Emma's Angels needs your help

I received this note today and couldn't help but pass it on to you in case you can help...

"We crochet blankets for stillborn babies, for parents and grandparents who hold their little angels for the first and last time. This group was started due to me losing a granddaughter in 02/13/12.

Right now we are able to take care of one of our community hospitals. But would very much like to take care of a rather large hospital in Winston, Salem.

If you would like to help us, please contact:

Vicki Tolbert2099 Grooms RoadReidsville, NC 27320

Thank you in advance for your help."

Wonderland Hair Band

The second part of this note is for Elena who had a question about my hair band in the Crochet! Magazine Easy No-Sew Crochet issue of this Spring 2012.

BUT - just so you know - I have 4 designs in this magazine, including the pale green vest on the cover! Check it out - there are over 60 patterns inside! It's a steal!


Your email address must have been entered incorrectly, so here is my reply to your query...

Rows 3 & 4 form the repeat, though row 4 should read "Ch 3, 5 dc in next ch 1-sp" (as this space is formed by the ch 1, dc in the previous row).

So - rep rows 3-4 alternately until work measures 18" from beg ending with row 4.

There is no need to fasten off in the middle of the last row, as long as you are careful with the working loop that you're pulling through the other endof the hairband.

Hope this is the info you needed!

All you need is knowledge, determination and the courage to do it!

The key is in diversity! Diversify your income for stability - you know it's true!
