Lap Robes

I watched my unused partial skeins of leftover yarn from other projects multiply until I decided I really needed to do something with them! Then I talked to a friend who works in a nursing home, and decided to crochet lap robes using the remnants. Working a granny square pattern, I used all my yarn and gave several lap robes to a local nursing home where friends and family reside and work.

Then I went garage sale-ing - and happened upon a great amount of yarn - all of which was used for more lap robes and afghans for the nursing home.

The varied colors cheer the residents and staff. All donations are gladly received. Since they're washable, they are easy to care for.

I do this anonymously. It is not something I want credit for. I don't deliver the lap robes myself. It is a true gift.
