Prayer Shawls , Chemo Hats ,+ Project Linus

I have been knitting since I was 21 years old . I'm now 50. I knit Prayer Shawls for my church, chemo hats and baby blankets + hats + sweaters for our local hospitals,and Linus Blankets for the children at the local Barbara Bush Children's Hospital.
I have also made fleece blankets for Project Linus , and my church for children.
I love to knit for charity especially around the holidays and brighten a child's face (or anyone's for that matter)and the recipients are so greatful,for it's in giving that we recieve.
