She should contact her local hospital.... they sometimes take donations. I donate to St. Mary's in Amsterdam (if they can't use the item they send it to one of their sister hospitals) where my minions were born.

Hi Brenda,

I second the suggestion of contacting her local hospitals or shelters, they can almost always use any knitted item.

How sweet of you to send her materials!

Take care,
Spikey

wow, no posts in a long time....

anywho.....

What's going on with the current blankets? are they still in circulation? are anymore going to be started up?

I was organizing my stash and found a bunch of baby yarn... was thinking of making a preemie blanket or two and sending it along. Who do I send it to?

We're very talkative over on the Ravelry thread but not so much here. There's a spot open on a new worsted weight blanket called "Kermit's Lily Pad" with shades of green as the color theme. Would you like a spot on that one?

Time for me to step down
Friends,


It has been two years since the Northeast Oddball Knitters Group was founded, and it is time for me to step down from the organizing. Since our inception, we have completed 66 worsted weight blankets and 54 DK weight blankets - and there is no end in sight!


The fantastic MotherHenKnits and hamham have agreed to also take over the DK blanket side of our group , for as long as we all want to continue making the wonderful little treasures.
For the time being, I am happy to continue to collect the finished DK weight blankets and keep bringing them to the CHOP Special Delivery Unit, but if someone else wants to bring them elsewhere that would be terrific, too.


I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your creativity, dedication, hard work, dollars spent on supplies and postage, and countless hours spent knitting and crocheting these little oddball tokens of love. They mean so very much to all of the recipients.



For now, I will continue to work on those blankets that are still in circulation, and will help out with knitting when I can. And Iíll continue to hound those who are holding onto our blankets, until they all come home!


Thank you for allowing me to have this wonderful opportunity.

Spikey - Thanks so much for your efforts over the years! We all really appreciate all of your hard work.




Moving forward, hamham and I have come up with a plan to keep our group running smoothly:
  1. Hamham will update the completed blanket blog as needed and I’ll do monthly updates on the DK & WW blankets in progress blogs.
  2. Completed WW blankets will still go to hamham for delivery to Montefiore. Completed DK blankets will still go to spikey for delivery in Philly.
  3. New blankets will be started by whoever has the needles and we just ask that you print out the instruction sheet and add a card to sign. If you don’t have time to start a new blanket you can mail the needles to myself or hamham (just check with us first to make sure we’re able to).
I purchased 4 sets of needles yesterday to start new DK blankets but I’m waiting for the open spots to be filled on existing blankets before I put these in circulation. I’m so excited that we’re able to keep our group going and I look forward to all of the beautiful blankets we’ll create in the future!
