Try it, you might like it!

I am the world's biggest chicken about needles....childbirth, no problem. broken bones? piece of cake. but needles.....freak me the f#*k out.

But i conquered my fear the other day and donated blood. and it wasn't bad at all. AND they give juice and cookies! free snacks and helping someone? not too shabby.

Right now, most communities are in desperate need for donations. PLEASE, contact your local hospital or Red Cross, and make a donation. Then you can justify buying more yarn as a reward for doing something good for others!!

Finished Sweater

Here is another finished project. This one is for Joey. I actually used the adult small size, and it fits great. If only he would actually wear it! He doesn't like heavy clothing, and will only wear long-sleeve tees, even on the coldest days. Oh well, it should fit Jamie in a couple of years.
