Newamy just sent me a private message with the following thoughts:
"Are you going to set a time limit like say 2 weeks to knit then send it on? I know it seems pushy but sometimes rings can get "stuck". Also if someone decides they really don't have time they should send it on or just ask to be skipped."
I agree with this 100%
Two weeks is PLENTY of time to knit a few rows on the blanket.
Also, some of us may have problems that arise at exactly the same time the blanket appears on our doorstep. If that's the case, just let me know, and forward the blanket on to the next person. We can send it back to you at a later date when your life isn't as hectic.
