Local woman seeks yarn donations for blankets

January 29, 2014

Through the years, longtime Blackfoot resident Pauline Sweet has crocheted nearly 500 afghans for babies, veterans, senior citizens and others in need, and she's still going strong. She started making the blankets in the 1980s for babies in the small Mexican fishing village of Kino Bay, where she and her husband Dwain spent months away from the cold Idaho winters for many years.
These days, Pauline's focus is crocheting lap blankets for veterans and senior citizens in the area; however, she is running low on yarn and is hoping that anyone with yarn to spare will donate some to her.
