It’s a little like Lucy and Ethel in the chocolate factory around here. Squares are backing up on the conveyor belt. Really fun, but leaving me short on time for stuff like doctor’s appointments. I will catch up over the weekend but I think it’s safe to say we’re getting close to 700 squares.
In my last post, I mentioned the need for dull/dark squares for the Grand Plan blanket design. People have generously emailed offers to dig up dark sock yarns from their stash and knit them up for me. Thank you so much, but I don’t think this will be necessary. Last night I took a look at the dull and dull-eligible squares, and I feel very confident that we are going to have enough. I am very grateful to knitters for taking time out of holiday preps and holiday knitting and holiday fatigue, to help out, and I don’t want to add more to your list by extending the deadline. If you’ve got unmailed squares, by all means send them in, but there is no need to knit more.
To others who have inquired so generously about helping with sew-up, that will definitely be needed. My reach is exceeding my grasp on this project (yay knitters!), and it’s more fun to sew in a group, with knitting water at the ready. I’m working on the details and will announce them as soon as I can.
Happy weekend everyone. Look for a square extravaganza soon. At some time, I’ll let Ann get a square in edgewise. At this point I’m a shameless blog-hogger. (AND LOVING IT!)
