Handmade lap blankets needed for Seniors in Nursing Homes during the Holiday Season!
I am posting this for a great Community Campaign that is taking place in Washington. It was started by a great lady who believes in giving back to seniors who are in nursing homes during the holidays. I hope you can help her out! Here's the info:

Wrap a Senior in LOVE

Can a simple act of kindness change one person's life? - Yes it can!
Many seniors in nursing homes are alone, without family and without some holiday cheer. Please help us make a difference in the lives of Seniors in Washington Nursing Homes, by donating a hand knitted or crocheted wrap (lap blanket) as a holiday gift to Acknowledge, Remember and Honor them during the holiday season

Deadline: December 10th
Size: no larger than 5 x 5 ft
Colors preferred: Warm colors no black please
Must be machine washable!

Blankets can be sent directly to

what are considered to be warm colors?
I would love to make a blanket for seniors, as I am leaning towards that area of work (i will be finishing my bachelor's degree in August, with my last class being my internship). I was an unpaid activity assistant at a long term care facility (nursing home) this summer and I loved it. I went back to visit and help out recently.
my name on Ravelry is Eowyn1

otn- a beautiful turquoise blanket in moss stitch (for previously mentioned cousin's coming second child, due late july 2012)
FO- a few hats in the round(just taught myself to join without twisting)
to try next- an entrelac blanket with yarn someone gave my mom
something else fun- making a blanket in the round
