A group of volunteers at Mill Creek Park in Youngstown, Ohio, knit and crochet beautiful afghans and lap rugs to give to the needy, storing them in stacks in the visitor center library until delivery time. I just love the yarn colors and textures! Taken with a Canon Powershot G10 camera.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    Love it, Monnie. I’ve crocheted many afghans, both large and small, for Project Linus as well as for members of my family. It’s a very rewarding feeling to make something that will make a child feel warm and comfortable in tough times. Kudos to those volunteers!

  • Thanks – and I agree. I’ve made many as well over the years too, although most were for our own home or for relatives. Really should get back to doing that again!
