Unfortunately, not everyone I know was as lucky. Family and friends have homes in varying degrees of being destroyed. My grandmother had heart surgery within days of the storm and has no heat (electricity) to go home to. Every shelter in the area is filled but many are sleeping in homes with no heat, power, gas or even a ground floor in livable conditions.
Once you've knit at least 9 squares, they can be sewn together to form a small baby or lap blanket. Add more to make a larger blanket.
Each square uses approximately 150 yards of worsted weight yarn. Use more than one color to destash some of those leftovers :o)
