I love this idea! My daughter is graduating from Tech the weekend of May 11th. I'll actually be able to drop this at the store!

Congratulations to your daughter!!! Please give her my best wishes for the future!

On the squares front I went to my not so lys and they were sold out of Hokie colors. I really had my heart set on not doing a white or black one!I am going shopping this afternoon and will check out my lys even though the owner is a bit crazy and scares me.

Im hoping to wander by the store this week, just been wanting to stop by and haven't had a chance. Thank you all for doing this, it really means so much to the community that people from all over are reaching out!

If you're interested in what campus looks like with the memorials, I've put up pictures on my website (see my signature) and i'll be getting more this weekend...

I finished my square and blocked it. I will mail it tomorrow.
I would post a pic but I can't load pictures just now. My husbands setting me up witha new computer so I will be able to in a few days.

I hope they get enough squares and have a good seaming up party.

Just FYI, since I know yarn types was a question that came up
so it doesnt matter if its acrylic or wool?

Very pretty! What stitch and color is that? I finished one and began a second one tonight.

It is horizontal parallelogram check from Barbara Walker's Treasury of Knitting patterns. It is hard to photograph details on red, I think.
The yarn is Mission Falls Super wash. I'm not sure of the color but it's a dark red.

Two down, one in progress, and enough yarn for several more. I did one in Rowan Summer Tweed, and one in Cascade Jewel. I'm doing a modular square (4 squares in one) in Cascade 220. I'll try to get pictures up tomorrow

Mine is off to the post office today. I didn't take a picture of it before sealing the envelope, but it's maroon, done in the Belt Welt stitch from the stitch library at http://www.knittingfool.com.

Eloewien, do you think Mosaic will post pictures of some of the blankets before they are presented to the families?
