Warm Woolies Oddball Blankets

Hello There Charity Knitters!:star:

I dont know how much ya’ll know about Warm Woolies… Its a really great project that brings wool, hand-knit clothing to orphans and homeless children and babies around the world (Including really far away places, like Russia and Kazakstan). You can check out more and read the whole story at http://www.warmwoolies.org

The only acrylic item that the accept are baby blankets. I saw that the regular Oddball baby blankets have decided to to take a rest, and I thought that there might be an opening for the great charity knitters of knittinghelp.com to do just a few (I was thinking three? or more, of course:teehee: ) baby blankets for this really fantastic cause.

I’m not sure how much intrest there will be in this idea, but I would absolutely love to help Warm Woolies out in bringing these much-needed blankets to children in need.

Please post here if you’re intrested!cloud9 :heart:

Love,
Lexie:muah:

I’ll be happy to help out!
Sounds like a great idea!

Hi There kayrun!

Thanks so much for posting:hug: I’ll pm you right now:) So far its just the two of us, but its a fantastic start!

Here is our first blanket (knit by just me:teehee: ):

Its still in progress, but if there is anyone who wants to take a look, all the info is up!

Lexie,

I’ve sent WarmWoolies lots of hats in the past…they’re a very good organization. Please add me to your list of Oddball Baby Blanket knitters.

Hi There ya’ll!:muah:

Welcome to the project gmmarton and kelle0302! I’m so glad that ya’ll have decided to join in:hug: I’ll send you both pms:happydance:

I finished our blanket “Cuddle Bug Blue” this morning and will post pictures of it later today:) (it will also be on our blog at http://warmwooliesoddballbabyblankets.blogspot.com/)

Is there anyone who would like to volunteer for starting up our first group blanket or have ideas for cute names?:slight_smile: We’re going to be using doubled-up yarn since it is going somewhere so cold, so if you dont have yarn to use that much of, I can send you some!:knitting:

Hope ya’ll are doing well!

Love,
Lexie:muah:

Hey Everyone!:heart:

Kellee- Thank you!:heart: I will put you after me on blanket blanket number two and next to last on Flower Garden (if this is okay with you:) ) I was thinking about naming the second blanket Lemon Tart and use dessert-like colors? what do you think? and I loved seeing the button on your signature:teehee:

Gmmarton- Thank you so much!:hug: I’ll be looking foward to seeing and working on it. It is really great to see an idea become reality that will keep babies warm:aww:

Does anyone else want to take a position on the blankets?:slight_smile: We still have a few openings:hug:
