I agree on trying to finish the project. A finished product can bring much comfort knowing a loved one made it.

As for small gifts - I would think something symbolic like a little crochet or knitted heart would be nice.

I found a link here http://planetmfiles.com/2010/01/26/free-crochet-heart-pattern/ and here http://mochimochiland.com/2007/02/free-pattern-hearts/

I am sorry for your loss. Good luck!

I love knitting with cotton, it's my go to yarn but lately I've been drawn to bamboo, I find it doesn't get the same shedding or fuzzies that I somehow always seem to get with some cottons that I use.

My husband also has an thing with fabrics and has banned all wool from our house (sadness) - He likes the bamboo and always seems to be curled up with my blanket.

If you are really stuck on using wool knit up a couple of squares and try a few tricks to see if you can get it soft enough for him.

I've never tried the shampoo trick but I think I will. I really want a wool throw on the sofa!

Good luck!

Does your friend have a scarf that she is already fond of?

Ask her to measure it or ask her to go to the shop and see what length scarf she likes - everyone seems to have their own personal preference.

Good luck! Post a picture when you are done - I'm sure we'd all like to see!

A few ways you could go:

Open it up and pull out all the stuffing - wash the doll by hand in cold water with very mild soap - I've often used clear hand soap. Then refill it with new stuffing once it's dried.

Wash it by hand with all the stuffing in it let it air dry if you think it will or pop it in a pillow case and put it in the dry on very low heat of the fluff cycle.

Or if you are very very brave and think the doll will stand up to it - pop it in a pillow cover with a zipper closure and put it in the washing machine and then the dryer.

My vote for a child would be either number one or number two. Either that stuffing has got to go or it has to be well cleaned.

Good luck - post a picture of the doll - it would be fun to see.
