No, I’m not pregnant. Nor is anyone else I know. But I’ve been making baby blankets lately. Why? Well, because one of the women in my Saturday morning knitting/crochet group volunteers with the WIC program (Women, Infants and Children). Our group (affectionately named Purl Jam) takes scraps from former projects and makes baby blankets and other baby items to give to these women who probably don’t have anyone in their lives that would make their child a homemade blanket.
Here’s the one I completed today – my third since I joined the group! As you may recall, I went to this group for the first time as one of my “artist dates” and enjoyed the women so much, I go every weekend I’m in town.
