Donations using Lion Brand Patterns

I don't belong to any particular group or anything but have used many of your online patterns over the past 3 years since aquiring my PC.

I have been using your yarn for at least 20-25 years. I learned to crochet at a very young age and to my surprise became very good at it.

My Mom belonged to a Cottage Industry business, so many of my projects made their way into that shop. Most of my items did go to Church or Charity organizations though. I have always made donations of hats & mittens to St. Vincents de Paul's at Christmas and local shelters throughout the year.

Recently, I have been helping a single father at my church that has five young children. I have used the baby poncho pattern, mitten pattern, hat & scarf patterns, and of course, afghans for the cold winters of Wisconsin.

You do not have to belong to a group to help others!
