Quick update.

I am unsure if I will have time this weekend to do another big update, it will be a busy one!
I wanted to share a project that I am working on for charity with a group of like-minded west-coast folk.

This is the Spring Fever blanket from the Stitch It! podcast group on Ravelry. The podcast is one of my favorites, and Meghan proposed charity blanket knitting... we all jumped in. I am second to last knitting this blanket. I have to add four inches and send it off by next week. I am pretty sure that I will add a few goodies to it, but I am not sure what yet.

Speaking of goodies. I had a contest ages ago and I have to confess that my runner-up hasn't gotten her packet yet. Never fear Kathy.... I have it ready.... and I will post pics after I get that in the mail (probably Monday) I am horribly embarrassed that it has taken this long... my only defence is, I just moved into a new house, and I'm planning my wedding for this fall. Sorry excuse, but that is it.

I continue to knit on the Flower bud shawl, the Watery Root (if I can find the pattern that I have my notes on.....) and my socks. Nothing done yet, but I am hopeful. This weekend promises to be busy, I don't think that there will be much knitting done.

Locally I wanted to remind you that there is a Picknit at the Surrey Museum in Cloverdale on August 9th. I will add a link in the next post. The general idea is you bring a picnic lunch, can shop local vendors, see the textile exhibit and meet up with friends outside for some public knitting. Hopefully we can meet up. Have a great and sunny weekend!

Great blanket! I really like it. I need to join one of those "a-longs". I think it would be fun!

That charity blanket is gorgeous, Holls! XD You should add some beads or something pretty! XD {Maybe sparkly yarn, yes/yes?}

I'd love to do Picknit! Please do post a link, maybe at Langley Knit Night Ravelry group? XD

Ooooooh pretty! I love the colors. Excellent job! I admire people that charity knit. When I was a social worker, some of my clients received handmade blankets and they appreciated it so much-- there were tears!

In short, its a good thing to do. Kudos!
