I've been SO busy knitting for charity, that I haven't been able to get our lovely blankets to charity yet. (Bad Sandy!)

So, the other night, I got all of them together, and washed them with dye-free, unscented laundry detergent. I also used a bit of fabric softener made for babies.

Now, our blankets are nice and clean and pretty.

I'm making a notebook now, that will have photos of each blanket, along with the names of the knitters that made each one. I will put the sheets and our cards in clear sheet protectors in the notebook. This will be a permanent record of our donation.

That way, if the cards cannot be given with the blanket, at least they can be viewed in the notebook.
