Hello from CT!

I joined this group a few days ago, and I thought I should briefly introduce myself. My name is Priscilla, and I live in Connecticut. I have been knitting and crocheting most of my life, and I donate a lot of what I make to charity. I have been a member of 25 Things for Charity for almost a year, which is how I found all of you. I also belong to a local crochet guild, and we do 3 big donations a year. We donate chemo hats and preemie blankets to our local hospital throughout the year, and we donate hat, mitten and scarf sets to the Salvation Army every December. But I am also willing to help other causes, as I have time.

I have one FO already to add to your April total - a crocheted baby blanket that I will be donating to Project Linus some time next week. The blanket is 24"X36", and I used Lion Brand Pound of Love in purple and white.

I have made 2 squares for WUA since I found all of you, but I hope to get a few more done over the next week, so I will post a picture of all of them at a later time. And I had time yesterday to get some Red Heart in Claret and Simply Soft in Lemonade, so I hope to start on some 12" squares this weekend.

I will post FOs over here, but you are all more than welcome to visit my blog as well for progress updates. I do have one question - do you count items when they are donated or when they are finished? I finish items all the time for my guild, but I don't always turn them in until we have a date when they will actually be donated.

Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this community.
I have a goal of making 100 items for charity this year, so I am very excited to have found you all. I am really looking forward to participating and adding to those monthly totals!

Well hello there! We are so excited to have you!

And that is a gorgeous afghan.

As to your question, we tally once you post the picture...so, as soon as I am done commenting, I'll add to our count. It's kind of an honor system that you will or already did send the item off...but all we can go by is the pictures :)

Hope that makes sense. If you have any other questions, just ask!

Yes, that makes a lot of sense, and that should work well for me with my guild donations. Thanks!
