Preemie Blanket Journals
The executive director of Special Delivery Unit at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (the recipient of our preemie blankets) LOVES the idea of each preemie blanket arriving with a little journal.

I've found 3x5" spiral bound notepads at my local CVS, that have brightly colored plastic covers and only cost 99 cents. The best part is that they are super lightweight, so they shouldn't increase our mailing costs

As before, when you are writing your section, please remember that not all of these families will be taking home a healthy baby, or (sadly) a baby at all. Also, please do not make any religious references.

They are very interested to hear about the yarn you chose, the stitch pattern you chose, where you are from, why you like to knit on these types of projects, etc.

I've started one for Special Delivery and will get one to gmmarton and threesmom to add their sections, for Rainbow Sherbet.

Thanks!

I got a box 'o blankets in the mail today! As pretty as they look in pictures, they look even better in real life. I really like the pink in rainbow sherbert, gmmarton - so pretty and soft. And thank you SO MUCH for the beautiful yarn - if I didn't suddenly have so much knitting to do, I'd be all about finding a pattern for it

Woo-hoo! Let the knitting begin!

Spikey, you can find some journals very cheap at dollar stores, Walmart, Michaels, and AC Moore. Sometimes at Walmart, you can get a pack of 3 journals for 99 cents!

The Blizzard Has Arrived
Blizzard was waiting for me in my mailbox when I arrived home today.

Thanks, kellee, for the great yarn. That is the exact shade I need to make washcloths for my Aunt and Uncle. I was just asking my cousin what color the master bath in their new house is, and you got it spot on!

Go Preemies!
Hi there,

Was looking at our lists, and the great progress we are making

It looks like we should start at least one more preemie blanket, as we only have one spot left on one blanket!

What do you all think? Cotton Candy, Sweet Dreams, Just Ducky, Neon Fun, Fluffy Clouds, Powder Puff, Pink Power, Soft Hugs, Lemon Drops, Bubblegum, Tutti Fruitti, and Forest Greens are all names that the main group has used in the past (thanks, gmmarton, for compiling the list )

Who'd like to get one started? It should be on size 6 needles. I can send some out if people need, or you can use your own and send it to me on waste yarn.
