Project Linus® Blanket Donations

Bernat® has already received boxes full of wonderful Project Linus® blanket donations from the trusty "blanketeers!" The volunteers have not only done an amazing job with our suggested free knit and crochet patterns, but have also gone the extra mile to modify the patterns – and even create their own designs!

The diversity of blanketeers is astonishing, ranging from three-year-old Zoe from Vine Grove, KY who chose the yarns her grandmother made into a blanket, to 103-year-old Lefteria D. from Eddystone, PA who amazed us with her skill and reminded us that you are never too old – or too young! – to craft. Veteran blanketeer Rhoda R. from Havertown, PA is in her twelfth year of blanket-making for Project Linus®. She shares encouragement, explaining "this has always provided me with a great way to relax and create and, at the same time, provide warmth and comfort for others. It is truly a double blessing."

We have been photographing the blankets as they arrive from across North America and uploading some of our favorites to our Flickr account, which you can find a slideshow of below.

We're extremely grateful at Bernat® for all of the spectacular generosity and skill blanketeers have shown so far. We will continue to collect blankets for Project Linus® until August, 2011.
