Our First Delivery of NE Worsted Weight Baby Blankets!!
We did it! We got six worsted weight baby blankets completed and delivered this afternoon to Ms. Anita P. Janson-Bower, Donor Relations Specialist, at Bridgeport Hospital in Bridgeport, CT. My original contact, the Child Relations Therapist, was up in Pediatrics "on call" when I arrived, so she sent her colleague downstairs to receive our blankets.

Well, I will tell you, this woman nearly knocked me over! I wish all of you could have been there to experience her Bliss! She was ecstatic, to say the least! She couldn't get over the beautiful blankets, their unique patterns, and complimentary colors. She kept saying, "I hope you'll be coming back again!" I told her I would try to get more blankets over there before December 24th. The challenge is on...

Many thanks to those who helped out with these blankets in some capacity. A big thanks to Spikey for her brilliant organizing power.

We have much to be grateful for, especially when we can have experiences like I just had this afternoon.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

We still have quite a number of blankets being finished up. I will be starting three more Northeast worsted weight oddball baby blankets right after December 25th when I will be on break in sunny, warm(?) Florida.
The blankets will be:

Candy Cane, done in red and white,
Crayons, done in brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and black (3 inches per knitter), and
Butterfly Kisses, done in purple, pink, green, yellow, orange and blue.

If you are interested, we will add you to the spreadsheet. Thanks, everyone!

Update on Gorgeous Grapes and Boo! I Love You
I finished knitting on Boo! I Love You and am halfway finished with the border. Gorgeous Grapes needs another inch and a border. After that, I will wash, dry, and photograph. I just might drop these two off at Bridgeport Hospital Sunday afternoon.

They are really colorful blankets. Thanks, everyone, for your help!

What a great delivery story! I am so grateful to be a part of this project and a part of this giving group.

I'm ready for Think Pink, Lisa - I pm'd you my address.

I got Gumdrops from bobi on ravelry - it is so cheerful and pretty! I can't wait to add a section.

I'd love a spot on Butterfly Kisses and/or Candy Cane - anything after Christmas!

And with the needle left from Heathers, I'd love to start another - if I can wait until after the holidays. I'm thinking something with a New Years theme - maybe brights, blues, and whites? Any thoughts?

Hope everyone had a safe, tasty, and wonderful holiday, too
