project linus

I have just recently joined my local chapter of the charity Project Linus. This organization knits or crochets blankets for local hospitals that give these blankets to children who are patients at the hospitals. I love to crochet and thought I should share that love of a warm blanket to those in need.

Recently, a friend of mine has just found out that her three year old niece has been diagnosed with cancer. I've learned there is a great need for crocheted beanies (caps) for this age group. So I will busy with making beanies as well as blankets.

I encourge everyone to take along a bag full of these projects with them everywhere. It's so easy and fun. Most of all you will be giving a gift of love to those in need.
