Using Up My Yarn While I Can

Because my multiple sclerosis is slowly taking away my ability to crochet, I decided that it was time to use up my yarn stash while I could. I might not be able to work on large project like afghans any more, but I can still make hats, scarves, and mittens.

So what I've been doing is using up my yarn stash little by little to make these things for various Chicago-area charities. The Night Ministry has a need for scarves for the homeless teens they work with. Misrecordia uses hats and mittens for the homeless. And I'm using a thin chenille yarn that I have to make hats for cancer patients.

Being able to do something for others makes me feel like I'm still able to contribute to society.
