I received this PM from Shandeh, the originator of the Oddball Blankets Project, who gave me permission to share it with the group. The Thank You note is about a worsted weight blanket called [B]Dogwood[/B]. It was knit by gmmarton, missyjoon, robkat317, knitterluvspurls, bobi1218 and knittinginhudson.

Dear Gail M., Melissa K., Kathy A., Robin P., Robyn P., and Brenda L.:
[B]My two month old daughter just spent three days at the PICU at Bridgeport Hospital in Bridgeport, CT. It was a very frightening time for me and my husband. We are happy to report that she is home and doing well.
What a nice and beautiful surprise to have a home made worsted weight blank delivered to us! It really lifted my spirits to see such a beautiful piece in such a drab and sterile hospital room. I can’t wait to tell my daughter the story of how the beautiful blanket came to be hers. It currently adorns the crib in her room at home.
I just wanted to formally thank you for the wonderful work you do. It was greatly appreciated by these nervous parents!
