RAK January

I decided this year that I was going to start doing RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) gifts. There will be at least one a month. I thought it would be a positive way to go through my year by spreading some of the joy I get with my hobbies to others. And I get the best gift of all ... the gift of giving.

My first RAK gift is a cowl made of grey wool yarn for my quilting friend Saskia. She and I both have a pet that is of a certain age and each day is a gift with them. She walks her dog each weekend in the woods so I thought I needed to keep her warm as the February cold will be arriving soon. It turned out very soft and falls so nicely. I hope you will enjoy it Saskia and that is keeps you nice and warm.....

  1. That statue is just the greatest little model. I bet you never dreamed it would be that useful cause you didn't crochet when you bought her.
    The cowl came out really well and I bet Saskia really likes it too. Keep goingggggggg.
    Love you, Mom
