My church is also knitting prayer shawls for the people in Newtown, CT. The idea is to make a shawl for each person in Newtown, I think. Howard Co Hospital is a good charity but Newtown might appeal to some. I will get the address of where to send them in Newtown if anyone is interested.

I've had several folks contact me for sizing info so I went searching and found some site that should help for those of you that want to "create" an items on your own and not from a pattern :)
Knit, crochet, weave or sew!! :)
specific blanket sizes: http://www.planetshoup.com/easy/tips/afghsize.shtml
Those sizes are specific for bedding furniture - of course, anything between those sizes would work for blankets for babies to play on the floor!
Sizing chart for hats (preemies - adults): http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/size-chart.html#hat
This page also has foot lenghts if you wnat to make booties, and some blanket size suggestions as well.
