This week, I've been feverishly working on a charity project that is near and dear to my heart. Through Instagram and user @LittleBeesBooth, I found that the NICU at Pittsburgh Children's Hospital was hosting a fundraiser featuring a silent auction. The call for handmade items went out, and I felt compelled to answer. As a fellow NICU Mom, I am passionate for helping these families.
The needs were for adult items, so I sent a couple different things in three auctionable sets: I made a custom hat and mitten set, and I sent two coffee sets that both included a pair of coffee sleeves and a pound of coffee.
The hat and mitten set was a new design for me, since I was experimenting with doing these in crochet. One of the biggest differences if these were made top-down instead of bottom-up. It was a different way to work, but it came to a great result.
The coffee sleeves included a floral option and a more flat knit. The coffee beans are from a local Minnesota chain: Caribou Coffee. I'm so happy to have been allowed to provide these to such a great cause!
