All the baby blankets !




The light was good in my room yesterday so I just laid them all out. We had enough for a queen size blanket and more!

I hope you see your blanket in the images. They were all so soft. Two quilts were included! One quilt was made by a 14 year old girl. He first quilt and she sent it in!

These will be getting to our unit this week. Know that they will be used and appreciated.

Thanks!
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

Wow, that is a wonderful turnout of baby blankets...it always amazes me the power of the internet and the huge hearts in the knitting world. Good for you for sending out the call to arms/knitting needles!

They are all so beautiful and I can't think of a better thing for a 14 year old girl to be doing than quilting a preemie blankie. Aren't kids wonderful!!

The book arrived and I want to make everything in it. I am starting with the Fair Isle stocking cap--for me! Thanks I love it.

It was a joy to knit these little blankets, and I hope that you will request them again soon. They take such a small amount of yarn and are quick to knit.

They all look so soft and cuddly -- I hope they bring comfort to someone. It was a pleasure to be involved in this worthy endeavor. Please let me know when there is a need again.

Thanks for reminding us to keep up with charity knitting. This was such an easy thing to do and not too time consuming. As a former NICU nurse, I should have thought about this before. Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks so much for sharing. I hope they all bring joy and hope to their recipients.

We had a little stillborn 2 weeks ago, and I would like to tell you that I was so grateful when the nurse let my husband pick out baby clothes and a beautiful purple knit blanket for our daughter. Of of these items had been made by volunteers. It's a wonderful service that really does provide a measure of comfort when it seems like the world is coming to an end.

Nice though.I think internet is helping in more than one way to help the needy.

I see mine! :-) I love that a 14 year old girl made her first quilt for the project. I really enjoyed making the blanket. I've got another one made, if you could still use it...
