|I taught myself how to knit in 2009 and haven't looked back since. Along
with my Schnauzer, Schnapps, I run Delaware Head Huggers and Kozy
Kovers for Kids. I have a blog www.knittingwithschnapps.blogspot.com where I share many of my designs for free.
Delaware Head Huggers is a splinter group of Head Huggers, an
organization that collects handmade hats and caps and delivers
them to cancer centers, hospitals and other facilities, as well as
to individuals, throughout Delaware and beyond.
Kozy Kovers for Kids is an organization that collects handmade
blankets and quilts to be given to foster care agencies and area
Hospitals and police departments. Our goal is that each child entering the foster care
system receives a blanket that may be kept forever. Many of
these children enter foster care with nothing of their own and
we are hopeful that this helps ease the transition during a very
dificult time. We also try to ensure that any child seen in an
Emergency Room due to abuse or neglect may have a blanket
to help them through a frightening time.
