I finished working on my next three kits from Annie’s Caring Crochet Club and I’m ready to share my feedback with you! I enjoyed working on these volunteer crochet projects.

Easy does it! Dishcloths
This kit contains 3 beautiful cotton yarn balls to crochet dishcloths and it teaches you to crochet 3 different types of stitches. My favorite was cable stitch (intermediate skill level) and it turned out so beautiful. I had never tried cable stitch before and now I had a good reason to learn it. The pattern was very easy to follow and I enjoyed making all 3 dishcloths. Please watch my review video for more:
I donated my dishcloths to the featured organization Charis House:
Charis House is for women and children experiencing a homeless crisis. Imagine being homeless and unable to provide for your children. That’s the reality for a growing number of women and children in our community. At Charis House, these women not only find relief from homelessness, but they’re also able to heal and move forward. Our restorative programs equip them to find jobs and housing, navigate life’s challenges, experience emotional stability and grow in their relationship with Christ. Because the goal is not just to live life, but to thrive.https://therescuemission.net/about-the-mission/our-houses/charis-house
Motor City Mittens
I learned to crochet mittens! Again something new! It was the first time for me to crochet mittens and I loved it! The ribbed cuffs are so lovely and enjoyable to crochet. The skill level of the project was easy and the mittens turned out really well at first try. They fit my hand perfectly which proves that the pattern is well written and easily followed. I made 2 pairs with the lovely variegated yarn and hopefully they will make the receivers happy! Please watch my review video for more:
I donated my mittens to the featured organization Mittens for Detroit:
Mittens for Detroit, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that collects, purchases, and distributes new mittens and gloves to children, teens, and adults in need in Detroit, Michigan, and other underserved cities. Founded in 2010, MFD is now in its 10th Collection Season.https://mittensfordetroit.org/
Hope begins hats
It has been a busy hat making time in January, and I was so pleased to receive a hat kit from Annie’s Caring Crochet Kit club. I made two cozy, warm, cute hats. I love these hats because of their ribbed brims. It was a different way to make the ribbed brim hats than I have used to so far. So this is the new crochet skill I learned with this kit.

I donated my mittens to the featured organization Portland Rescue Mission:
Founded in 1949 by John Van Diest Sr., Portland Rescue Mission opened its doors as the “John 3:16 Mission.” Since then, the Portland Rescue Mission has had a tireless commitment to breaking the cycle of homelessness, addiction and despair in the lives of hurting people in need. Today, we still offer emergency services of food and shelter at our original downtown location at the Burnside Shelter. And we’ve expanded those services to include 24/7 restrooms, showers, clothing, mail service, referrals and community activities in the Guest Care Center. Thanks to generous community support, we’ve expanded our ministry to include a wide range of programs designed to meet a hurting person at their point of need and help them toward their journey home.https://www.portlandrescuemission.org/
