I have taught that song to several of my piano students.

It's one of the pieces in the Piano Adventures series by Randall and Nancy Faber.

Here's a listening file I found online of John McCutcheon singing it.

The blog is complete, and so is our map.
We're ready to roll!

I just spent some time reading SimplyKaar's KH blog, and learned that she has cats. So, I will make a minor adjustment in the order of things.

SimplyKaar, you can mail your package to ME when you finish your knitting. I'll put the stitches on a sturdy piece of yarn, and wash the blanket real good to get it ready to travel to Washington. (Several knitters at the top of the list have allergies to pets and smoke.) I do not smoke, and have no pets, so I'll be able to get it clean and clear before mailing it.
Sorry for the little mix-up, my friends!

I'm so sorry; in all of the excitement of being able to join in, I completely forgot to mention that I indeed have cats. I'm so used to having them around that I usually forget that it could cause problems for some people.
Thank you for catching that Sandy!

Sandy,

I don't see a bullet (stopover) for my location on the map. I kind of see where a line flies sort of over my city. I just want to make sure you don't forget about me (although I did see my name on the list).

Forgive me for being paranoid. I just want to see the FL Panhandle duly represented. PLUS, I am PSYCHED about this!!!!

Awesome blog, Shandeh! Can't wait to see pictures as the blanket makes its way around the world! It will be a while before it gets to me, so I'll have to be patient.... {sigh}

SimplyKaar, don't worry about it at all. I'm just glad I figured it out before it was too late.

I am very allergic to cats myself, so when I get the package from you, I'll open it outside and shake it out real good. Then, I'll take it in the house and throw it in the washer.

That's what I plan on doing with ALL of the blankets when they end up at my house (except for the wool one - I'm still brainstorming about that one). Maybe I'll have to get one of you pet-owners to finish that one up for us.

Auburnchick, the map dots are just to represent the STATES where the blanket will be travelling. I didn't want the world to know EXACTLY where we are all located.

JamOKnit, I'm sorry you have to wait! If you want, you can join the Oddball Shawl knit-along, so you'll have something to work on in the meantime.

Hello threesmom's son!
Here's a picture of an airplane you can print out and color!

Oh my gosh, everything's a song for me! Now I've got another one to add to my madness!

Well, God is definitely going to teach me patience since I'm at the bottom. The good thing is I get to actually see the whole thing. La la laaaaaaaaa................

This is a great blog! Can't wait to "watch" the progress.

Ha, ha, Shandeh, like I don't have enough pending projects already! Not to worry, I have plenty of knitting to keep me busy until the blanket arrives!

p.s. most likelyI will be in a new house by then so when I know the new address, I will let you know. We got an offer on our house after only 1 day on the market!!! Woo HOOOOOO!
