Hi,



I recently started crocheting newborn hats and booties for a charity I found called Stitches From the Heart (http://www.stitchesfromtheheart.org). They send knitted/crocheted clothes and blankets to hospitals for preemies/newborns all over the US. It's really fun work, and the items are quite quick to whip up, it's kind of addicting! And I love to think that somewhere a little brand new baby will wear what I made, and hopefully be a little cozier because of it.



So I was wondering if there were other charities out there that any of you were making projects for? Or maybe you make clothes/blankets and donate them to Goodwill, etc?



Please share!



Thanks!

Here in Sioux Falls, South Dakota we have a program called "Warm Up Sioux Falls." You crochet a 9x9 square and then a group of ladies stitches them together. Then the afghans are given to the homeless.

The squares go pretty quick but I have trouble sticking to it. Any ideas to keep up the momentum?
