Charity Blanket Swap

March 15, 2007

I’ve got the details worked out and ready for the real sign ups, thanks to a little nudge, nudge from fyberduck.

There’s the button. Please save it and post it up to get the word out.
  • To sign up e-mail me at vlnjodie[at]hotmail[dot]com. Include your name, address, and blog address if you have one.
  • The swap part of this will be a small commitment. Just a little something fun, such as a skein of yarn and some chocolate. This won’t be a secret swap so you’ll know where it’s going and where it is coming from.
  • Each person will attach a piece of a blanket. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a square. You can do anything you want and any size you want. The only stipulation is that it is attached before you send it to the next person.
  • The blanket will be going to the Children’s Cancer Fund of New Mexico. This is where I got my chemo treatment when I was thirteen. If we have enough people to do two blankets, then I will be open for suggestions for another place.
  • Sign ups will start today and end April 1st.

If you have any other questions feel free to e-mail them or leave them in the comments here. You can also check out the previous post for more information. I just love the idea of a blanket not only having different people, but different places contribute. Eventually there will be a separate blog so that everyone can post the blanket’s progress. This is something that is very important to me, and I hope it can mean something to you too.

    Hi Jodie, long time no comment, but I still pop by your site and see what your up to. :) your swap sounds like fun, but it might be a bit too far to send the blanket all the way to me here in Aus :( which is a bit of a bummer.
    Ok have a great weekend & happy knitting :)

    I’m in! I sent you an e-mail. Have you set any requirements about size or washability?

    Cool! Thanks for joining in.

    Abe-happy, We may be able to find someone willing to ship internationally. I think it would be awesome if the blanket skipped continents.

    Carolyn, No requirements for size, but washable would be good.
