Quick update
Hi again. No word yet! I'm hoping it is just because her in-box is overflowing from being on vacation. I'm going to search the website and see if maybe I can get her email. My friend who is a nurse told me that a lot of the staff at her hospital are better about returning emails than phone calls. If I don't get a hold of her tomorrow I will go to the hospital on Monday and try to talk to her in person.

Thank you Holly for taking care of this.

I wanted to know what everyone thought of this idea. I was thinking down the road we can ad more hospitals that we knit for. Moxiemade I know you said you have several you can check out too. Do you all like this idea?

And is the a section y'all prefer to knit on? Or not to knit on? And I know that Lisa and Holly both of you have crocheted borders is there anyone else that would like the help with that? It doesn't have to be anything fancy, just a single crochet or double crochet even makes it just look so together.

And I can't wait... I have one idea for a blanket. Autumn leaves.... I won't start on it till August so I think it will be done in the fall.

Wahoooo!!!!
I just got of the phone with the coordinator! They are very excited about receiving our blankets. I had given her the blog in a voice mail. When I talked to her she had just finished looking at the blog. She told me she was in awe of our talent and willingness to give.

They have a need for everything! She said anything from preemie isolette covers - twin beds.
They ask for soft washable like we've been doing. She really stressed soft! She also asked us to stay away from all yellow or all green blankets. Apparently jaundice and other sick babies look much sicker under a yellow or green blanket than other colors. We can include a card, if we want, but we have to refrain from get well and religious messages. So it's really not all that different from what we were doing.
I'm really excited, it seems more real now. I keep thinking of themes during the most random times. I'm going to have to keep a little notebook or something with me.
I'd be happy to do a boarder. I can also do the last section. I'd also be happy to start some. So really just let me knit and I am happy!

It really does seem real now doesn't it? So what are everyone's ideas for new themes. I'm thinking to start lets stick with the kind we have been making. And we can branch out later. Does that sound good to everyone?

Thank you Holly... I'm glad she's excited to get the blankets

Way to go ladies! You rock!!

I'll be busy for a while, finishing up my current stack of preemie blankets and wrapping up the last of the regular baby blankets.

So, you can probably count on having me as a knitter and basic crocheter in September or October.

It's so cool to watch our region take shape!

This is so awesome everyone! How excited to still be a part of all this, and I love the idea that the blankets will now be completed in full closer to home.

I may not be able to jump right in when we start up again, but I certainly will keep up with the forum and blog to see how they are all coming along.

August September and October will be real busy for me, but hopefully during the end of the year, I can start to pitch in again. I now want to learn to crochet the borders so that I can help with ALL aspects of these blankets!! Ugh, like I need another addiction. haha.

Go Southeast!!
