A few years back, I decided to make an ASL ABC blanket. I had to create each chart from scratch, plus crochet each square. It took me two months from start to finish to complete this blanket. It's massive, but I love how it turned out!

I am hard of hearing. I was inspired to create this when I had a hearing test done and discovered I needed a hearing aid. Not knowing that I would need a hearing aid at some point in life, I took a bunch of ASL classes in my late teens. I took ASL 1 & 2 in high school, then in community college I took ASL 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. I also took a Deaf Culture class.

This was a labor of love, and I've received so many kind words from hundreds of people. The free charts can be downloaded here:

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Amazing detail! I had a deaf roommate for a few months and I only know the alphabet and a couple other signs. It does really help to have learned the alphabet! This is so bright and well done! Rocks!
