Debbie, that really sounds like a wonderful thing to do. There are so many people out there in the world who can use some knitted up love!
Over the past two days I knit for about 13 hours in the car. I realized after about half that time that I had chosen the wrong pattern...because it's taking me forever. I'm only about a third of the way through it. I'll keep plugging along though! I'm eager to finish this one so that I can start a different pattern that moves faster!

What pattern are you using right now Kimmie? I am knitting up a diagonal knit blanket that is moving along faster then I expected.

Wow!! I cannot get over how fast you are all knitting and how cute the pic of your blanket is momwolf! I am knitting this pattern, but in a soft baby blue yarn. It really wasn't the best choice, in hindsight. I do have another baby blanket in a peachy yarn that I started awhile ago and just need to finish, so maybe I'll switch to finishing that for awhile, because the other is sooooo slow. Plus, it's straight stockinette for most of it and I'm easily bored!
I will pm my address to all who asked.

Hmmm... I don't think I currently have the yarn or patience for a full-size baby blanket, but reading this thread I now realize that I can probably get some premie caps or blankets from my "miniball stash" which is the remnants of skeins after their projects are complete. I have mostly natural fibers that would felt if washed, but wondering if this would be a problem in the case of babies that didn't make it? If its used for burial it would never be washed, if kept as a keepsake it wouldn't be used again and could be cared for as any other feltable item. Thoughts?

If my alpaca/merino/angora ministash will be OK I'll see if my local hospital has a need and if they don't I'll see if anyone else knows of an outlet.

Years ago a very close friend of my family had a daughter who was developing wrong - I won't go into detail but there was no way she would survive. When she was born they let her mom hold her, then gave her to her sister. Her name was Kelly (big sister was a Barbie-doll lover ). The parents had been trying for a long time to have another child and to lose Kelly was so tragic even if they hadn't been waiting for so long. I'm happy to say that years after, they finally succeeded and their younger daughter is now a very healthy energetic 9-year-old.

Thanks Kimmie Looked at your pattern and it does look boring.
Can't wait to see what kind of blankets you get
