Another New Preemie Blanket

This past week, I received another beautiful preemie blanket for the hospital. I just need to knit the last section and add a crochet border. It's called the "Creamy" Preemie Blanket. Lovely.

The kind knitters in the Southwest Oddball Baby Blanket group did all the knitting so far.

Woo Hoo! Our Blankets Have Been DELIVERED!

This morning, I got all our little blankets together, and hand-delivered them to the Carolinas Medical Center, Union in Monroe, North Carolina.

The nurses in the NICU area were SO excited about getting the blankets!

They passed the blankets around, saying "Oh! Look at this one!", or "Isn't that BEAUTIFUL?!"

One of the nurses looked at me, and said, "I want to learn to KNIT!" :)

I told them the story of how our blankets were made, and one nurse was saying, "I keep getting goosebumps! It's such a neat story!"

I asked if they would mind posing with me to get a photo of the blankets being presented, and they were all for it.

The neatest part was being able to see the little babies in the room behind us. They were all sleeping peacefully. Amazing, with all the "Ooohs" and "Aaaahs" by the nurses over the blankets. (tee-hee)

Our project is now complete, and there are a lot of little babies that will enjoy our work. Thank you all!
