After my visit to the women's shelter on Saturday I stopped by the craft store for more yarn. We had discussed teaching the ladies how to crochet dishcloths, but I'm not sure those would sell well and the cotton would be expensive. Instead, I have proposed the little Christmas stocking (pattern from Le monde de Sucrette) and the Christmas Wreath Ring Ornament (pattern from Whiskers & Wool). Both are simple projects that hopefully the ladies can learn quickly and hopefully will sell at upcoming holiday bazaars.
I haven't made either since last year so will have to whip a few up for practice purposes before going back to the shelter.
Wishing you a great new week!
