Casting on Love is my personal charity group which I have had for a number of years. I have now decided to use the power of blogging to gather more friends to participate. Casting on Love is designed to use our talents of knitting, crochet or quilting. With them we can meet 3 basic needs common to both humans and animals. Comfort, security, & warmth.

Little Pal Patches
As children we are not yet equipped to handle the many challenges of being seriously ill, or being part of a family who have severe emotional or physical needs.
One simple thing we can do is knit, crochet, or quilt a little comfort for them. When they see that they are getting a soft and colorful gift made especially for them, their little faces light up.
For the children who have frequent and long hospital stays, these blankets are appreciated in an atmoshpere which can be a little cold both visually and physically.
The size we make is usually a lap-ghan which is a bit smaller than a single bed sized.
You should see the smiles when these are delivered!
These also go to children whose home life may be in distress and parents are in need of help. They also go to women's shelters for the children there.
See the Little Pal Patches tab at the top of the page for instruction to donate to this division of Casting on Love.
