Give & Take Knits
Summary/Artist Statement:I have always been passionate about creating items, as well as helping others. Knitting and crochet began as a hobby for me (as it did for many others). I decided to begin selling in my community once I began receiving many compliments on my handcrafted items.
Being a social worker by day, I wanted to find a way to incorporate my love of helping others into my hobby. As a huge fan of business plans such as TOMS, I decided to do something similar, but on a smaller, handmade scale.
I create one square for every purchase. One square. I know, it doesn't seem like much. One square, though, can be a part of something so much bigger. One square can combine with others to create a loving blanket that can warm someone's body and soul.
My goal is create these patchwork-style knit & crochet blankets to donate that are complied from purchases from all over the country, or even the world. What a wonderful feeling to know that people from different areas and walks of life have come together to create something to benefit someone else (someone they don't even know!)
