Shandeh Hand-Delivered Our Oddball Preemie Blankets!
Today was a WONDERFUL day for our Oddball Blanket project.

This morning, I took 16 of our original Oddball Preemie Blankets to Carolinas Medical Center, Union in Monroe, North Carolina. They were so appreciative of our blankets!

They just went on and on about how pretty the blankets were, and spoke about the beautiful stitches.

One of the nurses said, "I want to learn to knit!"
So, I directed her to the Knitting Help website.

Another of the nurses kept saying, "Wow! I just keep getting goosebumps! This is such a neat thing!"

They were all very gracious, and were willing to pose with me, holding some of our blankets. What a great experience!


Thank you all for your hard work on the Oddball Preemie Baby Blanket project. You're an AMAZING group of knitters!
