August Has Been MIA!
August is one of those Oddball Blankets that someone has been holding onto for quite some time now. Spikey and I have been trying to retrieve a number of blankets that went to this individual; blankets that others have been waiting for. This includes both worsted weight as well as our preemies.

Just yesterday I heard from this person and am hopeful that all blankets will be mailed back to me as soon as possible. Once I have the blankets in hand, I will check the spreadsheet and mail out blankets to the next knitter.

In the meantime, let's keep our attention on the blankets getting back to CT.

I apologize for the inconvenience to all involved.

Thanks so much, Spikey! It looks awesome... We'll get some lavender in there yet.

thanks for the post about the MIA blankets, gmmarton - I was wondering about a few of them ... I hope they make it back to you soon.

I'd love a spot on Lemon Drop or Gumdrops if there is still a space. I don't want to take too much more until I'm all done with my gift knitting. But a preemie break is such a treat from the miles of stockinette in the cardigan for my mom!

Farm Fresh is beautiful, sarahbean and GREAT JOB with the border! That was your first, right? It looks terrific!

Thanks, gmmarton, for your assistance. After the last minute trip to New Mexico, I had to go to NYC on 12 hours notice yesterday... Hopefully, things will settle down for a bit soon. I leave for Chicago a week from today, but will have my laptop with me, and just work, no co-workers or family to fight with KH & Rav for my time.
