Whoops! Sorry it took me so long to check in here. Cacunn, this thread has been going on for a long time. It started as a project I was doing for a class I was taking and we collected amazing numbers of items. I'd have to go find my project binder to see what the grand total was, but it was phenomenal. Then, last year, the hospital needed little premie burial buntings and again, people sent in quite a few of them. This year, the hospital wants full-size baby blankets, because sadly, they have had a lot of full-term babies die or be stillborn. Since these are way more time consuming to knit compared to tiny little hats, burial buntings and blankets, I am understandably getting fewer. I took 5 into the hospital fairly recently and I have, I think 3 more ready to go. I meant to take them this past week, but things suddenly got busy, so I'll either take them this week or the next. I will try to knit a couple more over the winter and then go back to the smaller items because usually that is what they need.
So, in answer to your very good question - I don't know, but I wish I did! All I know is that people have been so kind and generous with their time and support and they have done so for so many reasons.
