this is my first time doing anything like this. the other day i decided that i needed to quit talking about wanting to make a difference and actually start doing something about it. so i found this charity http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/warmup.html as of now i have several balls of yarn ready to go and a few friends interested in helping.

all you have to do is knit or crochet a 7"x9" square. any color any pattern. i will be crocheting squares, accepting squares, and stitching together squares. i will also be accepting baby blankets and lap blankets. if youre interested in helping pm me.

the finished blankets will be sent to nursing homes, womens shelters and any other organization who is in need of blankets. since i dont know of any organizations around my home in germany im sending all finished products to warming up america so they can be distributed to shelters across america.

i will try my hardest to keep this post as updated as possible on the progress.
thank you so much for your interest.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

If I knew how to crochet I would deffinately help you, but I just wanted to let you know how great this is!  I myself work for a Domestic Violence Women's shelter here in the USA and these women are happy to get anything, as most of the time they come to us with just the clothes on their backs. Know that your blankets will go to good use and put a smile on someone's face! Smiley
