Are you almost ready to send in your Crochet For Cancer CAL projects??  I have several ready to go!!  If you haven’t read about this great event… here is the basic info…


A couple of weeks ago myself and 9 of my Crochet Blogging friends got together and started a Crochet For Cancer CAL charity drive…  We all donated tons of Free Crochet Patterns for you to use and the donations will be going to Hooks For Hope… A chapter of Crochet for Cancer…By donating 4 handmade hats or 2 larger projects, you can be eligible for the Red Heart Prize Package Drawing…  Click Here for detailed information and the list of Free Patterns!!! #CrochetForCancerCAL


One of my Free Patterns is my very popular Amazing Grace Hat…  So last night I whipped up another one to put in my donation package…  This time I mixed it up… I made it two-tone!!!  I used my left over yarn from my CAL Afghan… It is Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand Yarn…  What do you think of this Amazing Grace Hat Remixed??

Next on my list to donate… is my latest Amazing Grace Project… The Amazing Grace Tote Bag I did a little Remix on this one too!!!  I made this one two-tone and I used Cotton Yarn… I loved the way it turned out!!!  The cotton gave it a completely different feel and the two-tone is my daughters favorite one so far!!!  What do you think??
