Blankies & More

I have become a blanketeer for the organization Project Linus, which donates hand-made blankets to children in hospitals and children who have lost a parent in the military service. I am so excited to be making afghans for such a worthy cause. I’m almost finished with the first blanket I am going to donate, and I’m ready to start on the next one.
I went crazy at Wal-mart because they had a no-name brand acrylic yarn pounders on sale for less than four dollars; so I bought as much as I could, which rounded out to be around twenty-five pounders. I always love buying patterns and yarn for afghans, but usually don’t have anyone in mind to make blankets for. Now I can make as many as I want and donate them to someone who will cherish my afghans. It truly is more blessed to give than receive: I’m having so much fun.
