I actually purchased a yarn winder.... greatest thing! I spent an entire day with my daycare kids going through my yarn and winding it. Now, I have them stored in see through containers in my closet. I always hated it when you start crocheting and it gets hung up.... when you wind it, it does away with that.
Soldiers Angels also accepts items for Veteran's and Soldiers. I have been making tons of stuff.... The list changes, but I mainly am now working on lap afghans and stocking caps for the various Veteran's facilities.
They also want: infant items for expectant military personnel or their spouses, wheelchair totes and ornaments.
If you are interested, please contact them or drop me a line...
