Promise Blanket Update

The Promise Blanket is getting done. Thank you so much to all of you who have sent in a square (or two, or three). We will have a lovely throw-sized blanket to make us some good money for the Women's Advocate.

Here's a little preview of some squares:

1. Square 23, 2. Square 28, 3. Square 33, 4. Square 36, 5. Square 14, 6. Square 15, 7. Square 10, 8. Square 9, 9. Square 4

We do have a flickr account now that has some of the squares uploaded so you should click over and see all the pretties. I must admit that being as I have been dragging this blanket home then back to the Yarnery, then home, then (you get it) I've misplaced a few names and yarn info. If you see your square and it has no info let me know asap and I'll get that fixed right up.

I also wanted to let you all know that for the most part the sizes were just right. However, we do have a few squares that are too small to fit nicely into the blanket. Never fear, your work is not for nothing. As soon as the main blanket is done I'm settling in to seem together a smaller (aka baby) blanket. Everyone's hard work will be paying off, I promise.

And a shout out to the New York Knit Wits who sent in seven squares all the way from (you guessed it) New York. Ladies, thank you so much!!

Red Socks

After reading Lene's Blog this morning, I need stash enhancement. She just makes red socks sound so special. My less-special brown socks are seeming dull. This might be sock envy. I am loving the yarn and the fact that they are "chocolate". Really. That is the colorway. It's the color's name. Chocolate.

Somewhere in my remembering, I think I am supposed to take a photo of my sock on one of my travels this summer. With all of my plans to tend the garden, that seems the furthest and best place that I have been.

The Promise Blanket

Today marks the official one week countdown to the Promise Blanket Square deadline. So many people have taken the info from the store and now is the time to get those squares in.

Remember that the squares need to be in by July 15, 2008. Hand deliver them or send them. We just want to make sure that they are in this beautiful blanket.

Also, stay tuned for information about how you can have your shot at owning this great blanket... as well as helping a great organization.
