Thank you to everyone for your help!

Today, I received 7 circular knitting needles for our projects!


And I have received several donations to use for postage. Good thing, too! Today, I spent over 70 dollars mailing Oddball packages!

Thank you all so much!

Things are MUCH better with our Oddball projects!

It is SO COOL to see all of you reaching out to help. This forum is amazing.

Last night, I came home to find another package of needles at the house. Neat!


I want to thank the following for their donations of needles and postage funds:
suziehomemaker, losnana, misha rf, kayrun, Spikey, gmmarton, pinnut 3200

I have also been told that I will be receiving donations from the following:
Jan in CA, Gertie, Foxyie, and pauline maddocks.

So, it looks like we're gonna make it! I think we'll have enough needles to last for a while now. I'll let you all know if we need help again later.

Thank you all so much!

Anything I can do, Shandeh? I can poke around the local stores here for more needles?

We're in good shape right now, but I'll let you know when we're in need again, my friend. Thanks for offering!

I have been so blessed with donations of needles and postage funds from everyone! Thank you all so much!


Today, I received 5 more pairs of needles, a package of point protectors, and more postage money. What wonderful gifts for our charity projects!

Thank you Foxyie and Gertie!


And a few days ago, I received packages from MaryB and Pauline Maddocks. (Pauline even included an extra special gift of yarn for me!)

Here's the total donations I've received from all of you wonderful KHers:

25 sets of circular knitting needles
and almost 200 dollars for postage!

Yay! So far, I have used 3 of the needles for starting new Oddball Baby Blankets and Oddball Shawls. And I've used 84 dollars for Oddball postage costs. (that amount includes postage for the past two weeks)

Thank you all SO MUCH for your help!

We are starting a new project now, making blankets for preemie babies. So, now we need size US 6 (4 mm) circular needles. They need to be at least 21 inches (53 cm) long. I have a few to get by for now, but I have a feeling we'll be needing more.

I'm going to check on eBay now, to see what I can find.

Sandy, I have 3 skeins of RH Classic in pink that I'll be happy to donate to your projects or anyone who needs them. They were from my sweetie's mother who doesn't know pink is one of my least favorite colors....
