1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Big Bad Baby Blanket Donations - check this out on: May 03, 2004 06:18:10 PM
Hi..I have been working on the BBBB for a couple of weeks and all along just haven't known who to give it to..I have a bunch of frineds who are pregnant and a baby of my own, but just couldn't decide who was to be it's future owner. Anyhow, was browsing over some links referenced in "the joy of knitting" (a great read by the way) and found PROJECT LINUS. They collect donated blankets of basically any size and give them to 0-18 year olds in need. You should read some of the letters posted..there is one from a premmie ward nurse who states she has seen tiny babies grow calm and their pulses increase when they have a special blanket; how these blankets brigten up the sterile wards and unfortunatly how sometimes it becomes the only thing parents take home with them after the loss of a sick baby. I now know where my blanket is meant to go. The link is www.projectlinus.org  Anyone knitting the BBBB or looking for a nice project for the future should check this out..
