Update
Acryllic is the best yarn. They survive the hot soapy waters that must be used to keep these clean. The nursing staff is awesome about keeping the right blanket with the right child.

Please send me your name and addy through a pm here or to my email. I'm sitting this Saturday to start mailing the blanket.

I think bright colors, would be best.. the children seem to like bright primary, and secondary colors. They pick those first.

Thank you all for joing this great cause. The hospital stated they are not sure I can take pictures.. usually I just drop them off.. But they will try, if possible to share how the children use them. They are so appreciative of anything.

Thanks again!

Should the yarn be worsted weight, or something lighter?

Sorry Murphy attacked
Sorry for the delay in posting, Murphy has been attacking me physically.

THe yarn should be a worsted weight. That is light enough yet sturdy enough to last. I'm going to try and get the list together tonight and mail it out tomorrow or Saturday. I'll post the list, and when the blanket went out.

I'm fighting a bad tooth ache, and can't see the dentist till tomorrow.. so.. I'm on pain pills... lol You'd be amazed at what I've done.

I'll update with who gets it when.. and then when you're ready for it to be sent.. let me know & I'll email you the addy to send it to.

Thanks all of you for joining, the hospital is excited that so many knitters from all over are doing this for their kids.

Who is Murphy, and why is he attacking you?
Tell him to leave our KH friend ALONE!

I hope your tooth gets better soon. I just had a MAJOR tooth infection a few weeks ago, so I know exactly what kind of pain you're dealing with. Good luck!

If it's like our Oddball Blankets, we are each responsible for our own postage.
