My friend Margaret came over today to drop off some great fleece blankets.  She doubled them up when she sewed them, to make them extra warm.  Can you see Knittageddon in the background?  I am sure that there are well over 500 knitted and crochetted items in my dining room/living room/hallway right now.

This sweater and hats, as well as the mittens and hats below are from Claudette of Ottawa.  I got 4 garbage bags from Claudette (more than 20 blankets alone).  Kudos, Claudette!

Here is a sample of Claudette's blankets

And yet more.  I told you she is prolific.

And yet another bag of Claudette's goodies that I opened up (along with the socks below).

The above 3 crochetted blankets are so cheerful you wouldn't believe it.  The camera doesn't do them justice.  They come from Anita Edmonds of Asheville, NC.

Suzanne Atkinson (aka Suzanneknitter) is one of our charter members.  She is incredible because not only does she do her own knitting, she coordinates the knitting of others.  I love the square pattern on this blanket.  Its so pretty. 

These are the same pattern but a bevy of colours (also ms Suzanne's work).

Here is something that Annemarie of New York knit as squares then assembled (WAYYYY neater than my assembly, I might add).

And finallly this from V Thomas of Twinsburg Ohio -3 blankets.  V, I do have your other box as well but I have not opened it yet (I need to get some boxes off to Moosonee before I open up even one more thing).  Thanks everyone!!
