When I have down time at work I’m always working on some sort of crochet project. The project I’m currently working on is super special to me because of who it’s for; Officer Ames. I have been working with Officer Ames now for about 5 years (probably more to be honest). I first worked with him in a big communications center and only knew him by voice and call sign, but even then every officer a dispatcher works with are like family. One night just like every other night worked before, my friend was working our busiest radio, and she had a unit asking for an additional unit because the driver was being uncooperative. Officer Ames went en route to assist his fellow officer; shortly after getting on scene shots were fired and Officer Ames had been shot
Officer Ames saw me working on a blanket I was crocheting for a custom order and asked if he could order a blanket from me. I was honored and of course agreed. Now to say this blanket has been a pain in the butt is an understatement HAHA!! but I just remember who it’s for and what he’s done for me and everyone else in our community and I continue to pour all the love and prayer into it while I work. I will hopefully be finished with the blanket in the next week or so, and I’m so excited to show you guys!
