Crochet a Reminder to Give Thanks

November 6th, 2008

Pin It

The cornucopia is a symbol that reminds us to appreciate the abundance in our lives.  No matter how difficult times may be, Thanksgiving is a time to focus on what we are grateful for.

This cornucopia is a crocheted horn shape with individually crocheted mini fruits and vegetables inside, including a pumpkin, an apple, an egglplant, a corn on the cobb and a squash.  The filled cornucopia measures 6 3/4″ wide by 6 1/2″ tall.

We invite you to comment and share with us and with each other the things that you are grateful for.

    These are adorable! I’m thankful for the wealth of information that you share with us!
    This Thanksgiving will be especially poignant for me as it’s the first without my parents – my father died last year and my mom is no longer able to communicate.

  • Shelley

    Thanks you for the cross referenceing info so I too may get these patterns!

    I am thankful for everything in my life. My family, my friends, even my job! When I look around my neighborhood and see so many people struggling, so many empty houses, so many closed down small business’s, I am thanksful that we are able to make ends meet with just a few cuts backs here and there and that I can still fnd that quality me time to sit down and relax with a ball of yarn! There is alot to be thanksful for this year!

    This is adorable. I am thankful for the many opportunities and changes in my life. I was sad to see that Vicki is facing her first holiday of the season with her Dad having passed and her Mom unable to communicate. That pain is difficult at holiday time.

    I am 64. When I was 54, my left retina detached. When I was 59, my right retina detached. Thanks to excellent doctors & 15 operations, I again have a good bit of usable sight, though am legally blind (a “high partial”).

    When I was a little girl, one of my grandmother’s taught me to crochet. When I was in my late 20s, I taught myself to knit.

    I was out of work for 3 years because of my sight, but learned that, using bigger yarn, even when I was almost totally blind, I could still crochet. Once in awhile sport weight yarn is OK, but I know to stick to larger yarn & lighter colors. I have learned to compensate in so many ways! I have also read about people who, like me, went blind later in life, but still learned how to continue to knit & crochet!

    I have knitted several “friendship” shawls & given them away. I also sell a few things I’ve made. I usually have some knitting or crocheting in my tote bag. I work on projects while riding the paratransit bus to/from work, & on my lunch break at work.

    So – what am I thankful for? Besides good parents & a faith-based background – & so MANY more things, I am thankful that, even with vision & hearing problems (I also wear hearing aids), my mind has not been affected. I can still bring joy to others by knitting & crocheting gifts for my friends!

    Sincerely,
