Have you crocheted for a long time and now have run out of things to crochet for others and yourself? We all love to find a new pattern to try or recreating a special one we have done so many times. So here is an opportunity to use your talent and share with others.

There are many charities out there that would love to have us join them with our giving hearts. They need and want the crocheted items such as hats, scarves, mittens, booties, baby blankets and sweaters, to mention only a few that could be made up and used and are definitely needed. Some items are small and making kitty toys gives you an opportunity to use up some of your scraps of yarn.

Parents through out our world love to wrap their babies in a nice soft, warm crocheted blanket. With our economy as it is, not all can afford a blanket or even the yarn to make one. There are charities that use crocheted toys to comfort a child in crises when their house burns down or in some other kind of a crisis. Yes, these crocheted toys are small items but they give the child something tangible to hold onto and love.

Some more charities to think about are adults and children in homeless shelters and they, too, are in need of hats, mittens, and scarves to keep warm. Many of these people are forgotten or overlooked and a hat or scarf could be made easily and quickly from a simple easy crochet pattern. The hats, mittens, and scarves would help keep frostbite away and also remind them that there folks that care. Let’s crochet up a little love.

There are the non-profit hospitals that have babies in their nursery. The parents get to take their precious newborn home but still have no soft, warm crocheted blanket for their little bundle of joy. These hospitals would love to have a good supply of crocheted baby blankets.

Then there are cancer patients who could use soft hats for when they lose their hair to keep their heads warm. Also, soft yarn and pretty colors help cheer the cancer patients in a very difficult time of their lives.

Then there are the animal shelters that would love some cat toys for their furry homeless friends. Animal shelters do not have budgets that allow them to purchase toys. It does not take much yarn to crochet a tiny mouse from simple easy crochet patterns for the kitties.

We, as crocheting people, live among the less fortunate, low income and homeless people. There are non-profit groups and organizations that would love to have all of us join in and share our blessings and talents. Let’s share our simple easy crochet patterns, ideas and tips to create and pass along our gifts to some that may have never known the warmth of a crocheted blanket.

There is a saying I’d like to share: “Busy hands are happy hands”. We who crochet know real well that is so true.

Let us not forget that we have been given a special talent, a gift that we love to share and create. Finishing a pattern is so satisfying and it does not get much better than that for those of us who love to crochet.
