  1. Our ‘Close Knit’ knitting and crochet group makes bed sized Afghans for the Wounded Soldiers at Richmond’s VA Hospital.
    We knit or crochet 6″x9″ rectangles to put together(49/Afghan) for one Afghan. We sent 36 Afghans and 2 Lap sized to be given out today. We usually make 15-20 Afghans per month. We meet at the Culpeper Library on the last Thursday of the month…from 10-12.

  10. Your tribute is superb. I’m so in awe that you were able to visit in person on this special day. It must have been something heart wrenching, yet touching. As always, your photos speak thousands and thousands of words.
