Midwest Great Lakes Oddball Baby Blankets
Hello friendly charity knitters and crocheters!

We work together to make Oddball Baby Blankets for charity. Our blankets will be made according to the requests of local hospital(s), so keep watching this thread to see our guidelines.

The Midwest Great Lakes Baby Blankets are led by traceleighj

The Great Lakes region includes Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, and Ohio.

If you would like to volunteer to help make baby blankets, please send a private message to traceleighj, and she will help you get started!

Our project will begin in August, so let's start our plans!

We have a Blog!
Yippe! I finally get a night off and have accomplished a ton of work for our group! Emails sent, check. Ravelry updated, check.

I have even hit up my knitting group- from Ravelry into joining up- they all see me working on the blankets every month and love them. It won't really be a hard sell.

Last on the list, Blog, CHECK! More to come as we get going, but it's a start!

Are we going to start back up right on August 1st? We might need to get some ideas together!
Is there only a few of us? No one is really active on this thread...

Yes, this thread has been kind of quiet. I am oging to get some needles and start a blanket. Right now there aren't too many of us- so put on some pressure! I will post our frst blanket tomorrow and get that going! Wicked- would you like to be #2? I am at work right now and my lists are at home, but I will definitely get one going and out the door on Monday!
