We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
I haven't ever done crochet, but a friend of mine has just been diagnosed with stomach cancer and she loves to crochet. She has been sent home as she is not strong enough for any type of treatments. I was hoping if I could show her something new or different we might be able to spark her interest and help her get through this period.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. She has two daughters and two grandsons, age 5 & 7. I thought maybe some of the animal things were cute, but not sure if they are knitting or crochet.
A simple and fun crochet project would be wash cloths out of the "peaches and cream cotton yarn". I think that there is even a pattern on the yarn itself. I know that Walmart carries it and probably many other yarn shops have it. It you alreay have the yarn I can give you the pattern instructions.
I would get her a subscription but as of yet, she doesn't seem too motivated to do anything. With her condition I don't want to do anything long term. The websites are a great help. I printed out a few and gave them to her.
Amazingly she is not in pain, but is very tired all the time. I figured since she liked to crochet it would be something she might want to do, but don't want to push it. Will just have to wait and see, but thank you again for the websites and info.
