enough of these projects were done using her own money.) We have the cliche "lemons out of lemonade" - this is about as lemony as you can get.
I've done a handful of crocheting for charity but never anything like this.
Have you ever done crocheting or knitting for charity?
