Southeast US Oddball Baby Blankets
Hello friendly charity knitters and crocheters!

We work together to make Oddball Baby Blankets for charity. Our blankets will be made according to the requests of our local hospital(s), so keep watching this thread to see our guidelines.

HollyP will be the leader for the Southeast Region Oddball Baby Blankets.

The Southeast Region includes: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, & West Virginia

If you would like to volunteer to help make our blankets, please send MAmaDawn a private message, and she'll help you get started!

Our project will begin in August, so let's start our plans!

I am very excited to be working with everyone on these blankets.

I'm working on the blog. And getting everything set up.

HollyP is helping me (thank you! )

I'll post the link to the blog as soon as it's ready.

Hey MAmaDawn... I just wanted to make sure that you add me to the list. Do I need to send you my address in a PM? I'm sure you know that I have been working on blankets already with Shandeh. So I'm familiar with how everything works. I can't wait to get started next month. I look forward to working with you.

Yup you are on the list. The only parts that may change is making the blanket meet the needs of the hospital. HollyP is checking on that part.

As soon and she is able to find out what the needs are for the hospital we choose then we can start planning blankets.

Hey everybody! I called the hospital today and the volunteer coordinator is on vacation. She'll be back in the next couple of days. Hopefully I'll be able to get an answer then.
The hospital I am hoping to be able to donate to is Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters in Norfolk, VA. Here is a link to the hospital - CHKD . As I already told MamaDawn, CHKD has a really special place in my heart. My youngest brother spent a lot of his youth there due to major congential heart defects. Our family credits this hospital with saving his life multiple times. Thankfully he is now a healthy happy adult.
I will let you all know as soon as I know anything!!

Welcome lizardknits! Just pm me your address and you will be all set up! I have you down after kellybigeyes on Butterfly Kisses.

All of our blankets are filled! Why don't we plan some more... we won't have to cast on for these right now, but just plan who's knitting on what and all...

So here are a few ideas that everyone had... Little Boy Blue, Diagonal Rainbow, Lemon Drops and Gum drops, Chocolate Mint, Blue Ridge Mountains, Skittles, and Puddin'. I can list more if you all want... and we don't have to set all these up now...

I had an idea for a blanket, All That Glitters. It could maybe have some stars and diamonds on it, something else that looks like it glitters. Maybe do it in some like pinks and purples and some bright pinks and purples. I don't know, it just sounded good in my head is all.

That sounds cute! I'll add it, we can use it in the next set or later.
