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, please.  
   -  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 made into lap blankets for the chronically sick or elderly.  Bright colors 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 greater Kansas City area.

These were actually some donations that I received by referrals by your site.  They weren't 6" squares - but the enjoyed the work that these ladies did - and took the time to make such lovely designs.   I added borders around them to make into a normal sized blanket shape - and gave these to a homeless shelter in KC that accepted families, women and children.  At the time they had a baby and another young child at their facility and were so appreciative of the nice blankets.

I am making comfortghans for those who have lost a family member or are going through medical problems, and I'm starting to try to get some afghans made before the holidays.  House fires seem to be quite a problem around that time so I want to have some afghans on hand for that.  I'm accepting any size of square.


Oct. 2010 ~     I am in need of 6" or 12" Granny Squares in Baby colors and also in Adult colors. No Wool or yarn with Metallic fibers please. As these are being used to make baby blankets for our local hospitals and lapghans for the local nursing homes.
Thank you,

I could always use all size granny squares.   I use them for the Devos children's hospital, and also I work with several other charities so if I had enough, I would use for the cancer patients as well.

squares 5" only please
colors: baby colors only please, no black.

I am donating the blankets made to NICUs, local nursing homes and
homeless shelters.   If you have not tried to make granny squares before, they really are pretty easy to tackle and can be made into wonderfully warm blankets for homeless shelters, nursing homes,  hospitals in general often love pretty afghans for their cancer patients or long term patients.  Babies and children need them too.  Please consider making a few squares and sending them to one or more of the people listed above.
