Warming Grace Update
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your enthusiastic response - I must say I have been teary at times. I spoke with my brother yesterday who was, quite frankly, blown away (okay, he is not a knitter and he even laughed at my Olympic Knitting medal so he clearly doesn't understand the knitting community!). I asked him about another possible recipient for a blanket because clearly - and thankfully - I will have more than enough squares for two warming blankets. It turns out that Grace's best friend is Simone, who also has cancer (they met at the hospital) so two groovy pink girlie girl warming blankets will be done! I am hoping to get a picture of Grace and Simone so I can post them on the blog. In more good news, Amanda, has generously offered to donate a prize to one of the knitters making squares. I realize that volunteering to make a square(s) has nothing to do with getting a prize but I am not going to say no to such wonderful generosity! Thank you very much Amanda! I am also going to donate a gift (brand new and not from my ginormous stash - woowee, it means I can buy and not be accumulating!). I will do the draw after all the squares are received (deadline April 30). In more news, Wendy, is donating her entire stash of Pink and Purple Leila (there is quite a bit) so, with the help of some local (Toronto) help I will make yet another blanket for some little girl out there. You knitters are so amazing! Of course, anyone who wants to join please do! Details are in the post below - no square will be turned away!
