I'm making lap blankets and donating them to the VA Hospital in my area that I volunteer at. Basically it is one big granny square and I use a size H hook. I have started a red, white and blue one. I'm sure I will make a few of these. I also did one in the Cleveland Browns colors. Next I'm thinking about doing a camo one too. I saw the yarn the other day. I feel really good about doing this project. I make lap blankets for seniors too!

What a great way to give back.  Keep up the good work.  I make hats and donate them to the local hosp. cancer center.  The camo yarn made great hats, I'm sure the yarn would make great looking lap blankets.    A fellow crocheter.  CraftyScout609

Hi ' I just located this forum, and glad I did. I've been crocheting for over 50 years. My mom taught me. Since the beginning of 2008, I've crocheted over 200 blankets, caps and booties for babies. I donate them to Children and Family Services in my area. Also to women shelters and to teen homes where there are babies and toddlers. I only crochet for babies, because a lot of mommies can't afford blankets.  I have 4 PIPS, (projects in progress) waiting for my yarn order to come in. I like Vanna White yarn from Lion Brand, and also Caron soft.


I hope to stay connected. As soon as I complete my next blanket, I will post on Facebook and this forum for all to see.

Great to be a part of this community....dancinggirl75

This is awesome :-)
Do you have any pics of the camo blanket?  I am about to make one for my friend's baby boy, but have also been working on some things for various charities with scrap yarn.
