4th Annual NICU Charity Challenge

Hi all.

I decided to put my talents to good use and, since it’s the season of giving, I have joined the Sunset Family Living Annual NICU Challenge. The challenge started on November 20th and will run until January 6th. It consists of making 12 preemie hats and donating them to the nearest NICU.

You don’t have to join this particular challenge to make a difference. There are many causes out there that one can support. But if you’re anything like me, you love creating things with your hands and sometimes run out places to store them or people to gift them to. So instead, if we can all put a little bit of our time and talent into helping those in need, whether it is making hats for babies in the NICU, warm clothes for the residents of a local shelter, or simply helping out a family in your community to put a few gifts under the tree this year, it would mean the world to the people in need.

I’ve received the first pattern of the challenge and will begin making some hats in the next few days.

The Happy Pigglets

2014-11-05 15.19.11I just put the finishing touches on these two sweeties.

Aren’t they cute?

A couple of months ago I saw the pattern on the Amigurumi To Go website and had to make one for myself. Of course that after finishing the first one, the boy, I was compelled to make a girl as well.

I love amigurumi crochet but hate dislike sewing the pieces together. I end up crocheting everything in a day and then the circles, tubes, and other body parts spend weeks and sometimes months in a corner on my desk while I desperately hope that the Amigurumi Fairy will appear one night and put the tangled mess together. Eventually I realize that I cannot escape my fate (duh!), and months later TA DA here’re some cute piglets.

Since it is almost Christmas I was thinking of making a couple of miniature Santa hats for them and using the piglets as seasonal decorations.

Maybe bunny ears for Easter? We’ll see.
