Knitting on Oddball Baby Blankets is a lot of fun, but knitting only one section and sending the blanket to the next knitter makes it difficult to visualize the finished item. The satisfaction of helping is limited to that one section, especially if you are one of the beginning knitters.
The West Coast Oddball Knitters are a productive group with seventeen blankets completely finished and at least fourteen more in various stages of completion. Recently, the group coordinator prepared the blankets for delivery.
She laundered and sorted the blankets, matching each with the cards that accompany the blankets. Each knitter signs the card before mailing the blanket to the next knitter, and the card and blanket are given to the baby's parents.
Blankets were sorted as to size: full-sized in one pile and
preemie-sized in another. The blankets will be donated to a hospital in our western region.
It warms my heart to know that I have helped with this project.
