Hi everyone. I am sure you are all wondering what happened to the blanket! At the time that it came I was desperately trying to finish a couple of projects for upcoming birthdays, so I had to finish those. Then my birthday came, and my dear hubbie swept me away for a little trip (this was a milestone birthday.)
Since then I have been stressing about my addition to this blanket. You wouldn't believe the trouble I had finding purple superwash. I had my heart set on purple, you know. I also wanted soft, but turns out that was asking a little much. Then, I realized I wasn't quite smart enough to figure out how to connect onto two sides at once. The other night in desperation I picked up stitches on a long side, smack in the middle no less, and started knitting, so I wouldn't have to join on a side. Now it looks like I don't play well with others! I just looked at the list of people who are left, and I am not sure there are enough left to fill in all the space I have left.....My husband says "It's knitting, Tammi, not rocket science. Knit it and send it on." I promise, Taylor, that I will send it soon.
And I will email pics to Jodie, so maybe she can post them, since I can't figure out how..

have no fear my dear - if there are spots that need filling when I get it, I'll be more than happy to do some filling! - it'll be a wonderful chance to work on some of my freeform knitting! :) - I don't know where I am on the list; but I'm patiently waiting and eager to play part in this super cool project!

oh - and happy birthday! :)

I also have fillers here in Eugene if there are any spaces open! I never imagined this project being a perfect square anyway! Can't wait to see it.
