“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.
My new initiative with Project Kristin Cares is to create the Be So Helpful Bags. These thoughtful unisex go-bags include many comforting items for anyone who is in a difficult or challenging situation. 100% of the proceeds of this book help me to send Be So Helpful Bags to shelters across the USA every month. You may purchase Be So Helpful Bags to donate or gift at any time. There’s even enough room to add your own handmade item for that extra-special touch. Learn more at KristinOmdahl.com/PKC
