I have more yarn! I will keep crocheting until a) I run out of yarn, or b) someone tells me to stop. This is a good excuse to use up the yarn and to clean out my closets. I have made several afghans over the years just because I enjoy doing it. I have 'blanketed' my family so, I guess that it is now time to 'blanket' Afghanistan. Two of the six afghans that are in the mail are small. All are acrylic, easy to clean, and durable. Since I cannot send my dinner to the Afghans, I'll send them blankets. I am more than happy to help and might have recruited a friend of mine for the project. I'll email her today and let her know that this is an ongoing project. I am familiar with the American Friends Service Committee, from about 30 years ago. My mom did draft counseling during the Vietnam War, and I went to demonstrations and volunteered at the Chicago Peace Council. So, you might say that I am an old hand at helping.
