Warm Woolies Oddball Blankets
Hello There Charity Knitters!

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 ) 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!

Love,
Lexie

Welcome!
Hi There ya'll!

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

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!

Hope ya'll are doing well!

Love,
Lexie
