Today was a WONDERFUL day for our Oddball Blanket project.

This morning, I took 16 of our original Oddball Preemie Blankets to Carolinas Medical Center, Union in Monroe, North Carolina. They were so appreciative of our blankets!

They just went on and on about how pretty the blankets were, and spoke about the beautiful stitches.

One of the nurses said, "I want to learn to knit!" :thumbsup:
So, I directed her to the Knitting Help website. :wink:

Another of the nurses kept saying, "Wow! I just keep getting goosebumps! This is such a neat thing!" :heart: :heart:

They were all very gracious, and were willing to pose with me, holding some of our blankets. What a great experience!

I'm glad you like it! It's our "Spring Fling" blanket.

Great looking blankets. All of your knitters should be so proud.

Isn't it a wonderful feeling going to the hospital and delivering love wrapped in yarn? I truly enjoyed it when I did it with the Canadian Oddball Blankets. Last week I even got to hand deliver one to an actual little boy baby. It was rewarding to say the least! However, it would not have been possible without the help of each and everyone of the knitters. You ladies are amazing!!!

Keep up the good work knitters!!!

Yesterday, I delivered another 7 blankets to the hospital. They have ramped up the security a bit, so I was only able to leave them at the front desk. So no photos.

But, the lady at the desk LOVED the blankets, and said "Thank you!" :hug:
