I think you will find some folks willing to knit the stockings. Some of us are part of the original Oddball Knitters (with Shandeh) and have had success getting new folks to sign on with our regional Oddball Groups. I, myself, co-coordinate the Oddball Baby Blanket Group for the Northeast (Spikey is the overall moderator), and over the last year I've noticed a lot more folks coming on board who are active Rav members. Since last August we've started 50 worsted weight baby blankets for Bridgeport Hospital's Pediatrics Unit. Of that number, thirty-eight have already been delivered. Spikey handles the preemie baby blankets, and has already delivered eighteen to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). She's got many more to deliver next month, so the activity level is high.

I wouldn't hesitate to put your request out there. But again, it is totally up to you!

I hope not. In my opinion there are probably going to be kids who don't celebrate any religious aspect of Christmas or are other religions so I think it's fine to have other colors. I just made one out of Plymouth Encore 7516. It came out cute.

It's slow going for me, but I have 2 completed now. I plan to keep a tally on my Ravelry projects page if you want to take a look at the pics over there!
