Hello There Charity Knitters!:star:

I dont know how much ya'll know about Warm Woolies... Its a really great project that brings wool, hand-knit clothing to orphans and homeless children and babies around the world (Including really far away places, like Russia and Kazakstan). You can check out more and read the whole story at http://www.warmwoolies.org

The only acrylic item that the accept are baby blankets. I saw that the regular Oddball baby blankets have decided to to take a rest, and I thought that there might be an opening for the great charity knitters of knittinghelp.com to do just a few (I was thinking three? or more, of course:teehee: ) baby blankets for this really fantastic cause.

I'm not sure how much intrest there will be in this idea, but I would absolutely love to help Warm Woolies out in bringing these much-needed blankets to children in need.

Please post here if you're intrested!cloud9 :heart:

Love,
Lexie:muah:

Hi There ya'll!:muah:

Welcome to the project gmmarton and kelle0302! I'm so glad that ya'll have decided to join in:hug: I'll send you both pms:happydance:

I finished our blanket "Cuddle Bug Blue" this morning and will post pictures of it later today:) (it will also be on our blog at http://warmwooliesoddballbabyblankets.blogspot.com/)

Is there anyone who would like to volunteer for starting up our first group blanket or have ideas for cute names?:) We're going to be using doubled-up yarn since it is going somewhere so cold, so if you dont have yarn to use that much of, I can send you some!:knitting:

Hope ya'll are doing well!

Love,

Also, Gmmarton (Gail) has started our first group blanket!:yay: She named it "Flower Garden" and will have it done by Monday. I'll take a section so that makes two of the five done... Is anyone intrested in taking a section?:cheering:

I'm gonig to start a blanket tomorrow as well, so if anyone wants to sign up for both and jump on the train headfirst you wont get both blankets at once:teehee:

Go team Warm Woolies!:teehee:

Hey Everyone!:heart:

Kellee- Thank you!:heart: I will put you after me on blanket blanket number two and next to last on Flower Garden (if this is okay with you:) ) I was thinking about naming the second blanket Lemon Tart and use dessert-like colors? what do you think? and I loved seeing the button on your signature:teehee:

Gmmarton- Thank you so much!:hug: I'll be looking foward to seeing and working on it. It is really great to see an idea become reality that will keep babies warm:aww:

Does anyone else want to take a position on the blankets?:) We still have a few openings:hug:

On Flower Garden, since I am the last knitter, do you want me to add the crochet border? I am more than willing to do it.

McKnitty-thank you so much!:hug: LBECK is working on peachy dreams right now... then its off to you! How exciting:teehee:

Also, we have only one space left on the crochet blanket! This means we have to start up another knitted blanket (YAY!:woot: :woohoo: :woot: ) Is there anyone that really wants to start one?:) Please post here if you are, and if no one is intrested, im sure I could start another one:teehee: :thumbsup:

Hello Everyone!:hug:

I am happy and proud to say that all of our blankets are full!cloud9 :woot: So, I'm gonig to start up another blanket (or two) to send around. Here is the problem...

I am terrible at naming things:aww: I would love your advice and/or ideas on what color schemes are best and what names would go good with them!! I was thinking "Cherry Tree" with reds, light greens and soft tans?:aww: That is the best I can come up with, so enlighten me, oh amazing charity knitters!:notworthy:

Just some suggestions:

Over the Rainbow - bright primary colors
Cotton Candy - soft primary colors
Blueberry Pie, or Sweet Dreams - shades of blue

I like Teddybear Picnic & Ladybug "Something" but I can't think of a color scheme right now. I haven't been following the other threads so I don't know if any of these names have already been used.

Ladylou
07-21-2008, 01:10 AM
Hi There McKnitty!:hug:

Ohhh I love all of those ideas!:notworthy: Since no one has signed up for "Cherry Tree" i think I'll change it to "Over the Rainbow" since we dont have a great bright one going like that (except for Lemon Zinger, but that is a little more toned down, i think). I LOVE all of the ideas!cloud9 Thank you:teehee:

Love,
Lexie:muah:

Hi There Everyone!:hug:

Okay, this is a VERY exciting day:heart: Tonight I'm going to the Warm Woolies headquarters to drop off our completed blankets!!!!:woohoo: :woot: :woohoo: I wasnt sure if I could do it this week since I havnt been feeling well, but I am feeling well enough!:heart: I promise to take pics of the volunteers for ya'll;)

Also- For all those knitters of Flower Garden (onb4050, Kayrun, and Kellee0302)... I really loved Gail's idea of stranding together two colors of Simply Soft:heart: I went ahead and bought a soft pink to do my section, along with two skiens of the cream color that she used. I'm going to include the cream yarn in the package, and if you'd like to use it (with whatever other color and yarn you choose:) ) please do! I think it would look fantastic to have the same color yarn all the way through. Please dont feel pushed to do so, but there is enough to go through the whole blanket:hug: Please let me know what you think of this idea:D

I hope you're all donig well!:cheering: Wish me luck tonight;)

Love,
Lexie:muah:

If there's room for one more on the crocheted blanket I'd be happy to take up that spot :D The biggest I've done knitting so far is a 3x10 swatch of practice knits & purls so I don't want to commit myself to too many things at once knit-wise ;)

Ladylou
07-21-2008, 06:21 PM
Hi tripletmomma!:heart:

You got the very last spot on the Crochet Blanket:teehee: Yay, another full slate!!:D Also, a few of the blankets will need crochet borders if you're ever intrested in doing that:hug:

Thank you so much!

Say hello to our newest members, nostash2big, lyntintin, and tuxedo cat!:hug: here is a fresh update from our blog:

Knit By: Ladylou (Lexie)


BLANKETS IN PROGRESS:

Flower Garden - For all of the remaining knitters on this blanket... I really fell in love with what Gail did on Flower Garden, so I did the same color of cream in Caron SS (paired with pink to compliment the green that she did) and also included enough of the cream for every knitter to do the same (pair it with another color and knit with the two together:) ). Please dont feel pushed to do this at all, but I thought it was a fun idea!;)

I will keep the blog updated and such as long as you generous people want to knit, and so far we havnt slowed down for a minute!:teehee: We would love to have you whenever you decide... please dont feel pushed into anything!:thumbsup:

And here is a fresh post from the blog!:yay:

Over the Rainbow- The ladies who are knitting on this blanket decided to make it a real-life rainbow blanket!:D I thought it was such a cute idea and since my section was already in red, how could I refuse?;) So now there are 6 knitters on this blanket instead of 5 to accomodate all of the colors:)

Squares

We are now also collecting 7x7 squares, following the same rules! If you like square knitting instead of oddball or are located (far) outside of the U.S. , please consider this option, as it helps just as much! 12 squares makes a blanket, so every square REALLY helps!:D

What color scheme is "Life's A Beach" and would it be possible to get an Oct or Nov spot?

Ladylou
08-03-2008, 11:36 PM
Hi There!:heart:

Life's a Beach is sandy colors and ocean blues:) As for an exact date, its really hard to say. Every knitter is given 3 weeks to do their portion but many get it done much sooner than that. Because of the speediness of the great knitters, its kind of hard to say:teehee: However, I could put you in the last spot and then if it isnt that time-frame, we could just move you to another blanket so that it would be later:) Would this work for you or would you like to be put on a delayed-blanket (one that we'd start in say... September? Just an idea, and it might be a bad one, so let me know:teehee:;) )

Love,
Lexie:muah:

jdee

The last spot in Life's a Beach should be fine. I'd really like to work on one of these.

Flower garden will be ready to go out tomorrow. Thanks, Ladylou for the cotton yarn. I see a hat for the grandbaby with it!! If you can pm me the address today i will be able to send it tomorrow. I have the day off tomorrow so if i dont hear back within the half hour, I will send it on Wednesday.

Hi Everyone!:heart:

jdee- I've put you on the last spot of Life's a Beach. Thank you SO much!!:heart: :woohoo:

onb4050- The next knitter on the blanket (kayrun) has been pmed!:) Once she gives me the A-okay as to giving out her address, i'll pm you with it and we should be all set;) Thanks for getting it done so quickly... I bet its beautiful!:happydance: (And feel free to post pics if you get a chance:teehee: )

You both have been marked off on the blog:hug:

Enjoy your vacation!:muah:
I just wanted to let you know that I'm a little more caught up, and if it's still available, I can take the earilier spot on the blanket. Also, I wanted to know if the 7x7 squares are also supposed to be double stranded. I have tons of woolease remnants. Thanks.

Hi There!

We're having so much fun!! Our hotel has free internet access so I'll be on a wee bit if ya'll need anything:thumbsup:

jdee-Yes, they can be double stranded worsted or pretty much just the thickness of woolease. That would be fantastic if you want to knit squares!!!:woohoo: cloud9 Please do-they're a great stash buster. I'm glad that you're more caught up:hug: Do you have a specific spot that you like?:)

Love,
Lexie:muah:
Yes, I used the yarn you sent and paired it with caron ss in light blue. And I followed the same pattern. Sorry I didnt get a pic - maybe kayrun will post one - it looks really nice and is thick and warm!!

I've just completed my part of Violet Hills. This was so fun, and I'd like to participate more. I've noticed that Snowflakes and Holly both have spaces open. If you'd like, you can put me on both, unless someone else wants one of those spaces.

Crocheted Cuteness is ready to mail out :cheering: Here's what it looks like so far (it's folded in half widthwise since I didn't want to put it on the floor that is covered with dog hair & I'm only so tall ;) )

Hello, fellow Warm Woolie knitters

I just wanted to let you know that I've started a new blanket. I'm calling it "Jellybeans," so any bright color will work. I have three spaces open if anyone wants to join me.

jdee
10-21-2008, 10:25 PM
I now have just one more space open for Jellybeans. Any takers?

Okay, I'm going to try this again. I tried to post a picture of Peachy Dreams, but it didn't show up. Then I tried 'submit a new thread' in What'cha Knitting and it worked. So here goes:

Oh goodness, it worked! LBECK knit the first part and chose a very pretty color and a beautiful stitch pattern. I knit the next part in a darker shade and moss stitch.

BTW - I used Naturally Caron.com Country (75% acrylic, 25% merino wool) for the first time and I loved it! Very soft and lovely to knit with.

Hey there crocheters! I have just received Crochet Cuteness in the mail today :) What perfect timing, since I just finished Pretty In Pink and it’s going out tomorrow to tuxedocat! Lexie - If you could let the previous crocheter know that I received it and thank her so much for me for the hot chocolate , I would really appreciate it! Thanks so much!!


I hope everyone is doing well and keep those knitting needles flying!:hug:

Hi! :waving:

We love what you are doing! Thanks so much for participating in a charity blanket project! :thumbsup:

However, WARM WOOLIE.org has asked us to suspend use of their LOGO. They are very zealous about protecting and preserving their LOGO, so we have had to comply.

They expressed their gratitude for your interest in the WARM WOOLIES project, and they realize it's just a lack of knowledge about LOGO rights and restrictions. We just cannot use their LOGO at all, whether in its official version as seen on their website, and not as an altered version either.

Please continue your good work, knitters!
We appreciate your contribution to our Forum, and your charitable works! :heart:

Hugs,

Artlady

Hi Everyone!

Artlady- I'm so sorry about the copyright violation!:( Thank you for removing all of the the inappropriate signatures. I will post another one for all you knitters soon:hug:

Okay! Guess what? Our going total over at Ravelry puts our progress at over 500 squares!!!! I could never have dreamed that there would be this explosive intrest in doing so...but because of this, we need seamers! The blankets consist of 36 7x7" squares. They should be double crocheted together and have a double crochet border. Are there any takers?cloud9 Thank you SO much to anyone who wants to help out with this end of the project!!!:heart:

Love,

No problem Ladylou! The big shot from Warm Woolies who contacted us realizes that mis-used logos aren't 'on purpose'.
Most folks don't realize that permission has to be granted.

We at Knitting Help admire what you are doing in connection with this project! Keep up the good work! :thumbsup: You are highly valued members of the knitting community and we are happy you are with us! :hug:
