Welcome to DreamChallenge

Having a dream to share my knitting creations, cooking adventures and caregiving stories with others is now a reality. I bet you know someone right now who is at home taking care of someone they love. A phone call, e-mail, note card or some food would all be appreciated. Sometimes an offer to stand in for that person is a wonderful gift. Think about getting a hair cut, what if there is no time or person to sit with your loved one? What can you do to help someone else, or if you are that caregiver, how can you get people to understand you would like to see them or have their help? Knitting helps me stay calm. Knitting helps my blood pressure stay normal. What helps you? Cooking is an adventure for me. My husband is a dedicated 'clean-up' person. Join us on this part of our life's journey.

Choosing to send out cards is one way I stay in touch with others. I address cards on Sunday and my husband puts them in the mail on Monday. There is always someone who needs a card.

After several months of blogging there is a reality that lots of people really enjoy this activity. Positively delightful people, living life to the best of their ability. There is such fun in hearing from others who have ideas, stories, crafts all to share with those who choose to read. Thank you my new friends in this unknown world/way of communicating.

Baby Boy Sweater Finished

The precious little boy is still nestled in his Mama's body, but his beautiful sweater is finished and waiting.  
Knitting for little ones is a blessing for me.  I can pray for the family and new baby as the garment comes to life.  
Here is the beginning collar and body. This sweater is knitted                                                                          from the top down.

My Husband says this is the 'cutest one ever'.

My picture taking leaves a 'little' to be learned.  The top picture shows a more true color.
The yarn is so very soft and totally washable.  It is made in Italy.

I hope your winter days are healthy and happy.  Let me hear from you and share what you are doing through the long winter dark evenings.  Jan
