Thanks for the list
The list of blankets, location and knitters is very helpful to this newbie - I'm eagerly awaiting Orange Sherbert's arrival. Will post once it is delivered.

The list helps me understand the flow and to plan for when I may be receiving a blanket.

My only other question is, since I'm doing borders on 2 blankets, what do I do with them once the border is finished? I can keep them and mail them all together to whoever handles the donations but I need to know that is the correct procedure.

Thanks again.

Kae

It is best if you mail the finished blankets to me for distribution.

At this time we have two donation possibilities: Seattle Children's Hopsital and Denver Children's Hospital.

We are open to others if you have a contact or know of a need.

Since I live in Colorado Springs the Denver Children's Hospital is perfect. I used to live in Oregon so the Seattle Children's Hospital also gets 2 thumbs up.

Tranquility is finished! I just need to know where to send it. I finished it late last week and with Christmas shopping and getting ready for the holidays I forgot to ask. Sorry.

Orange Sherbert Arrived
Just wanted to say that Orange Sherbert arrived safely in Colorado Springs and I will get started on the border. Will wait until after Christmas to mail and avoid the holiday crush.

Orange Sherbert Finished
Hi,

I've completed the border on Orange Sherbert but would like to wait until Dec 26 to mail it and avoid some of the holiday shipping madness if that is okay.



It was a lot of fun to find the yarn and create a border that tied the colors together. Thanks so much for letting me work in this lovely little blanket.

I'm still learning to size pictures correctly so decided to try again.



Above is a larger picture of the blanket (I hope!)

Now for detail of the border.
