It is really something to receive packages in the mail containing squares knitted for the blanket we are making for Tia Coleman. Today a square arrived all the way from Ellen in Norfolk, UK, the final piece in this sixteen-piece puzzle.
As it turns out, I haven’t been able to stop knitting squares for Tia, so this is going to be a 20-square blanket.
Thanks to these speedy and talented knitters for making this blanket a reality: Sue, Illinois; Kate, North Carolina; Nell, Virginia; Ellen, Norfolk, United Kingdom; Mary Anne, New York; Jeanne, California; Mary, Pennsylvania; Julibeth, New York; Irene, Michigan; Charlene, Connecticut; Kay, New York.
Next up: the sewing up begins.
Team Blanket Rocks On
Over in The MDK Lounge, the various groups making blankets are really cranking. If you’re looking to make a square (and truly, it is one of the more gratifying things you can do), there’s a new group just forming to make a blanket for a victim of the California wildfires. And several of the current Team Blankets are still accepting new volunteers.
If you’d like to be a team leader for a group-knit blanket, here’s our recent post explaining what Team Blanket is all about, and how to sign up as a team leader.
