Several Projects/Several Groups

Several years ago, I was given money for yarn so that I could knit hats/caps for St. Margaret' is a Day Center for Woman and Children in South Bend, In and is organized by the Episcopal Church. It has grown so in these years since - a noon, full dinner, meal is served every day - the woman can do laundry, shower, work to pass their GED, council for jobs, etc.
I have knit hundreds of caps for the Neonatal Department of Memorial Hospital in South Bend. I knit Chemo Caps when asked, and I oversee the Prayer Shawl group at St. Michael & All Angel Episcopal church in South Bend. So I keep busy doing whatever project I feel like doing - oh, and I have knit 7 sweaters for the Guidepost project for kids....I am not a FANCY knitter - just plain and fancy!
