That sounds great! would you like to start our first blanket? I love that idea. Let me know the specifics.

The idea w/ flowers sound so pretty. I hadn't thought of that... I'm so glad you joined our group.

Any ideas for the next one? Anyone wanting to start a special blanket?

i'll be able to start 3 of them since i'm the last knitter on 3 current preemie blankets and will have the needles. snowbear, if your hospital doesn't have a need for them, i'm sure the one here would have a use for the preemie ones.
i'll think about colors/themes for some new ones.

I was thinking perhaps we could do some round robin. We want to keep the group simple, making blankets. Why don't we start with regular baby blankets for awahile, then switch to preemie, then perhaps bigger blankets for retirment homes, or such.

That way we can do different blankets, but have everyone doing the same thing at the same time. I think it would go a bit faster that way, and everyone would be on the same page.

Let me know your thoughts..

Hello Midwest Region!

Snowbear has decided to step down as leader for the region, so we are now in the process of choosing a new leader. I am talking to a few good people right now, and will post an update soon.

Stay tuned!

OK, that Midwest KAL button did it. (it is so sweet) I would like to try knitting for this KAL. Just keep in mind I am a new knitter and new to Charity Knitting.
Waiting for more information.

Little blankets
Sandy,
I haven't heard anything out here in the Midwest since it was decided to split up the group of knitters.

Will there be a leader to keep the little blankets going?
It's been several weeks since any little blanket has come this way.

Charity Knitting is so much fun! And it is a great opportunity to try out new stitch patterns and what not!
