Crochet for Children

I learned the basic crochet stitches from my Grandmother when I was visiting her. I had told her I have always wanted to learn and when was she going to teach me. When I returned home I was practicing those basic stitches but was afraid to start a project, which lead me to a craft store that offered lessons on how to make a baby afghan. After I made my first afghan I gave it to my Grandmother to show her what I learned and to thank her for teaching me something that I could share with others. When I was looking for a way to continue practicing my mother suggested that I look into local organizations that donate to hospitals. It just so happens that one of my good friends is a child psycholgist in the oncology department at a local hospital. I had asked her if she knows if the hospital accepts blankets and other items that were crocheted or knitted, she enthusiasically said she has been looking for donations because her stock pile has run out and she would like to give kids something homemade to make them feel better. I have made three blankets for her two of them using Lion Brand yarn. They were made with the Lion Brand Baby yarn.
