Knit lei for Fisher House Remembrance Run Walk or Roll

This is a free pattern for a knitted lei. I am knitting these for the Fisher House in Hawaii. They need 7300 for their event in September.

The leis will be placed around the boots of fallen soldiers at the event.

For my example I used ribbon yarn from the Darn Good Yarn company. It would be equivalent to 3 strands of acrylic worsted weight yarn held together.

On size 11 knitting needles
Cast On 44 stitches
Knit one row
Bind off

Put yarn on both ends, as they will need to be tied around the boots.

This pattern is easy to make bigger or smaller. If your lei isn't long enough, add more stitches. If it is too long, cast on less stitches.

March Donation Quilt and other donated crafts

I donated my March donation quilt without taking pictures first! This is how busy I've been lately!

It was a strip quilt done in Quilt as you go technique with a lot of Orange and Green for St. Patrick's Day.

I apologize for the lack of pictures :-(

Other projects I did in the month of March include:

30 bookmarks for my local PTO's book fair.

1 embroidered drawstring back pack for a basket raffle

1 embroidered pillow for a basket raffle

1 filled Easter basket for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.
