I started knitting March of 2012 and I am hooked!!!

Knitting is my sweet piece of sanity. Most of my knitting is done for premature babies.

I am still learning the craft and my knits tend to look funny, but it is all a part of the journey right?

Of course we will appreciate you! However, I don't know anything about online marketing. Good Luck on that. Jerri

That's awesome, Raquel!

What charity are you knitting for? Maybe I could knit them blankets. I've not done much knitting myself either even though I started a lot longer ago than you (2005). I'd love to be able to be involved in something that will give my knits a "home." That's been the reason for why I've not knitted much in the past six years and then some. I don't have anywhere for the projects to go.

Let me know if there's any way we can get something started, or even if you just want to be Knitting Daily friends:)

I would like to know also. I am actually a quitler and know where to send quilts. I have a stash of knitted things that need a home.

Let me know, Jerri

Hello there!!!

I knit for Precious Preemie Project. (http://www.PreciousPreemieProject.com)

It is a little group I started May 2012 to help premature babies and their families. We are a small team of knitters, quilters, and crochetters who make beautiful things for babies.

We send donations to hospitals each month. We can use all the help we can get. This past week, we mailed 280 hats to hospitals throughout the U.S. But if we had help, we can help many more. 

These hats mean a lot to the families who receive them. This is one of the thank you notes that was sent to us.

Jerri,

This is great! We would love to have your help. 

Some hospitals ask for blankets but we don't have the manpower (yet) to make them.

Please email me directly: PreciousPreemieProject@MamasHealth.com

or you can send donations to:

Precious Preeme Project
Suite 2170, 281 East Colorado Blvd. 
Pasadena, CA 91101 

Exciting!!!

Great, I now have your address and will send them along eventually, when I have more.

I have a knitting machine and lots of yarn so I can knit them up fast. Sincerely, Jerri

I'm a newbie knitter and I am so excited that I have finally figured out how to knit. It has always fascinated me to see people make things with these 2 needles. I was determined to figure it out after I got a beginners knitting book from my sister in law for Christmas. I love the fair isle knitting patterns and colorwork. Good luck on your knitting projects!

Hi Delaine33, How are you doing learning to knit? There are so many sites to teach you on the internet that I'm sure you are doing great. I

have been very busy and have neglected this site. Going to do better this year. Jerri
