Charity Knitting

Hope all of my friends in the US had a great Thanksgiving holiday! On Wednesday Henry had the day off so we went to visit my mom and pick up some of her finished knitting. My mom is a very proficient knitter, and nowadays mostly knits for charity. If you click on the CIC label on the right hand side column there are some pictures of her knitting from couple of years ago.

It's been rainy so I have to take pictures indoor, the flash really hurts colors.

That is A LOT of projects. I need to turn in the charity knits and weaving I have done throughout the year to my favorite charity. This is the season for giving plus where I work, a lot of my clients are the people who need those hats and gloves.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Yow-za, that is a lot of needle work, I am completely amazed!!! Great job!

Kathryn Ray said...

Definately impressive!

Have a great weekend.

You are very prolific! I love the child's vest.

I'm assuming (since I think most, if not all, of those items are crocheted) that your mother made them? She's definitely very prolific with the hook! I am positive each will be put to good use and much appreciated by the recipient.

What are you working on?

Vivian said...

Andrea, remember to take pictures of your charity work and post about them!

Melissa, Kathryn, Thanks!

Marie, my mom's work ;-) thanks!

VdV, the vests are knitted, hats are crochet, baby blankets have a knitted center. My mom is primarily a knitter, but she doesn't use any pattern so her work can be very unusual and creative. I'm still working on my St. Brigid, guess it's about time for an update!

Your Mom's been busy! I think you should have taken a pic of Rascal wearing a beret. Maybe you could knit him a Rascal size one? Have a great weekend.

I love the berets!

I love looking at your Mom's charity knitting. She inspires me, though I'm doing selfish knitting recently.
Hop you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
