Lapgans for cancer patients


Recommended Posts

We have a group in town that helps women pay for mamograms. They also help with wigs and hats for cancer patients. Recently they helped me pay for the tests that I needed to have. I was wondering if any of you wonderful villers would like to help me make lapgans and hats to give to them. When I asked them what size they needed I was told that people come in all shapes and sizes, andy size blanket would be great. Any help would be great!! Thank you!!:hug

I will take any blankets that I can give them, they try to make sure that all people have a lapgan to take with them when they go for their treatments. A lot of the treatment rooms are cold. I am working on the 5th one so far. Thank you for offering to help. :hug

You are always so giving, I'm happy to be able to give to you for a charity for once. I hope you get alot of responses as the summer ends and the school years has people's lives settling down and in for crocheting. (HUGS)

I'm in- I just have a couple of questions if you can help;

 

Do the lapghans stay at the hospital and are re-used (need to be darker and sturdy)? Or are they for individuals to keep (maybe a little more decorative)?

 

Also, do you have color or yarn preferences? I have never made a lapghan only afghans, can you give me an approximate size for a typical lapghan?

 

And one last one for you, sorry. :eek Is this ongoing or is there a time frame?

 

It's starting to cool off so this is the perfect time for this project. I will PM when I get a couple together. :hug

The blankets are for individuals, they can be any color any size as decorative or as plain as you would like to make them. I think that acrylic yarn would be best as it is easier to wash and care for. Lapgans that I have done have been all sizes. baby blanket sizes are usually good. 36 X 36, up to 45 X 45. cheryl at Wyoming angels said that all sizes are good as people come in diffrent shapes and sizes. If you have any more questions please ask. I hope this helps.

Hmm, 36 X 36...sounds like that extra big granny square I've always wanted to try. And a great way to use up stash, too.:yarn Count me in!

 

I will pm for your address when I have it completed. Probably in a month or so.
