Knitting & Crocheting for Others

I knit & crochet hats, mittens,scarves, lapghans & slippers for the Ronald McDonald House in Marshfield, WI in memory of my 3 year-old-niece Jenna. I also began making Angel Suckers (an angel that goes over a Tootsie Pop). I belong to a yarn group that meets every Monday evening & Thursday afternoon at our local Library. The ladies also contribute handmade items to the boxes I send down via a member of our local Hospital.

Recently I have heard that while doing Chemotherapy the hands get very cold - I have begun making Handwarmers (they look like the Leg Warmers we used to make/wear). I use odds & ends of yarn to make them colorful. I have heard from the Cancer Center of Rhinelander, WI (where I am from) that the people really enjoy receiving these as they help keep their hands warm and it warms their heart that someone cares to do this for them.

We don't have a set amount of items that we make - though I do take pictures of items being sent, it is quite amazing how they do add up. I hope other groups & knitter/crocheters would find a group that could use handmade items.

Thank you for promoting something so wonderful --- HELPING OTHERS WITH A GIFT GOD HAS GIVEN US - the ability to knit & crochet.
