Hey everyone, I have recently found a charity that I was making Squares for and was wondering if anyone would like to help. You can send me your squares and I will add them in with mine and deliver them all. The Orginization is called Clicking for a cause and is based in Durham, NC. It is a volunteer ministy where members take all of the finished squares and assemble blankets. Here is what they ask for: Our primary gifts to others are BLOCK AFGHANS, and we are always looking for more BLOCKS. You need not assemble an afghan yourself; our members will do this. Simply create blocks of washable “worsted weight” yarn in any bright colors. Use knitting or crocheting to fashion the blocks, whatever you wish. Please leave a “tail” of yarn about 18 inches long at the beginning and end of your blocks. We will use this to sew the afghan together. Most Important: the finished block size must be 7 inches by 9 inches for ease of assembly. Measure carefully! Let me know if you are interested and I will let you know where you can send them! Thank you in advance for your help.
Hi all, been catching up with some donation things I did in the past few weeks, for Sept Delivery, to one of our local hospitals, and to the Emerg. Preg. Center here as well.. Im addig more to it, as this month goes on... The first one shown, is a preemie sized blankee, (as requested by a contact I have at my preferred hospital) and is adorned with a matching hat, as they all arel....the hats were fun , fast, and easy to make! I used smaller balls, and partial skeins on them.the first one is made from two strands of baby yarn, asst. colors, held togheter throughout.The hats take very little yarn I found out too. which is a perfect way to use up those partials and balls... Second shown, is a baby afghan made with all small 3 inch grannys, trimmed and bordered in pink! This also can be classified as a preemie blankee, i think, albeit a bit bigger than the first. I love the border in pink, so included of course, a pink hat! The third afghan was made with scraps and balls, of caron simply soft, for which I didn't have enough of it for anything else, and wanted to use it all up. All the solid color centers are caron ss, and the trim would be Hobby Lobbys I Love this Yarn, in white. THe hat that went the best with it is all white. and last but not least, is the fourth afghan, made from again, the two strands of the baby yarns held together.The border again, is HL I love this Yarn, in white. Then I made some ( loomed and crocheted)hats to go the the emerg. preg center, they will accompany anymore small baby afghans i send or am able to make in the mean time, or they will go as is, as simply hats! or I might add some little baby socks to them and make sets, see what i can do in that respect! so, hoping this has been nice eye candy for you, I loved working in pastels for a change, AND still am not out of baby yarns to use, lol Thanks for looking, hope it spurs you on to donate to your local favorite charity as well!!
