Kathrine's Patterns

Today is one of those "dog wash" days, a day to putter around and not do anything too challenging. However, I also want to cross some things off my Project List. My sister-in-law had given me a folder full knitting and crochet patterns that had belonged to my mother-in-law. She passed a couple of years ago, so I wanted to keep them as a way to honor her. Most of the patterns were photo copies, so I got an empty binder and my page protectors and worked my way through the stack.

There were lots of patterns for afghans and  ponchos and novelty items, like Christmas decorations. There were some patterns written out on scrap paper—the back of a letter or greeting card—that didn't say what they were for.  I even found two patterns for Christmas tree shapes cut out of old paper shopping bags. Kathrine was green! I put all of the page protectors in the binder, with a couple of booklets in the binder pocket. I cut a label from vinyl using my Silhouette. I'm happy to check this off my list and to have honored Kathrine with something pretty.
