Announcement:
We have been approached by Children’s Hospital of El Paso to provide blankets for premature babies. We are unable to meet this need on our own and we have seen how you are able to bring people together for a good cause through your podcast.

We will be holding a contest through our podcast, http://knitalittle-3stitches.blogspot.com/ starting August 12th until October 14th to hopefully gather enough donated blankets to make a significant donation. If you would be so kind as to mention this cause and our contest on your podcast and direct them to our Ravelry Group, http://www.ravelry.com/groups/3-stitches, where we will have guidelines, and free patterns linked in a thread, we and the children in the hospital would be grateful.

Sincerely

The 3 Stitches (Michelle, Kathryn, Lindsay)
