Crochet for Charity!

Interested in crocheting for charity?  Some of my Ravelry friends are!  Members of my Ravelry group 'GoCrochet with Ellen Gormley' are organizing a square share... you make as many squares as you want toward the effort and mail them in to be assembled.  This time, the group is considering donating to Project Linus. The National organization supplies new, handmade blankets to children with serious medical conditions or children who were traumatized in some way.  There are 371 chapters in the United States (if you aren't interested at this time, look up your local chapter and consider donating in your area!)

Right now, the Ravelers are discussing which of my free patterns they want to use, then a color scheme will be chosen and a plan made.  If you are interested, please visit the Ravelry group. You'll need to be a Ravelry member to participate in this particular effort with my friends, but it's free.

I keep saying I'm going to get on Ravelry more but our computer is so bloody slow. When we upgrade in a few months you'll be sure to see me on there!

P.S. I finally got to see your episode of Knit and Crochet Now! It recorded last night(or this morning) and I was watching and was so surprized and excited to see you on there. LOL I pointed and yelled to the kids "That's the crochet designer I bought the yarn from!" Lol...ok..maybe I was a bit too excited but it was so cool to see you on there! Keep on being awesome!
P.P.S. the yarn I cought from you....I've used for several baby projects. I like that several of the babies I've crocheted for are connected by the same skeins of yarn.
