New Knit-Along

Image hosting by Photobucket
Some of you may have noticed a new button on my blog. It's for The Lucy Ladybug Knit-Along, a charity knit-along that provides burial clothing to hospitals in Utah in memory of "LucyBug". Check out this worthy cause and consider joining. There are no deadlines and items can be knitted, crocheted or sewn. While you're there be sure to read the poem called The Incredible Feats of Lucy. I know it will touch your heart as it did mine. Though most of the bereavement outfits I make will be donated to The Preemie Project, it is my goal to knit one outfit a month for this charity. This month I have two tiny buntings to donate.

    Tracy, what beautiful and inspiring work you do!! You are so creative. I have a question unrelated to knitting. Do you know what "frogs" have to do with the death of a loved one? I did see in Revelation about the three evil spirits leaving the mouth of a demon, but I am unsure of the relation. If you could help or direct me I would appreciate it.

  4. I joined too! I feel so drawn to knitting burial gowns/buntings. I'm glad to find another hospital that needs theses items so I can help provide these to bereaved parents.
