Patriotic Pets will be ready to go out in the mail tomorrow. I need to contact KristinMei for an address. I'll also post a picture to show how the snuggie is coming along.

Hi guys - sorry I've been MIA! For some reason, I stopped getting notifications on updates to this thread. I've still got Pumpkin Patch. I've had an unexpectedly busy semester at school and zero free time, so I haven't finished it yet, but should be able to get it moving soon!. Sorry for the delay!

I hope all is going well with school, and don't be concerned about a delay. Happens to all of us for one reason or another.

All is well, Kristin. At least, I hope all is well... especially with you. Patriotic Pets will go out in the mail tomorrow.

I'm glad to see the blankets moving along!

I've started knitting again and am current working on three projects: the placemat, the log cabin blanket, and a new scarf for my youngest. I watched the last three episodes of "Full Circle" last night (a DirecTV mini-series) and worked on a different project for each episode. I haven't figured out what I want to commit to yet.

My daughter and I are going to an overnight zoo trip with her scouting troop tomorrow (one night) and I'm debating which one to bring with me. I'm sure I'll have time to work on something! I'm torn between the garter stitch afghan and the rib stitch scarf. The scarf is smaller, but garter stitch might be better when there is a lot going on around me.

If I'm creative, I might be able to fit all three projects into the bag that I'm currently keeping the afghan in.

Sounds like a very full schedule, as usual. The zoo night should be lots of fun. Do you think there's the possibility of a knitting badge for your daughter's scout troop?

Yes, there is one -- I'm just not sure that I am up to the task of teaching *20* 6-8 year olds to knit!

It's part of a "textile" badge -- they have to learn about a few skills like knitting, sewing, needlepoint, etc and then pick one, learn to do it, and then talk to their troop about the experience.

I may try it with my daughter, as I have a needlecraft skills, but right now she is working independently (that is, not with her troop) on her art badge. She is a talented painter for her age -- in *my* opinion -- and I'm encouraging her to work on that first.

It's gotten very quiet again. How's the knitting going, everybody? I'm ready to work on another blanket!

Hi Everyone. Sorry for being so quiet. I'm still waiting on Blue Skies, but once I get that I can finish and start another blanket. I don't know if you want to start the list for it or wait until Blue Skies is finished.
