- Binky patrol-afghans for children and teenagers
- Head hugger- chemo caps
- Purple project (shaken baby survivors)
Mending Hearts Ministry chooses different orgainzations to donate their finished knitted and crochetted items. Each item is made with abundant love knowing it will benefit someone. Wether experienced or a beginner, it is impactful to know you are making an item that will be a blessing to others. Compassion wills most of us to want to help those less fortunate but with limited resources might feel they can not afford to give. Knitting/Crochetting for charities has a huge impact on the lives of others, knowing they recieved a hat, blanket, scarf or afghan made with them in mind. So even the youngest participant can make a difference in someones life.
Knitting is a method by which thread or yarn may be turned into cloth or other fine crafts. Knitted fabric consists of consecutive rows of loops, called stitches
Crochet is a process of creating fabric from yarn, thread, or other material strands using a crochet hook. The word is derived from the French word "crochet", meaning hook. Hooks can be made of materials such as metals, woods or plastic and are commercially manufactured as well as produced by artisans.
