I have been having a few medical problems that have slowed me down slightly. As a result I had to take out over half of the Claret scarf that I was working on. Since the yarn was in a heap on my little table, I started on another Aqua scarf on Thursday, when I had a doctor’s appointment. I have almost two feet on that scarf done and have crocheted the yarn back up that I had to take out because of my mistake. That being the case, I will be done with both of them probably tomorrow, New Years Eve.
Last evening, a friend brought me some more yarn. There are six small skeins that say they are for sport socks, and one giant skein that will probably make at least three scarves and some hats. I’m not sure, because I have never seen a skein so big.
I am so thankful for the yarn. Since I don’t know how to make anything except for square or rectangular items, I am going to add all of the skeins together to make one regular size multi color scarf.
Just an update on the scarf delivery. So far it has continued to be too cold to deliver the scarves. When it gets up to the mid twenties instead of the teens, then we will go out and try to deliver the scarves once again.
Also, since I have found someone that is going to make hats to match the donated yarn I am not going to deliver those scarves next year. I am going to keep them until the hats are made that will match them. When the yarn was donated to me I was told the the three skeins of each color would allow me to make two scarves and hats to match of each color. Since I couldn’t make hats, I was just going to make short scarves out of all of the skeins of yarn. Now that someone has contacted me about making hats, I have decided to purchase only black or grey yarn for the hats. Black and grey will match any color of scarf, and the dark colors hold in the heat better.
Another great announcement. The other day when I had to go for some blood tests, I found out that one of the check in receptionists has so many hats that she has already made, that she doesn’t know what to do with them. She likes making multi color hats in her spare time. Once she found out that I make scarves, she told me that she will donate all of her extra hats to me so I can deliver them with the scarves.
It is so exciting that things are finally beginning to come together for the homeless people to be a little bit warmer than what they have been. It has taken a year, but it is finally happening, and that’s all that matters. My God sure is an awesome God.
Next year is shaping up to be a great year for MammaHen Foundation and what we are going to try to do for the homeless. Pleas continue to pray for a favorable outcome, and for more people to volunteer to get involved with this project. Thank you in advance for for your prayers and help if any of you want to volunteer to help with making scarves, hats or mittens. So far, I have not found anybody that can make mittens.
Until next time, be safe and have a wonderful New Year.
