I borrowed this idea from Shandeh with her permission.
I knit for babies. Newborns, premies, babies in need of love.. wether it be in the hospital, in the foster care.. wherever.
Upon reading the oddball blankets & shawls.. I thought of adding my idea for babies.
If you would like to be a part of a group who knits for babies.. read on.
I would start blankets and sent to the next one on the list. The only requirement would be to knit with love for these wee little ones. Since baby blankets would be smaller.. I would suggest knitting about 3 inches.. then passing to the next. This way I can start several blankets, and they can all be knit with love in mind. You choose the pattern, color, texture.. etc. I'll send you the blanket started, and the list of who gets it next.
I've seen babies in need of warm loving blankets. It breaks my heart. I can't do all I want.. and this way.. others can join in a very worthwhile and fun knit a long.
Since my Grandmother use to get together to do quilting bees, I think she would approve of modern tehnology to change needle types and still produce a gift of love.
