Ideas Neded

Posted by ivamae (My Page) on

I was given 9 skeins of Mary Maxim, white, Titan yarn and 2 of light green and one of light brown. I'm wondering about crocheting a lapghan - maybe a granny square pattern. Have any of you any other suggestions? I prefer to crochet, something, with it. We have cancer groups needing several pair of slippers but who wants white slippers? Even the pale green is too light to be serviceable.

I'm sure open to advice

RE: Ideas Needed

Thanks for the sugestions. I have made 10 caps for the cancer clinic and either 30 or 35 for another organization that gives them to chemo patients. It certainly does give a good feeling.
Ironically, I started doing this before I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

I'm thinking that a lapghan may be what I will do. This yarn is so heavy that I can't imagine scarves or caps from it. The nursing homes could certainly use lapghans I think.

Thanks for all the suggestions. It is much appreciated.
