Look at these two lovely ghans. The one on the right is actually brighter colored than my camera shows.

Joy sent these a while back - and my camera battery died - and the picture didn't get up till now. I also, somehow neglected to tell Joy I got them. I'm horribly embarrassed and hope that all of you know how very much I appreciate everything you have done to help this effort along... even when my manners appear to fall by the wayside.:blush

These are lovely and thick and will be treasured by the families of the babies.

Wow what a gorgeous baby afghan. Looks like a lot of love and hard work went into that beauty. So pretty and some little baby is going to just love cuddly in that. :manyheart

Susan, like Cindy, has contributed every year of this drive. She's back again with 5 afghans . These are soft and wonderful. My camera didn't reflect the color well in these last 3 pictures, but these are all lovely.

Kathryn,

Getting back into crocheting after having some other life projects taking up my time. And hubby wants my stash used up before I buy more yarn....needless to say I have ALOT of crocheting to do! I am finishing up a pretty big round ripple in blue, white and pink. Can you use it? I can send the diameter. Also, I know I have made 12" grannies in the past and sent to you, but can you give me some various size needs? I also have a pastel yellow, green and white ripple I made that I can donate.

Please also message me your address for mailing also.

Do you need them to be bagged? A charity by us requires washing and putting directly in zip locks because the hospitals won't take things unless they are cleaned and packaged.

Thank you!
Mary - HockeyMomCrochets

Mary - I'm thrilled to take anything and everything you have! As far as size needs - EVERY size is needed. Literally. 400 babies, on average, go through the NICU in a given year. They range in age and size from micro preemie weighing ounces, to a 30 pounds 1 year old. To paraphrase "Field of Dreams" - "If you Crochet it, they will use it!"

I'll PM you with my address info.

Kathryn, I'm sorry I did not get the promised afghan into the mail but it is being washed today, along with a few little hats. It will be mailed by Monday. I'm sending a cupcake hat, along with the sweetheart ripple afghan. I think I might have a couple more little hats to send as well. Once they are washed, I'll have them ready to mail on Monday.

By November, I may have a couple more sweetheart ripples done in small sizes. I have a lot of fun making those.
