All of our knitters

We have such a wonderful group! We already have 4 blankets planned and knitters signing up for them. I'll post them as they become more full.

So here is a list of our knitters:
LBECK, Moxiemade, kayrun, doodknitwit, howdovley, kellybigeyes, HollyP, losnana, MamaDawn, misharf, and Shandeh. I also have 3 friends that are going to knit for us, they just haven't signed up yet. And 2 that are going to crochet borders. (2 of the 3 that are going to knit, might crochet borders too.)

I just think it is AWESOME that we have 13 knitters already!

And we have 6 crocheters for the borders! I love how much everyone wants to help! I know that the children and the parents will be able to feel how much love is going into these blankets!

Introducing the Southeast Oddball Baby Blankets

Our little group at Knitting is not so little anymore. It's grown so much that we are splitting into different regions. This is a blog for the blankets knit in the southeast.

Each knitter works what ever stitch pattern they want for 4 inches. Then we send it on.

The instructions for knitting on a blanket are here.

We are starting off knitting our blankets for Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters. They can use sizes other than what we have been making before we separated into regions but we are starting off making them as we have been.

We can use any help including people that would like to just crochet borders. Anyone may join in.And everyone is welcome.
