Sandy,

How sweet of you to thank us, but the truth is I want to thank you. You have given of your time and stash to start these wonderful blankets because you have a heart that is bigger than most anyone I know. I had been wanting to do some charity knitting, but it is only because of you that I actually did it. So, thanks you Sandy, just for being you!!

Melissa

I agree with everyone else, even though I haven't participated yet. We need to say thank you to you! You're the one who spent all your time organizing 5 Oddball projects! None of us would have participated in these charity projects if it wasn't for you!

I never would have done this if it weren't for you Sandy. Honestly, I had never considered charity knitting before because I barely have time to knit for myself. But this was too fun not to participate. What a great idea. I hope to participate in another one sometime. Thank you to all who signed up because I couldn't have done this without you and a big thank you to Sandy for starting it!

I agree with everyone else!

Personally, I would have thrown in the towel (or dishcloth) when the blanket turned into a monkey! But not Shandeh! She just made ANOTHER blanket and kept the ball rolling!

Ditto to the other comments, Sandy. I've thought in recent weeks that you must be a natural born leader with a really big heart.

And speaking of "oddball", is that supposed to describe the projects, or the knitters making them?
