I am amazed every day by the generosity of knitters and crocheters. The Schuyler Blanket Project has grown beyond anything I could have hoped for in such a short period of time. Not only are the knitters/crocheters out there stepping up, but people who don’t knit and crochet are asking how they can help. I’ve received offers of space to sew blankets in, donations of yarn, donations of money to purchase supplies. It seems that most of us know someone who has lost a child. It’s not a club to which I wanted to belong and I certainly wouldn’t want to nominate anyone else for membership. However, since it happens, I am comforted by the thought that so many people want to help bring a bit of warmth to those who are grieving.
I’ve started a list of links on the sidebar. Some of them are resources for grieving families and those who love them. Some are resources for knitters/crocheters who would like to get involved. If you know of a relevant source, please feel free to share it in the comments.
