A New Chick Visits

We had a pleasant surprise last night when new mom, Allison, came to visit with Baby Ellie. I thought everyone had arrived, when about a half hour after we started knitting, I heard the back door open and in comes our newest Chick! Isn't she adorable?!

I must admit we were all a little distracted from our knitting.

But we actually did knit a few stitches. Our current project is making lap robes for our veterans in the local VA Hospital. It is a part of the Soldier's Angels Blankets of Gratitude. The goal nationwide is to make 25,000 blankets which can be crocheted, knitted or loomed.

If you would like to participate on your own, you can contact Shelley Folkerts at

Shelley will give you the guidelines for size and when they are due.

Happy Knitting!
