“Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.”

Once again, we are in need of granny squares to stitch together to make afghans and baby blankets. I was thinking….If one person in every state in the United States sent only one granny square, then we would have 50 additional granny squares for the month of February. Fifty granny squares would help us make 8 baby blankets!!! It may not sound like much to you, but it means a lot to those who are in need of them.
We are looking for 50 volunteers, anywhere in the U.S., who will send us at least ONE granny square each month, to join us in our effort to keep others warm. One granny square is easy and inexpensive to mail. Just fold it over, pop inside of a long envelope, put a stamp on it, and mail!
February is the month of LOVE. Our challenge is to find 50 volunteers across the nation who will pledge to send one granny square a month for the next 11 months to show some love to those in need.
We will post the first name, state, and photos of the granny squares of those who stepped up and met the challenge. Please feel free to pass this on to everyone you know that loves to crochet.
What about you? Will you join us?
We need 7 inch granny squares of any color with a white border to total an 8 inch granny square. Preferably, 4 ply worsted yarn, but we will make any yarn work. Our group generally works with a size J hook.
Granny Squares and donations of yarn can be sent to: GSOL, Att: Rita New, PO BOX 64, Jackson, N.C. 27845
