I have lots of leftovers - so I made some minis -
10 pairs for preemies - a donation to a children's clinic -
and 40 minis - I still have to add a little chain and a ring and then they can be used as key fobs - 
they will be selled at a charity bazaar for the benefit of handicapped children
(hope I got the right words .... )

June Projects Finished!

I've been making socks for Wool Aid, a charity that provides warm wool items for children in need. These socks are from a book called "Sock Hop," by Joseph Madl for Philosopher's Wool. I used mostly Lamb's Pride Worsted, with other scraps from my stash. The lacework is a scarf, made from handmaiden Sea Silk in the Blackberry colorway, left over from the wedding shawl I made my new daughter-in-law and posted last month. The pattern is Branching Out by Susan Pierce Lawrence, available for free at
