I'm in Moorestown, Nj-Burlington County. I guess I could drive over to Mt Holly---anyone any closer to me, though?

Hi Ellen!!
I grew up in Pequannock (near Lincoln Park border) so I wanted to say a quick hello! Unfortunately I cannot make it to Caffe Buono, I now live in North Carolina! NJ will always be home to me and I miss it dearly!

I guess I should update that we did move but it looks like I am still alone over here! We moved to Phillipsburg, just on the other side of Easton off I-78, the last exit leaving NJ. Anyone near me?

I lived in Princeton when I was much younger. LOVED it!!! I loved how old the houses were and I loved my friends and I LOVED being so close to Manhattan!

Mercer County in the House!
Hello from a beginner Garden State Knitter! (Ha! I love how that rhymed without even trying too hard.

I grew up in Woodbridge (Middlesex County) and now reside in East Windsor (Twin Rivers development, for those familiar with EW), very very close to Exit 8 and Hightstown over in Mercer County.

Anyone else call what can be literally considered Central Jersey (cause we're dab smack in the middle of the state) home?

Hi Jersey Knitters! (I'm a former North Jersey girl myself)

As many of you are aware, knitters from KH have been collaborating to make blankets, lapghans, baby blankets, & preemie blankets for some time now.

The Oddball Baby Blankets project has become so successful that Shandeh has broken it up into regions, and I am lucky enough to be helping to organize the Northeast region.

Our worsted weight blankets are going to Bridgeport Hospital, in Connecticut.

We've just arranged for the Special Delivery Unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to be the recipient of any preemie blankets that we make. For those not familiar, this is a brand new, first-of-its-kind center specifically built in to allow women carrying babies with congenital heart disease or other serious congenital malformations, as well as women whose babies undergo surgery before they are even born! They are doing amazing, life-saving work. More information is available here:http://www.chop.edu/consumer/jsp/div...c.jsp?id=85487 (sorry, don't know how to make pretty links )

The purpose in reaching out to you all is to increase our numbers for these terrific projects. You can see the list of current projects on our blog (link in my sig below) and on the NE knitters thread:http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=81357

If any of you are interested in participating, please PM me with your address and we'll get you on the list. All are welcome, and new ideas for blanket themes are greatly appreciated.

One other really cool thing is that they asked if we could help them find local knitters who could teach some of their patients to knit. They get the occasional patient who is on prolonged bedrest, either after fetal surgery or because of premature labor. They do have a nurse/midwife who knits, and I'm usually around, but they might need more folks willing to show someone how to knit from time to time. They'll provide the supplies.

Any South Jersey knitters interested in teaching basic knitting?

Hey Paiva!!

I just joined and I'm very glad to see that there is another Ocean County knitter down here! I live in Brick, right by the Point border.
