I saw the beautiful blankets and saw how much my daughter loved them and I decided to teach myself how to crochet blankets. I bought a couple of books, some crotchet needles and some yarn. I have now successfully made 3 blankets. One was donated to a pregnancy center and the two others have been given to friends for their new babies. I'm working on my fourth.
A part of me started this new project because I like using hands and making things. I also wanted to give something to pregnancy centers so that the mothers-to-be knew that someone was thinking of them and praying for them as they start the journey into motherhood. The bonus part was that since I was using my hands, there was no more late night snacking in front of the tv and I lost some weight :)
I really enjoy making these blankets and I enjoy making them for friends who are having babies. My hope is that I will also be able to continue making them for the pregnancy centers. What better way for me to contribute to one of my favorite causes? New life!
