Warm Up America!

I happened to find a website called in a magazine - and thought it a great idea to bring to our craft group. We knit or crochet 7 x 9" "squares" - crochet them together in strips and then crochet the strips together to form an afghan. These are distributed to day care centers, nursing homes, battered women's shelters, adult care centers, and the like --- several of us worked on this over the summer, both at home and at our weekly get-togethers. We put out a call in our development for donations of pastel knitting worsted, and people were wonderfully generous. Last month our project was completed and we mailed it in to Warm Up America! headquarters. We were thrilled with our result and felt we had made some small contribution.
