I think the blanket is due for some red.

Ooh I just started a project in Simply Soft and I LOVE it. Like serious, serious love . I've worked with many nice wools but I can't wear them next to my skin and the Simply Soft is just sooooooo smushy and nice. So I vote for that!

Update on the afghan length: I have some strange measuring-tape deficiencies, but I'm getting a length between 50 and 52 inches depending on how I hold it.

I'm packing things up and HollyP I hope to have it in the mail to you by lunchtime tomorrow.

I love being agreed with! All day I was watching my 3 yr old godson whose favorite sentence is no. I will not!
I got the delivery confirmation and will start stalking my mailman early next week. He is going to think I have a serious crush on him. I have been stalking him for weeks now first for the swap, then for some yarn my SIL sent me, now the blanket and some sock yarn from HelloKitty.

I just got a call while in between classes and the blanket has arrived at my house! I'll post more later, just wanted to ease everyone's minds about the shipping.
