To my NE Oddball friends:
I have an unexpected project in the near future that will require lots of time after school and weekends. As I am the ďgo-toĒ person for this project, Iím sorry to say I must surrender my responsibilities regarding the worsted weight Oddball baby blankets. I wonít be available to start new blankets, update and maintain posts on the thread, spreadsheet, and Blogs, nor will I be able to pull the blankets together and distribute to the Pediatrics Unit of Bridgeport Hospital.
My heart feels very heavy writing this
as I have grown quite attached to the Oddball Group and the unique personalities Iíve come to know and care about. We have done so well with all of our blankets and I am especially proud of the fifty-five worsted weight blankets knit over eighteen months (and delivered to Bridgeport Hospital).
The flip side of that is that Iím also feeling overwhelmed
a not-so-good feeling, as my professional responsibilities continue to expand. After decades of teaching, I never thought it would get this complicated!
Iíd certainly like to keep knitting on any blankets where my name is already listed on the spreadsheet; hopefully, Iíll be knitting more blankets for the NE Oddball Group once I get out of school in late June.
In the meantime, keep up the great work. Know that you have made a difference in some little personís life.
Wishing you continued good fortune,
