I'll be on the look out for it!

Have to admit I was freaking about participating last night -- performance anxiety -- calmed down when reminded I am knitting this out of my love for children & wanting to touch their lives as well as their parents.

You know, I did too...for the first few blankets I worked on. Once I figured out that nobody is judging your work, and that it IS for charity, I relaxed. Now, I look at it as an opportunity to try new stitches. It's a lot of fun and for a good cause.
