Charity Crafts: Knit/Crochet Blocks

Just inside Michael's door sits a box of blocks. Knit and crocheted in a variety of colors, the blocks wait for one purpose: to become a blanket for someone in need. Michael's Warm Up America! program is the perfect opportunity to do charity work. As an added bonus you get rid of leftover yarn.

The requirements are simple: knit or crochet a 7" x 9" block out of 4-ply acrylic yarn. A full size afghan has forty-nine squares; seven strips of seven. The blocks are joined by volunteers, directed by the Store Event Coordinator.
