viking305, That is a wonderful idea. Too bad more places don't do that. thanks for reading and sharing with your sister.

L M Reid from Ireland on February 10, 2012:

What a great article for all people who love to crochet. I will be passing these links to my sister who loves knitting and crochet.

I was in a hospital waiting room the other day. They had a basket there with wool and needles in it. There were also plenty of knitted squares. The notice said that anyone could knit a square which would be used for charity.

And not to worry if they were called before they finished a line as there would be others who would finish it!

Thought that was a great idea

leann2800, You should try one of the simple hats. they are easier than you'd think. Hats were the first thing I tried after I started with afghans. Once you've crocheted one that says for the beginner, than work your ways up. Thanks for commenting.

leann2800 on February 10, 2012:

These patterns are so cute. Right now, I can only crochet blankets but I am really inspired to make one of those little hats. Thanks for sharing.
