Baptist Hospital - South's Neonatal Unit in
Montgomery, Alabama. We could use any size granny square that
our members could join to make small blankets for the babies.
Some of the blankets are used at the hospital but many are sent home
with the babies. Soft, pastel baby colors or white would be
preferred in Baby Sport yarn.
Granny squares are
needed in any
color. No wool,
- 6" squares will be used to make
baby blankets for a teenage pregnancy crisis center. Pastel
colors in regular worsted weight yarn, or baby yarn will be used.
- Squares ranging from 6" to 12" will be
lap blankets for the chronically sick or elderly. Bright
or Granny square variations will be used.
- Larger size throws will be donated to homeless
shelters. Neutral or darker colored squares will be used.
- Blankets will be donated to charities in the
Kansas City area.
These were actually some donations
received by referrals by your site. They weren't 6" squares -
the enjoyed the work that these ladies did - and took the time to make
such lovely designs. I added borders around them to
into a normal sized blanket shape - and gave these to a homeless
shelter in KC that accepted families, women and children. At
time they had a baby and another young child at their facility and were
so appreciative of the nice blankets.
can use 5 or 6" granny squares with black edging for afghans to be
donated to the needy. I can also use 4" squares in pastel colors
for infants in need at hospitals. Thank you.

some afghans on hand for that. I'm accepting any size of

blankets are lovingly made by adults and children from all
walks of life and many different countries around the wold. They
provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to Syrian refugee
children who have been made homeless by war and will send a message of
concern and hope. Your participation is important in sending this
message of hope, the thought that someone cares, that this beautiful,
handmade blanket was created especially for them. It doesn't really
matter what it looks like: even the most basic knitted blanket patterns
will yield perfect results – a smile :)
