and another one done

This is a scrap baby afghan that I started ages ago. I love weekends like this where I can just go from one project to the next and finish one after the other.

Close ups.

Yes I still have a few more projects on the go. Hope to get more done tomorrow.

I finished this baby blanket while I was at the Stouffville meeting today.

And here is the matching hat.

Stouffville Casting off the Cold

Here are some of the things that I will be donating today at the Stouffville Casting off the Cold meeting.
This is a really pretty blanket that I made a few years ago. I think it would be really pretty on a baby's crib.

This aran blanket I made over 4 years ago. Long story to this served its purpose at the time and now it is time to pass it on.

Here are the hats that I have made.

These are close ups of the hats.

Here is another hat....

to match this blanket I am working on right now. This will be what you will see me working on at the meeting. If I finish it at the meeting, chances are that I will be starting another

Hats and scarves for the Evergreen Centre

My workplace (Johnson Insurance) is having a coat drive....gently used coats to be donated to the Evergreen Centre (Yonge Street Mission). I thought it would be a great idea for Casting off the Cold to get our name out there so I asked Sally if CotC would be willing to donate hats/scarves to go along with the coats. She said yes. So I picked up 20 hat/scarf sets from her last week. Along with the 20 sets that the members of CotC donated I have managed to get quite a few sets done myself.
This is a scarf that is already done and I am working on the hat to match it now.

The following are some example of sets from members of Casting off the Cold.

I will be taking all of these into work on Wednesday and personally giving them to the woman who is organizing this drive at work. We are going to sit down together and write a letter to go along with the donation to the Evergreen Centre mentionning that it was a joint effort between Johnson Insurance and the members of Casting off the Cold.

I made this bearghan for a couple at work who are expecting their first baby in April.
She was so excited when I gave this to her, it was cute. This is the first baby blanket they have received....which was my plan.
