Greetings to all Northeast Knitters & Crocheters!

Sandy has set the bar extremely high but, with help from gmmarton (who has graciously offered to assist with blanket delivery) we can go a long way toward keeping loads of Northeast babies warm!

Plans are still in the early stages, but we'll likely start with worsted weight blankets, before branching out into preemie (DK/sportweight) blankets, if that's ok with everyone.

I'll post info here as decisions are made. All input is welcome! We'll need knitters for the blankets, of course, and volunteers who might be willing to crochet borders. Please PM me if you are interested.

Once we are well up and rolling, I'll try to put together a website where we can keep track of the blankets. Any advice from computer-savvy KHers will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

ETA-thanks to the inspiration from The.Knitter, I've created a blog to track our blankets http://northeastoddball.blogspot.com/
