Blankets for Babies


I've been asked to help students (grades 9-12) with the Blankets for Babies project this year. This is a community service activity where beginning knitters learn how to either knit or crochet baby blankets. The blankets are then donated to various organizations. It's a good way to learn to knit or crochet or just practice basic skills.

No Skills
The student advisor neither knits nor crochets (then why did she volunteer for this club?), and I do both. So when she came to me to ask for help, I could see she really needed it! We knitters are a clannish bunch, and when I put out the email for help, I was flooded with responses. We now have six volunteers to work with the students.

Awesome.
