Love in the language of yarn

Searching for the terms "Syrian refugees" and "crochet" in September I found Dianne Jones' wonderful project using 8" acrylic yarn squares -- knit, crocheted, or woven -- from needle workers all over the world to make blankets for children in Syrian refugee camps in Turkey and Jordan. Since then I have crocheted and mailed several hundred of these squares and told everyone I know about this project. I begin and end every day by making a square, praying for the child who will receive it.

I use lots of Lion yarn for the squares -- especially Homespun for its warmth and bright colors. Please let Lion yarn fans know about this project -- there is a desperate need since winter is very cold in these camps.

Information is available on Dianne's blog:

Thank you!
