Some of you may know that my son had three liver transplants between the ages of 5-8 (2008-2011). You may also know that he was born with a rare genetic disorder that leads to said liver transplant(s). I wrote a book about the journey that you can get here.
My son’s genetic disorder directly impacts the liver and means when he was born he wasn’t given an enzyme to help him process the protein through normal channels and instead stayed in his system in the form of ammonia. I am happy to report that he’s been the epitome of health since 2011 minus a cold here and there.
So this morning I spend some time searching for awareness crochet items and came across these cool ribbons.
The first one is from Little Orphan stitch and you can get the free pattern here.
The other pattern I came across is from Da’s Crochet Connection andcan be found here.
Of course, there are many more ribbon patterns out on the interwebs but I keep thinking about the many fantastic things one can create with these ribbons.
I am thinking coasters, broaches, potholders, kitchen towels, applique patches, blankets, coffee cup cozies…
