I joined a knitting group at church this year. We're knitting blankets and caps for the Greater Boston Project Linus, which gives blankets to premature infants and other children in need of comfort. Our church has a quilting project too, for cancer patients. The baby quilts that are made by this project are handed off to Project Linus. Last week, some of our group went on a field trip to The Yarn Shop in Uxbridge, MA where we heard heartwarming stories of how Project Linus made a direct difference in the lives of some of the staff. We have a new stash of yarn, and the store set up a photo shoot for some of the work we've done so far. I knitted the blanket that looks like an Amish quilt and a plain pink blanket, and I quilted the baby blanket at the bottom of the picture (it appears elsewhere on this site).
