Those Interesting Fingerless Gloves

Fingerless gloves have become popular to make and fun to wear. Here are some samples. Doug made a pair using metallic-looking yarn (a gauntlet look) but it doesn't show up well in photos. Pat has been trying to get together a pair, but I'm not sure there is a mate (yet). But she modeled her glove and someone else modeled a striped one by Ethlyn.

SciFi Chris here.  One of the things I love about 3RC is the generous nature of its members.  Diane recently posted about Carol's commitment to Project Linus and the amazing blankets she has made for them.  There is our annual fundraiser for Rwanda Knits and Pittsburgh Vets.  3RC has made hats and scarves for many, many different charities.  Most recently, folks in 3RC stepped up to make items for the Butler County Humane Society fundraiser on Friday, February 13th.  Doug coordinated efforts for the group, gathering up all the donations, helping organize them, and dropping them off.  He also took lots of great photos, which are posted below.

Some of Marisa's Projects

I was thrilled when Marisa and Kristin joined the group. People who crocheted thread!

Marisa crochets with any yarn and with any pattern. Just check out these projects she brought in last summer. I'm really slow about getting projects onto the blog (which is why SciFi helps out) and didn't want you to think that Marisa dresses inappropriately in cold weather!
