Wishing everyone a happy & healthy new year.
I was checking out my charity goal for this year. I set it at 200 items. I really thought that 200 was attainable but, I did not make my goal. The good news is, I sent out 93 items and that's 93 people I helped this year. Put them all in a room and that's a lot of people. Upset I didn't make it? Nope! I didn't make anything over the summer which hurt my chances of making my goal. If I were to just crochet items it would be no problem. It goes so much fasting than knitting does but, I knitted mittens and hats and those items take me longer to do. Will I join the challenge next year? You bet! Those ladies rocked this year! The group, as a whole, made over 52,000 items! That is awesome!
I don't know what 2010 has in store for me but, I do know that a big part of it will be my charity giving. I have started a new to me knitting hat pattern. It uses 2 colors. Have have done anything like that so, it'll be interesting to see how I make out with it. It is so much easier using one color and just going but, felt the need to challenge myself a bit.
Happy New Year! Stay safe this holiday weekend.
Until next year....
