Country Crossing 8th Ward - Blanket Project
Candace Gittens has worked for several months to get ready for this successful blanket making evening. She was assisted by Carol Beckstead and Carol Lee Doramus (pictured here L to R) and about 15 women of her ward’s relief society.
They also donated finished fringe fleece blankets, crochet edged blankets, and fleece fabric. Making the kind of high quality blanket that PL distributes takes a lot of preparation before the fringe cutting can even be started.
With that in mind, Candace began early to learn the pattern and the process. She, Carol, and Carol Lee, joined several blanket making days with PL Volunteers. They learned this process, and were ready to teach others at the event.
