Kozy Kovers for Kids has been having a fun week also. I'm trying to get people from all 50 states and as many other countries as possible to "like" us on Facebook. Lots of new people have stopped in to say hello and I hope they will consider making a blanket for a child in need. I dropped about 40 blankets off at Kent General's Emergency Department to have on hand to give to children brought in suffering from abuse or neglect. Sad to say, they won't last long, so we need more blankets! We're also working with Kind to Kids (www.kindtokids.org) on their Blue Duffel Campaign. We'd love to be able to put a blanket in each duffel bag. So far, they have about 100 and they need about 700 more! I'm sure they won't all be from us, but we will do what we can.
I finished my first blanket of the year for Kozy Kovers too! I love this pattern. It's a Lion Brand free pattern - Child's Knitted Blanket - Jiffy Pattern #690. The eyelet design gives it a beautiful look, but the pattern is super simple and knits up quickly. I didn't have any Jiffy on hand, so I used some stash yarn - but I love the finished look of this. I'm sure I will be making others using the same pattern.
Now I'm working on another baby blanket, but this one is for a gift. Then I'll get started on the next Kozy Kover.
Remember, all are welcome to join us in some way - we love to see new people and are grateful when more people hear about us. So, spread the word! Like us on Facebook, stop by the website, email me to just say HI. And, as always, if you or anyone you know is in need of chemo caps, please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to ship some out.
