Was just getting online to email you!  Our mail goes to a central lockbox on the block and we didn't go down yesterday.  Just got back from the mailbox and there it was!  I'll be getting pics of your ghans and Jessica's up here in the thread this weekend.

I love seeing all the blankets. I love the FB page too.
Kathryn got me going on the fleece edging and I have been loving it. I bought fleece on sale and have enough for about 28 blankets. I'm having fun edging them all.

Package from Chrissy arrived today!  14 blankets and 18 hats in 2 clown car boxes!  The colors on the blankets are so very cheerful - my camera doesn't really convey the colors.  So pretty - and all the hats!  Wonderful wonderful wonderful!

I have already started filling up my tote again more bright colors, more fleece, more c2c going to finally get to earflap character hats but not until i finish my grand daughter's sweater and the scarves my mom needs for Easter. So probably May before i fill another box or 2. The colors are mostly the REd Heart Blacklight and Dayglow I love how bright they are and how the colors pool when crocheted.

30 hats from my mom!  I took pictures of these in stages as she made them, so several pictures to share.  Many monster hats - many animals, some footballs and lots of regular hats.

I had a question about yarn types on baby blanket what types do you suggest..... I usually only have around the house Red Heart Brand type is this too thick or scratchy for this project for you?

Red Heart is a great durable yarn to use.  If you think it's coming out too stiff, I've found using white vinegar in the rinse cycle when you wash it will soften it up alot.

Hi,

Are you still excepting Afghans for NICU babies?  If so, can you please send me the address to sent to?  I would like to send blanket and hats.  Thanks!

Sandie- I accept afghans all year long.  I deliver at the end of November.  Anything received by Thanksgiving will go this year.  Anything received after thanksgiving, will go in 2015.  As long as Charisma is washable - it will be fine!

MaryJO- Hope you got my email when I got the package.  Had computer troubles for a while at home and was unable to get pictures loaded.  (computer being fixed- Comcast coming out etc).  Pics up soon.
