Besides hosting a weekly 'Knit and Crochet Group' at Farmacy every Wednesday, Carroll Gardeners Rosalie Wysokowski and Harriet Libstag have been involved with We Care Blankets, a 501 (c)3 charity organization. Based on Long Island, the organizations mission is to provide a handcrafted blanket and/or hat to every child who is undergoing cancer treatment.
Harriet and Rosalie and their fellow neighborhood volunteers have been busily knitting. Their hand-made items have been delivered by We Care Blankets to local hospitals like Maimonides, Wyckoff, Lutheran and Brookdale.
Of course, all the hours spent lovingly knitting these hats can never be replaced, even if the yarn can.
But how about giving Harriet, Rosalie and their friend Ruth some encouraging words to let them know they rock?
