This is something that I've been doing since I started knitting /crocheting in 2008. I figured if I only made items for myself I would run out of things to make so I started knitting and crocheting for many charities.

Listed below are some groups I've knitted or crocheted for.

Volunteers make lap afghans and greeting cards for seniors to bring comfort to them. They are distributed to nursing homes and home care patients. I've made a couple lap afghans for them. One of them can be found on my Crochet Blog HERE.
