It arrived today, and is just beautiful. I'll try to remember to post a pix tomorrow, but right now I have to get to bed.

Yay! I'm so glad it got there safely!

If you don't mind, please lay the blanket out and measure it. I need to know if it's getting long enough yet. There is only one knitter left after you, before it comes back to me. If necessary, I can add another knitter or two. I have some pinch knitters ready.

I hope that this going to have the latest picture of the lapghan. I'm going to use an off-white Caron Simply Soft, but haven't quite decided on my stitch yet.

Hi Peattie!

Losnana just posted our latest photo a month ago. Right now, the lapghan is with misha rf in North Carolina. We are planning on getting together so I can get the lapghan back!

I'm sure I'll have lots of photos of the lapghan when that happens!

Today, I received our Lapghan!

Misha rf was the last knitter, and she sent it to me in the mail. (We never could work out a day to get together.)

So, here it is!


I think it's almost ready. There are a couple sections that are too tight, pulling in on the blanket. I'll have to do surgery on them, and then add a few more inches, then maybe a border.

Then, it will be ready to go to charity!

Misha was VERY nice to me.....she gave me two skeins of Malabrigo, in a gorgeous color!

You're quite welcome, Sandy! Glad you liked the yarn! I'd meant to tell you that you can snag the photos from my flickr account or my rav projects page. I've been sooooo easily distracted these days, it's a wonder I get anything done!

Woo Hoo!!!!
Contact your local newspapers!!!!

Our Oddball Lapghan has found a home!!
(In fact, I think I'll take BOTH lapghans to this place.)

I heard back from the Battered Women's Shelter in my area, and they are VERY happy to accept our blankets!

Here's the email I received today:

Dear Sandy,

I received this email from our Chief Operating Officer, Sharon Thacker. WOW! What an honor that you would consider us for your beautiful hand knit blanket!

I can only imagine how much time and work went into the blanket! I coordinate our Rape Crisis center and our Tree House Children's Advocacy Center in Union County to assist child and adult victims of violence.

At our Tree House, children (ages 0-18) come to a child/teen friendly place where they have a forensic interview and a "head to toe" exam. They are then able to receive counseling/play therapy at no cost to the family. During the medical exam, children pick out a blanket or quilt to either cover up with or snuggle with as a comfort. They then get to keep the blanket.

I would be thrilled for you to see the place! We also serve victims at the hospital when they go through the rape kit process. The blanket would be a special way for our survivors to begin their healing!

Thank you so much for thinking about us and for the beautiful handcrafted work that you and others are creating to give to someone going through a very tragic time. It's people like you Sandy, that make the world a better place! I look forward to hearing from you!

Gratefully,

Brandy K. Redmile Stephens, MA, LPC
