New Charity Projects for Washington Hospital Center's Cancer Center

The weather is finally cooler and sunnier.  We had lots of rain earlier which made it easy to stay in and crochet.  I've been working on using up my stash yarn and have managed to make up several projects to donate to charity.  specifically, I'll be donating the lapghan and the shawl shown below to the Washington Hospital Center's Cancer Center.  

Both items turned out quite nice so I will be mailing them next week to Lorna at the Cancer Support Services.  I love to crochet and it is so nice to be able to share the warmth with others.

A heavily modified pattern using Lion Brand's Homespun in Black and N.Y. Yarn's Grande in Chocolate. 

Tranquil Shawl made with Wool Ease Chunky by Lion Brand

Also made a bulky best for a small woman or large girl using a heavy chocolate colored N.Y. Yarn's Grande.  The pattern was furnished by Patternworks which sold the yarn.  It made up in just a few hours but putting the buttons on took some thought.  I don't expect it will ever be buttoned since it is so heavy but the buttons add a nice detail.
