“Be So Caring: A Collection of Thoughtful Gifts for the Friends We Know and Those We Have Yet To Meet” by Kristin Omdahl

Making things with our hands is the most intimate way we can express our love through gifts. Whether you are making a blanket for a new baby in your family, a shawl for someone getting married, or a hat for a sick friend, we have the ability to infuse our love and intentions into every single stitch. This is so powerful.

This collection of crochet patterns offers great gift ideas for anyone from a preemie baby through a large man. They are wonderful options for the friends you love and donations for the friends you have yet to meet.  As crafters we have a unique ability to touch others’ lives with amazing gifts of handcrafted comfort.

100% of the proceeds of this book are donated to domestic violence charities.  Learn more at KristinOmdahl.com/PKC
