Knitting & Crocheting for Others

In memory of my niece that passed from Cancer I began making items for the Ronald McDonald House in Marshfield, WI Hats, Scarves, mittens, slippers, lapghans - etc. After beginning a yarn group at our local library others joined in adding their knitted & crocheted items.

Then I heard how much Handwarmers were appreciated by Chemo patients, I began crocheting them for the Jim Beck Cancer Center in Rhinelander, WI Recently I have also been making them & chemo hats for a friend and now a sister-in-law that are undergoing Chemo and a local gentleman here in Park Falls. I donate yarn to a friend that also makes lapghans for the Chemo patients.

These are both such special organizations so close to my heart.

I know when I use Lion Brand yarn the articles will be soft & washable. I hope others will find a cause that gives comfort to others in need.
