Oh I see what you mean. Getting it stay flat might be a problem, but it's worth a try!

Hey, Jul! I finally finished our 17-yr old friend's clogs! I bet he's 18 by now, no?

As you might have noticed, I've been a bit ... uh ... absent of late. :rollseyes: It has just been insanely busy around our household the past few weeks, and I find myself w/out the time or energy to devote to KH like I have in the past. Honestly, that's probably a good thing, but I do miss chatting with everyone here.

Katy ... the checkerboard sounds really neat! I'm thinking they might just want to use it in the Childlife Center instead of passing it on, but we'll see.

And, Kelly, even though dear Patrick might be 18, he'd still love that someone made something for him! I think he's actually done w/ his chemo now. Thank God!

We are going to be @ the Outpatient Clinic on Tues. ... I wish I could say for sure that we could swing over & pick up the cloggies, but I don't know if we'll have the time. As you know, we're heading to Disney on Thurs, and we have something to do every darn day between now and then, and I don't know HOW I'm going to get everything packed and all the laundry done, etc etc ... I guess it will get done, or we'll just leave w/out it.

OK ... we'll work something out w/ the cloggers ... I'll give you a call next week or somethin. <sigh> I need to go to bed ... ttys!!

Katy --

I'll make sure they know it's for Todd. ;-) And, actually, it would probably be better if it went to him, anyway, because they have to disinfect all the toys after someone uses them. I guess my point before was that they're gonna LOVE it! They've been so amazed by the stuff you all have made. I don't think they knew that all of these unique items could be made simply by "knitting." :D

True enough (about the disinfection).. I worked in daycare once upon a time, and that's what they had to do every afternoon while the kids were sleeping!! Not my idea of fun, but very necessary!
