I’m getting a late start joining this season, but here are a few little things I’ve managed to make so far!

Prompt: July - Clover
Team: Running with Scissors
Project Name: Red Crocheted Hangers
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description:
This set is made up of THREE hangers because that’s how many this skein of pretty red mottled yarn happened to make. This is a relaxing thing to do with my hands when I’m watching TV or video chatting with friends. Also, I’m not sure how we’re doing the bingo, but I’ve picked Card #9 (completely at random), and am using this for the “Metal” square, because I sewed the crocheted part around metal hangers.
