May Donations

I had a fairly successful month, and here's my contribution to the new goal of 700 by Sunday. I finished 8 afghan squares:

2 for VT Tech, 5 for WUA, and 1 for Rebuilding Greensburg (the one in the middle of the picture). I will try to get most of these sent off this week.

I also finished 6 preemie blankets:

These have been donated to my crochet guild for now, but over the summer they will be going to the Danbury Hospital's NICU. There are individual pictures of most of the blankets on my blog (although you might have to scroll down aways to see them). So that makes a total of 14 items for May.

I also wanted to mention that I had a couple of posts on my blog last week that I think you all might be interested in (if you don't read my blog already). One was a post on why I knit and crochet for charity. The second one was an announcement of a new "along" I am hosting this summer called Summer of Squares. It's for anyone (like us) who are making afghan squares this summer. I am asking that everyone donate at least one square to charity over the course of the summer, although if I get enough interest I would love to see the group make a blanket to donate as well. And the best part is that there will be prizes! Please let me know if you are interested, and I will send you a Blogger invite.

I am still working on my June goals, although they may end up involving some projects that aren't for charity. I'm sure I will have time to keep making afghan squares, though!

Awesome! I love those squares. You know you're talented when you can make squares wonderful. And those blankets are SO adorable.

I am not used to this blogspot thing where you have to go find other people's blogs, so thank you for linking to your blog here. I will start following.

You rock :)
