Pocket Beanie

I have done a lot of crocheting lately. I recently finished up a load of tiny little baby beanies for charity. I have also been filling special orders from my Etsy Shop and making things for my friends.

Well, last night, I made something for myself. I found some really cheap yarn at a dollar store. I knew I didn't want to use such yarn on the items I sell, but I really liked it, so I made hat for the winter. Best thing about it is it only cost me a dollar.

I'm not big into wearing crochet things or hats. I mean, I love hats and have many of them hanging around. I just do not think I look good in them. Also, It never really gets that cold here in North Carolina.

I think this multi colored, mixed yarn made a lovely beanie. It is really soft and colorful but I wanted to add something to it. I see a lot of bows and flowers on beanies so I wanted to do something a little different. I added my own little special touch by adding a pocket and an antique wooden button.

The colors will go with a lot of different sweaters and cant wait for it to get cold enough so I can wear it. .....Well, Ok no, I do not want it to get that cold. I love the warmer months and really cant wait for summer to come back. But if the weather brings it, I'm ready!

Prayer Cloth

While looking around on the Internet the other day, I came across this really cute crocheted prayer cloth. I just had to make one.

This was my first one and I think its adorable.
You can find the free pattern HERE.

Prayer cloths are not to be sold, only given.

A prayer cloth is used by an individual or group of people that are praying for an ailing or sick friend, or family member. The prayer cloth is usually prayed upon by the individual or group, and then given to or wrapped around the sick friend or family member.

I remember a church giving one to my Mother-in-law when she was sick. I thought it was so precious. It meant a lot to her.

Now keep in mind, a prayer cloth does not heal. It is only a token of prayers said for the person its given to. Prayers, believing, and faith in God bring healing.

So that from his body were brought unto the sick, handkerchiefs or
aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of
Act 19:12.
