Hi Everyone! I'm almost done with my latest pink blanket and then I'll *finally* head over to the hospital with what I've collected. I hope that you all are staying warm. Things have been a little brisk around here!
Knitandpurl, thank you for your offer to post a pattern. I'd love to see what you are knitting!

Kimmie...I have not read all of the posts. I still have a hard time reading about things like this at this time of the year. However, I would love to keep this going and join in the kal.

On this note... Please DO NOT respond in saying I'm sorry. I had one that I lost when I was 22 yrs old he turned 19 on January 11th this year. And I still have the knitted hat that I received from the hospital.

I do have a thought for you. If you start getting a lot again why not donate to other hospitals from where the people here are at. This is just a thought.

silegoose, thanks for offering to help! One of the sad things about the hospital I donate to is that they seem to always be needing things and I can't keep up by myself, so that's why every now and then I throw out a plea for help. There have been many people over the last couple of years who have started knitting for hospitals in their own area which is fabulous!!
Since you specifically requested that nobody say that they are sorry about your son, I won't, but I will say that if you do read through the old posts (which would take forever!!!) you will find that there are many people who have knit for this project who have lost babies or are close to someone who lost a child. For me, it is theraputic and I suspect that is true for many in a variety of ways.
