December 2016 Newsletter

Christmas Blanketeer Appreciation 

We will lift off the Christmas Season early this year with a special blanket making day and Christmas luncheon.  Please join us by noon on December 5th at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, 3900 South 2500 East for light lunch and dessert. 

Shop With A Cop

We are pleased to be able to participate again this year in the Christmas “Shop With a Cop” event.  We have joined with Officer Darren Orr (the coordinator of this event) and many other volunteers who give their time and talents to make this a happy Christmas gift for children.   This year we will donate 110 blankets, all hand made by blanketeers, to help give a sense of security and comfort to kids.

Thanks to Blanketeers:

“My son Arden was recently in the NICU at St. Mark’s for almost two weeks.  We received a blanket from Project Linus and wanted to first thank you and second see how we could become involved. …”

“Words cannot express our gratitude for the time, effort and thoughtfulness of Joy and Barbara in making these darling blankets.  The children will absolutely cherish and love them!'

 Riverton Blanket Day

For those of you who are located in the South Area of Salt Lake Valley please remember that you are always invited to participate with Lynn Milsap's blanket making day at the Riverton Senior Center.  This month they will be meeting on December 9th from 9:30 to noon.   Usually, they meet on the 4th Friday of every month. 

Hints and Tips: 

There are lots of fun patterns for blanket edges on fleece.  This one is two rows of two double crochets in each hole, including the first row thru the holes.  Topped with a single crochet round.

 PL does not accept fleece blankets with knotted edges.  For a smooth blanket use the fringe loop or the western fringe.  For patterns go to:
