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.

Colorado Sweater Set

My Knitting has once again give me much joy.  This little sweater set was made for a friend's grandson soon to be born.  The yarn is a cotton blend.  So soft yet durable and washable.  I like little throws to use for the baby carriers.  It stays off the floor and near the child.  With this one, a beige boarder gives it some definition  ( according to my adviser and bed partner husband).

The hat was knitted in the round until the last few rows.  This size 6 months should still fit up to a year old child.  The buttons were a special request.  The flower is Edelweise-Switzerland's National flower.  Papa has citizenship their, so grandchild will have some history on his sweater.  I decided as he grows, I should be allowed to reuse the buttons for his next size sweater from honorary Aunt Jan.

My next project is already started. 
This time for a little baby girl due in September.  I hope you will 
come back and visit. 
 Please let me hear from you so I can visit your blog.
