Early on in the process of recovering from my accident, my physical therapist told me to do small precise movements with my left arm and hand as I was able. I asked about crocheting and he said that would be perfect. So, with all the time I have had not doing other things, I have had time to crochet. It was hard work at first, but is getting easier as time goes by. I just finished the above hat and sweater, and it will be going to a baby shower in October for a baby girl. The mother-to-be is a special friend of my daughter JoAnn and our family.
However, it's always nice to see the finished product on the babies the gifts are intended for. Here are Isaac and Elijah, a pair of twins born right after my accident. Their matching sweaters were my first attempt to crochet post accident, and it filled my time up nicely. Such cuties. I also crocheted 'summer' sleeves, just a cap really and that worked nicely. The boys are growing by leaps and bounds and already wearing 'big boy' clothes now.
