Midwest Region 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.

purlingkitten will be the leader for the West Coast / Central Region Oddball Baby Blankets.
(The Midwest Region has now merged with the West Coast)

The West Coast / Central Region includes: Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

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

I am already on the preemies and babies for the midwest, so if we put them all together into one can someone explain how the new group will work?? Will we still have the 3 seperate groups, or just one to manage?
Congrats and good wishes to Tracie for taking all of this on!

Thanks so much!
I will start the next post as a list of all of the blankets and knitters so there is only one post to manage. It will also be on this first page then.
I have a list of knitters from the Preemies and Great Plains but please send me a PM if you are unsure if I have you on the list, or are a new knitter who would like to join us- we love to add newbies!
My plan is to list some new blankets early this week so we can all get groovin' for 2009. Also, please let me know if you have any blanket ideas!

Prayers Needed
Hello! One of our knitters is in need of some prayers. Ladybug Lady has had a difficult weekend- her husband passed suddenly leaving behind her and their 19 month old son. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
If anyone would like to send a card, PM me and I can get you her address.

Hello Everyone! I hope Santa was good to all of you!

There has been a lot going on behind the scenes lately....

I delivered a HUGE box of blankets last week to HCMC in Minneapolis. They were so appreciative.

Farmgirl was SUPER busy and sent me 5 complete blankets! Thanks for all the borders! Because of this, I have 5 empty needles to start new blankets- if anyone has any suggestions, let's hear them! Or, if someone wants to name and start, I can send off the needles to you.

We have 2 new blankets starting- Green Acres and Harrold and the Purple Crayon. They are both baby blankets as we need five more knitters on each.

I plan on knitting in the next day or so- it's been snowing for 4 days, so what else do I have to do. I also have nice long weekends in January (have to use up all those vacation days) so I plan on getting a ton done. In the next week I will be posting pictures and the new blankets so keep an eye out.

So, I hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year's and remember if you are like me for NYE and will have some knitting and an adult beverage, Garter is best!
