Double Hug Prayer Shawl

This pattern comes from The Crocheted Prayer Shawl Companion 37 Patterns to Embrace Inspire and Celebrate Life. I had made this one for a previous ministry and found the "granny" style relaxing and easy to work with while watching television.

For my notes this version was made with Red Heart Super Saver Amethyst and a K hook.

This is the fourth shawl I've finished so far. I'm currently struggling with adapting a thread baby doll pattern but I hope to find a happy balance between the donations.

Lacework Prayer Shawl

This pattern comes from Leisure Arts The Prayer Shawl Ministry Volume 2. I ordered Homespun Lagoon for this and made it with the suggested K hook.

I've now completed three shawls. I'm hoping to get some doll clothes completed for the doll donation as well.

Glitter Girl Seed Stitch Blanket

The doll blankets are usually my travel projects. I usually don't worry about the larger dolls getting blankets as I'm very fortunate to have donors who make doll blankets every year for the donation far more beautiful and creative than anything I make. However, I do try to make sure the smaller dolls that require different sized blankets get one. The Glitter Girl requires a smaller blanket. This blanket is an adaptation of Michelle Crean's larger seed stitch blanket I've been making as my travel project for the larger dolls. You can find the pattern here.

Notes: I used a starting chain of 40 for the smaller doll and worsted weight 4 baby yarn.
