Crafty Projects to Celebrate a Transplantiversary

It is the week of my husband’s lung transplantiversary and it is time to celebrate!

For more on how we handled his lung transplant experience check out his essay in the NY Times or his website.

For more on how on my reaction to that essay in the NY Times, go here.

On how knitting helped me through that crazy time, go here.

That’s all very well and good Monica, but what if I want to get my craft on?

Bring awareness to organ transplant and make a cute yellow duck! More on the project, including free knitting, crochet, and sewing patterns can be found here: The Little Yellow Duck Project

Crochet a lung key chain to celebrate? Yeah, why not!

And just because…best Instagram of superheroes knitting ever.


My name is Monica Rodriguez and I can’t stop fidgeting with yarn. I live in Albuquerque, NM with my husband. We belong to two terriers who manage to cuddle us just enough to keep us from revolting.

Let me know what you think!
