Still Someone - Supplies Nursing Home w/ Lap-ghans

I ran across this website when searching for a place to make blankets for. There website is now at

I like that they are only lapghans that are faster to make then a full size blanket.
This is from the website, URL above, "This is the blog of Still Someone, Inc. Still Someone, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to collecting and distributing homemade comfort garments to seniors in nursing homes and private care situations."
Personally, for myself, blankets are my absolute favorite thing to make. I have 5 full size blankets, just for myself. I rotate them during the winter months. Not everyone has that comfort.

Care facilities can be on the cooler side because it keeps the risk of infection down. When your ill or not feeling well it's important to be COMFORTABLE. Just that can keep your spirits up. I'm 37 but I know all about being uncomfortable, due to pain, and that's another reason why I want to make more.
