Sent to Bev Qualheim and permission to use given by Mary Ann West who says:  "This was given to me (~1980) by the N.I.C.U. of Sinai Hospital in the Detroit area, MI  for use in making infant wear.  Think of this blanket as a "giant  dishcloth" "  Please make one for a needy baby at a  Children's Hospital near you.  A great way to celebrate  NEW LIFE!
