Hi There!

It is of great importance to me that the blankets that we spend so much love and time on go to a baby who would otherwise not have a blanket to keep them warm. I dont want to give the blankets to a hospital or anywhere else where the baby would be provided for whether or not they get our blankets. I want our blankets to keep a baby warm who would otherwise be cold. Warm Woolies does have a branch that sends blankets to a reservation in N. Dakota, U.S. A child is a child no matter where he or she is

Love,
Lexie

Perhaps this would a good compromise. You would get to donate to a charity that you have a heart for, and the blankets we donate there would remain in the U.S.

Oddball knitting
Nathalie,
I am excited to work on oddball baby blankets. Thank you for your answer. I am not alergic to anything so put me where I am needed.

If it is okay with you my sister will just piggyback to me. She doesn't have a personal computer so it would just be easier for her to be connected with me. If you prefer her to be signed up in KnittingHelp I could do that from my computer. It is just whatever would work best for you. She is excited also to join in the fun.

Thanks again for the message. Bye for now - Kay

I love the idea of sending to an Indian reservation in N Dakota. Thank you for the suggestion Kay

Piggy-backing is fine, as long as I know when she has it. If you could PM me her mailing information, that would be helpful...just so I can keep up with the location of each blanket's temporary "home."

Glad you both are joining us!

Hey Auburn. Just wondering if you still needed a "finisher". I'm available so just let me know. LOL all that I ask is you don't flood me with a bunch of blankets all at once.

You betcha! Didn't I tell you already?? You're the ONLY finisher I have so far.

We'll try to be gentle.
