I think you still have time to mail them. It says on the website that the deadline is Feb 29. I'm thinking of making a pair myself. (Like I don't already have enough charity knitting to do. )

FYI - I sent an email to A4A and received a very nice reply. They will accept socks that are slightly bigger and will use the socks for older babies. For newborns, they want 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 inches in length.

Also, after this deadline, the newborn project will continue, so if you miss this deadline, check the website for the next one.

Mother's Day Campaign (May)
I checked the website and they now have a Mother's Day Campaign for Newborns. The due date will be in May (the actual date hasn't been announced yet). They need newborn hats, socks, and blankets.

Some of us are making 10-inch afghan squares with Lamb's Pride Bulky yarn, so we can make a couple baby blankets in time!


Here's the blog I made about our project:

Those are going to be gorgeous! I really like the colors. I would love to join you, but I've already purchased yarn and have started knitting baby socks.

This seems to be a year-round project so I'd like to join in if you do another afghan later on.

Thanks so much! I've been thinking that I'll probably continue to collect those squares and make more blankets. I'm sure there is going to be a need for some time. And it seems that most people are making the smaller items. The blankets are a perfect project for us to all work on together.


I'll send you a private message.
