I, too, think the group projects are fun. It's cool to see what everyone else has done when the blankets come in. But I agree that they should keep moving. I've been holding onto Blue Skies because I'll have another snuggle coming in to donate as well, but am considering taking it in anyway. I will certainly let everyone know where it ends up.

I have Scrappy Snuggle ready to move on, and will be mailing it to Janis this weekend.

Please don't send it on yet. I don't that think that Janis the next knitter; I've been waiting for the signups to finish before I put out the list. She hasn't had a chance to donate / start a blanket yet, and I'd like to make her last on that one, if she doesn't mind. I don't know yet who gets it after you.

(If you've already sent it, never mind. I should have said something earlier about not mailing out until signups are complete.)

Thanks!

I also do like doing these blankets as a group! It is for a good cause and hope this small group can continue. When I first join it was that you had 3 weeks to get the blanket done. Which I think is a good amount of time. As we all know things come up in our lives that we can't help. If you are the next knitter and unable to take it let that person know or sakura-panda so it can be given to some who is free to do it. We can make this work!

I've also got a snuggle ready to go if there is enough interest. Just need to know where to send it!

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

I will wait to send it. I thought that she was next on the list, but you are right that the sign-ups are not complete. Thanks.
