Are you ready for the challenge?
I hope so because this year is going to be a big one. In the 2019 Crochet Challenge for Warm Up America we will be working through a Lap blanket for the wounded warriors at Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda, MD. Not only will we make them a lap blanket but I’ll also include a knit hat pattern so you can make them a hat too!
Today I’m chatting with Mary Colucci, Executive Director of the Warm Up America! Foundation and you’ll get to hear the first news of the Challenge for Warm Up America 2019 as the details are beginning to unfold. She shares information about the Walter Reed Hospital so you know exactly who your efforts will benefit and we’ll answer some frequently asked questions about the challenge.
