You are such a great mom! And as a mom of a kid with allergies, I have to tell you thanks for looking out for the other kids. I'm always nervous about what he'll be given at school. If only all moms were like you! And I have to find me some mixes like that one.
stillatthetop -- one great thing about crochet (or knitting) is that it's so portable. I generally have a project that I leave in the car so I can work on it when I've got those odd minutes: waiting for kids to come out of school/ballet, waiting for appointments at the dentist/doctor, long drives when my hubby is driving. I wish I could do that with sewing!
