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.
