Wordless Wednesday explained

The picture in yesterday's post was of a crocheted crab.

I don't normally get into making amigurumi but when a friend sent me the link to this pattern, and asked me if I could understand it enough to try it, I was hooked. I love a challenge.

A small note about the pattern, it isn't easy to read, but if you ignore the X's and V's and O's that seem to be some sort of code or chart, and just read the words, you should do fine.

Anyway, he's cute and I have named him Kirby.

On another note

Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana is looking for volunteer crafters to help them make cancer ribbons. The organization already has the various colored ribbon, each cancer has its own color.

Interested volunteers may contact Cheryl Dafforn at or Linda Bewley at, or by calling the office at 260-484-9560.

The cancer ribbon making sessions are scheduled for Aug. 30 at 9:30am and Sept. 7 at 1pm. Volunteers will need to bring their own sharp fabric scissors. Coffee, soda and water will be provided.
