Afghans made with Luv'n'sts

While I do my volunteer work at St. Luke's South Shore Hospital I keep my crochet hook and knitting needles busy. Much of the yarn I use I get from people who just have no use for it anymore. Then I add my own yarn, Lion Brand Wool-Ease. When I want to add a fluffy touch I use Lion Brand Jiffy Chunky bulky-weight yarn.

I make lap robes for the Veteran's Hosp. in Wood,Wi. I also make afghans for children in the Cancer ward in the Racine,Wi. hospitals. For the Vets I crochet stars just to add a touch to the afghans. To the children's afghans I either crochet little flowers and scatter them around or sew some iron-on badges depending on the age of the child or whether it's a boy or girl.

I get a lot of good feeling doing these projects.
