First I have to say thank you! The knitting community is amazing. So many people have volunteered to knit squares for Grace and continue to do so! I have had several questions so I thought I would put them all in one place. 1. 5" squares in soft wool or cotton in ANY pattern is perfect. I am thinking if I get the squares by the end of the month I will then put it together (is there some irony in the fact that this "I hate to sew" knitter is taking on this project? LOL ! I can do this for Grace) I know we have seen this photo but it is my favourite! 2. When signing up make sure I have your email so that I can send you my snail mail address. If you have signed up and you haven't heard from me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can get you my address. 3. Amanda kindly made a button (on my sidebar) - please feel free to take it! Thanks Amanda; it is really beautiful! 4. When sending your square please send a blank postcard from where you hail. I want to photograph each square and paste the photo on the back with the knitter. This will be a great way for Grace and her parents to understand where all the squares are coming from (and I am going to make a little scrapbook type binder to hold them all!). 5. Please put a note in for Grace if you want. While she may not comprehend it all right now; she will in the future and I am sure that her parents will keep the notes in her memory box. 6. About Grace - she loves Barbie, flowers, jewellry, painting her nails and chicken fingers. She is all about anything girlie girl, teddy bears and cuddly things. She has a very sweet laugh and a soft little voice. She is absolutely in love with Nick. 7. I know that there will be more than enough squares for one blanket. So I will keep putting together what I get (with what I make - even Nick is volunteering to make a square or two); I know that there are other little girls in need - whether at the Children's Cancer Center where Grace is or somewhere else (if you know of someone email me!). I will be in touch with my brother and his wife to find out if there is a another little girl they know of. My plan is to make the blanket bright and colourful in all shades of girly pink and maybe even some purples. I hope to knit some flowers and applique where appropriate. I am researching my edging. Carole O Clowe, one my knitting buddies, summed it up best when she emailed me: "We are all Embracing Grace - we are all joining together to embrace her with warmth, love and strength." As knitters we know better than anyone else the power of what we create. Regardless of who we knit for I think we knit miracles. I am glad that Grace is on our list right now! Thank you.
