Anyway about 4 1/2 years ago my sweet, kind, loving cousin died from cancer. She was taken from us WAY to soon and we all miss her very much. In the last years of her life (and maybe longer) she was a avid knitter. She did a lot of stuff for other people, but one of the projects that she left undone was a blanket for her sister Kim (my cousin that just visited here). So at the family reunion all the knitters in the family got together and split up the yarn so that we all could get the project done. So when Kim came here we looked through all the yarn and figured out how many blocks we all needed to make to get a nice sized blanket.
The one on the left is by Julie and the one on the right is mine. I think they it will work. In case any of the other knitters on this project are reading this I cast on 20 and that seems to be about what she did. It took me about 1/2 hour to knit this one so it does not seem so much of a task as it did before today:) I am really looking forward to the fact that all the blocks can be different so that I can try some fun patterns .... like cables .... stay tuned and I will post them when I can.
