  • "Family life is full of major and minor crises -- the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce -- and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul." -Thomas Moore

Lapghans

Angela asked a couple days ago if I was going to post any pictures of the lapghans I make for the Dana Farber Cancer Center in Boston.  Ask and ye shall receive Angela!  This is my current one that I am working on.

Not sure why the photo came out blurry, but don’t have time to take another at the moment.  I use a size M double ended crochet hook (croknit), but am only using one end.  I am doing what is considered a knit stitch with this hook, and it really does come out looking like knitting, as you will see in the next photo:

And the opposite side is very fluffy and textured:

I will post more pictures as soon as it is done (in a week or two) so that you can see the full layout of it.  I am using Red Heart Super Saver yarn, #0318 Watercolor.

  1. Oh wow! The colors you are using are GORGEOUS. This is one craft I can’t seem to get the hang of. I’ve tried to have people teach me crochet and knitting but I end up with a pile of tangled yarn. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Glad to! I learned as a kid (8yrs old) from my mother. The one I can’t do is knitting. I have tried, but always mess it up. Which is why when I discovered this croknit a few years ago, I fell in love!
