|Red Scarf from 2010|
Anyway, for today, I picked this one, based on the word "Make":
What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?
The very last thing I made was a pair of shoes I finished last night. I call them shoes for effect, but they are really slippers, knit with wool and felted. I finished the seaming last night and felted them in the washing machine. They aren't completely finished, because I have to sew on the decorative piece and a button, but I like saying I knit a pair of shoes.
Skipping back a few items, in the middle of December, I finished a red scarf (that's a link to my knitting blog). I sent it to the Orphan Foundation of America. It will become part of a Valentine's Day care package for a young person who has aged out of the Foster Program. I like the idea of knitting something for someone I've never met. I pray it says to that person that God loves him or her, enough to prompt a total stranger to knit a scarf, especially for one particular child of God.
Sounds rather Emmaus-y.
What would I like to make? I think my next "big" project will be a baby blanket for an expectant mother at our church. I need to order the yarn, but I have plans for the project in my head already.
