Wonder where all the wonderful knit and crochet projects end up? Well, these ended up on my favorite model, my 5-year old granddaughter, who put them all together by herself – and loves the look – and I do too! Party beret, Simply Soft dress and scarf, Simply Soft Chunky legwarmers. You can find all the patterns for these at caron.com.
If you wonder where many of our shawls, afghans, hats, baby items and baby blankets go, I bring many of them to the Cancer Center at Fletcher Allen Hospital in Burlington, VT. Other items are donated to womens’ shelters and others I barter at a fabulous re-sale shop across the street from our offices. With the credit, I get styling garments for our photo shoots. And other designs are donated to the Three Rivers Crochet Group in Pittsburgh, to be auctioned off at their annual fund-raising party to benefit a local women’s shelter and Rwanda Knits. Nothing, absolutely nothing, goes to waste around here. Hazel will grow out of these fabulous pieces and they will go to some other lucky little girl.
Oh, and her baby brother just loves his new Spa hat! You can find the pattern here.
