Volunteer Work

File 2017-05-11, 4 08 56 PMTime to do something good for the community

So off to sewing placemats and two pillows. Several of our Special Needs Adult kids are volunteering their time at a Retirement Home in Aurora.

So I thought since I can’t help on sight, I could help out too and sew up some stuff for them to sell at the TuckShop….Lots of great fabric was donated for me to use. Thanks You !

Hopefull the TuckShop will have fun selling them too. More will come soon too….Though I hope this is a good start for now. Enjoy

With this TuckShop our Special Need Adult Volunteers learn so many great things…counting money, selling items, manage to be with others, teamwork, communicating with customers, listening to others….the list goes on and not to forget having  some fun too.

Knitting “Therapy”

2015-08-06 17.53.41Ohhhh that is so true, knitting is Therapy for so many of us.

Smiles I knit all the time and it is so relaxing and calming. It lets my mind think and rekindle with my thoughts and soul. I really hope there will never be a time where I am getting told I have to stop knitting or I can’t knit anymore do to health reasons.

2015-08-06 17.53.18Some of my friends and I decided to knit this shawl “Therapy” by Laura Aylor as a knit-a-long. We all knit 2 hours each week and finished all at the same week.

As I am having fun dyeing my own yarn now, why not use some of it and make a sample for “KnitswissYarns” too. Off I whent with 50% Silk and 50% Merino Superwash Fingering weight in Dunklegrau Wolke, Rosa Wolke and Rote Wolke and US4 -3.5 mm needle. Wonderful and so soft , love knitting with my yarn. Feels like butter running through my fingers.2015-06-30 18.19.43

2015-08-06 17.53.47Es ist doch kein Geheimniss das stricken eine  Therapie ist  für so viele von uns.

Lächeln, Ich stricke die ganze Zeit und es ist so entspannend und beruhigend.  Meiner Meinung denke ich es entspannt meine Gedanken und Seele. Ich hoffe wirklich, dass es niemals eine Zeit gibt, wo mir gesagt wird dass ich aufhören muss mit dem stricken wegen gesundheitlichen Gründen.

Ein paar von uns beschlossen “Therapie” von Laura Aylor als Knit-a-long zu stricken. Wir alle strickten 2 Stunden pro Woche und fertig sind alle in der gleichen Woche.

2015-08-06 17.52.18Da ich Spaß am Wollen färben habe, strickte ich diesen Schal in “KnitswissYarns” meine Wolle 50% Seide und 50% Merino Superwash “Fingering” in Dunklegrau Wolke, Rosa Wolke und Rote Wolke und US4 -3,5 mm Nadel. Wunderbar und so weich, fühlt sich an wie Butter in meine Finger
