I'm sure that you'll answer the questions just fine, but for me, I joined the project because it was a neat thing to be involved in something with another group of like-minded people. We all have a heart for giving.
I think the blanket is symbolic because just as it took many hands to complete it, it takes everyone pitching in...helping each other...in a world filled with sorrow.
I know that as I worked on one of the blankets, I remember thinking how safe and warm I felt beneath it. It's my hope that the recipients will feel a sense of security as well and know that there are people who care.
I think the message that knitting for charity sends to the community is that we all have talents. Put them together, and we can have an impact on the world. Sure, our few blankets might not seem to make a huge difference in the world at large, but to touch even one life means that our efforts accomplished something.
Sandy, thanks for all you do. By organizing these blankets, you've given us all the direction we needed. One idea...many hands...a wonderful thing indeed.
