Babes and Blankets
Babes and Blankets is dedicated to knitting and crocheting blankets, scarves and other items for donation to organizations such as Binky Patrol, which donates baby blankets to hospitals in our area, and the Red Scarf Project, which donates scarves to foster kids in college. We also teach members of the community to knit and crochet. We produced knitted blankets, baby blankets, hats, scarves, socks, and gloves for local homeless shelters, foster programs, and hospitals. We also provide stress relief for the college community, as knitting is very methodical and therapeutic.
We meet once a week for about 2 hours. At the meetings, we knit and crochet items for donation. We also teach people how to knit or crochet; we have supplies for them to borrow so that they can learn. It is a great stress reliever for the Scripps community, and helps out the local community by providing knitted goods.
