Found it! I guess I forgot we had one we were still trying to fill up. Sorry about that.

Susan -- if you don't mind, I'll put you at the end to donate Patriot Pets.

Here's my latest blanket list -- are there any updates?

I still have Blue Skies and am nearly done with it; just one or two more rows. It took me awhile to get started -- I didn't knit most of the summer and I kept forgetting I was supposed to be working on it.

I've started knitting again, since not knitting wasn't working out for me. It seems I have to knit continuously or not at all; I couldn't stop and then start back up for a small project -- I just kept putting it off because "it's small and quick". It's not small or quick if I *never* work on it.

I may need to move the list around a bit for Sunrise Snuggle, depending on where it is right now. It may be okay the way it is, but if Kari is in line for two blankets at once, I may switch her with Susan.

Sounds good to me.

I finished my section of Blue Skies last night -- it just needs to be photographed, packed up and sent out!

The rest has nothing to do with pet blankets; apparently now that I've decided to resume knitting, I want to go on and on about it!

I'm trying to make cotton placemats. I have yarn -- two skeins of the same color (Red Liquorice) -- and a pattern.

(I also have one skein of white chocolate, hoping I find another one someday, and a skein of brown chocolate in case I don't find another white. This seems to be an in-store only sort of yarn.)

I bought two skeins so that I could knit with two strands, and then decided to just do one strand and see how it turned out. After 16 rows, I did my section of the pet snuggle and decided to go back to two strands, no pattern. I frogged it, picked up the yarn from both skeins, cast on 60 stitches and started working the pattern, (having changed my mind while frogging). I knit 8 rows before quitting for the night.

Just before going to bed, I compared it to one of the placemats I'm using now and it's too short.

Driving in this morning, the Yarncraft podcast I was listening to had a segment about the importance of gauge swatches. Maybe I should pay attention?

I'm now thinking that I should do a gauge swatch rather than just frogging and casting on an extra 4 or 12 stitches. At this point, I might as well go all the way and find out if it is going to shrink in the wash before I go too much farther. Placemats are not exact, but I don't want them to be too small! And not making the swatch isn't exactly saving me time and effort! LOL

What are you all working on?

I haven't heard back from Kari. I hope she is all right and just busy.

She is signed up for two sections -- I'm thinking about doing one of her sections and then sending it to her to do just one, if she is available.

What do you all think? Should I give her more time to respond? I'm going to send her a second PM in case the first one never reached her.

Does anyone want to volunteer for that other section, in case we don't hear back?

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.

Sorry! I'm here. I saw the message in my email last week and deleted the email and totally forgot to log in here and reply. My life is settling down next week so I should be ready for whatever (my daughter is going back to college I can still do 2 sections on blue skies if you still need it!

I messaged Katie my address. Let me know if you need anything else.

If Janis wants my spot on Patriotic Pets that would be fine! I could start a new blanket if you like!
