Wrapped in Love

A group of New Academy Charter School students are HAPPILY HOOKED! Wrapped in Love is an organization that make blankets and hats for people who are sick. Our students learned the basics of crocheting such as how to make a slip knot, chaining, and double hooks. They each crocheted a smaller square and each square was attached together to make one blanket.
