the blanket is safe; I promise!

just touching base letting you know that the blanket is safe and sound at my home... I have knitted a few bits to add to it but haven't found the time to assemble it.

I also have no idea where I'm supposed to send it so whoever I am sending it to please email me - you can find my email on my website and let me know...

I need to get some goodies together as well and pack it all up... in the next few weeks I should be able to finish it :)

hugs to everyone! it is looking fantastic!

It's Kyle's Turn!

I got my package from Rachel! (Thanks, Rachel!) - and the blanket is safe and sound in Los Angeles, CA now... along with the blanket (which is looking pretty awesome), I got all kinds of goodies, including locally grown/made bachlava, coffee, cat toys and even doggie cookies that Rachel made for Buster and Tricksy! - they love them! she sent the recipe along too which I thought was a real treat! - and the best of all - some roving that she dyed - I am still learning how to spin, but I appreciate the gift.... once I get a little better, I'll try it out... I can't wait to see how it turns out :)

I have a few pieces to add to the blanket already, but right now, I'm trying to figure out how I want to add... anyone know where the blanket goes next? am I the "last" one to get to add? (Jodie, you'd know best)

hugs to everyone - I can't wait to play with the blanket....

oregon blanket update

Well here is part of my square. I might make the other half of the miter (though it would have to be solid purple as I'm out of the blue), or I might just attach it and make a border.

I'm already plotting the wonderful things I'll send along to Kyle!! Stay tuned!

Hellooooo Blankie!

The blankie has been with me for about 2 weeks... Maybe less. At any rate I am a bad blogger and haven't updated. Don't worry the blanket is fine. I finished one miter square, but it came out very small so I am making it a little friend.
I have no pictures of the blanket yet so you will have to content yourselves with a picture of my cat Jonis being cute.

With Deep Apologies

Dear Knitters,
When the sign-up for the blanket went around my son was 6 months old
and still pretty sedentary. By the time I got the blanket things had
changed substantially - walking, running, pulling everything off the
I held on to the blanket, planning to do my piece right after I knit
my son some mittens and the holiday craziness had passed. The came an
unplanned but much needed house-rearrangement. The blanket continued
to sit. I kept planning to get to it. In the house rearrangement
(still on going the way a big project will be) all my knitting
needles were lost and my yarn is deep in a pile of things that need
to be put away.
After holding on to the blanket for 2 1/2 months, I finally realized
that there is no way I will get around to this project in the near
future. So I planned to get it back to Jodie or to the next person,.
Then my son came down with Pink-Eye, keeping us inside and away from
the public for a solid week - up until we went out of town. It's been
crazy. Anyway, it's finally on its way to the next person, who will
undoubtedly do a better job than I can.
I am very sorry that I wasn't able to meet my commitment to this
project, and I hope that you all don't think of me too badly.

Blankie up-date

Just a little update to let everyone know where the blanket is and the last few places it needs to go!

Right now the blanket is hanging out at Taylor's place (She got it during the holiday season, so naturally it wasn't a huge priority) and is doing well. It should be finished fairly soon, and on it's way to the last few places. Here are the last few destinations it needs to go.

Then back to me!

I hadn't really realized how close we were to finishing! I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Hope all is well with your projects!
