Remember a while back when I blogged about how Project Linus sent out a request for blankets in Colts colors?
Well Janet and I got together after a very (VERY) busy garage sale at my house and turned these...
Our knitting group rocks! I was hoping we might have enough blocks for 2 blankets, but we ended up with enough for 3. Considering what a very short time we had to throw these together, I think we dod pretty good. They were nice and snuggly, too. There is a row of blocks that you can't see over the top of the banister.
A couple days after we turned them in we found out why they were doing it.
It turns out Peyton Manning donated upwards of $50 million to the St. Vincent's Children's Hospital. They re-named it after him and had a big event. You can see a kid with Peyton who has a Linus blanket HERE (It's not one of ours, though).
