Hey Southeast!
I just wanted to let you all know that I am going out of town late this afternoon until Sunday afternoon/night. I may or may not have internet access. If any blankets need to be sent to me go ahead and send them. I'll work on them the minute I get home!

Cookies & Cream
Cookies & Cream went out to Moxiemade today. The confirmation number is 0308 0070 0001 1386 7765

Hope you enjoy it.

There is a spot where I think I tried to fix a mistake and it has a small loop. If you know how to fix that after the fact please feel free to help me out. I didn't know how to fix it and didn't notice until I had finished. Sorry.

I agree. One of the things I love about our oddball projects is that they are perfect for beginning knitters....especially if they knit one of the sections in the middle. They don't have to cast on or bind off - they just add their yarn and start knitting. And garter stitch looks good with everything.

Good plan. I have a wish list on my website, and lots of people like to refer to that when they want to send me something.
I'd be willing to fill out a questionnaire. I think we should include a section where we can write in simple things we like, that might not be knitting-related. For example, I like to get old magazines, because I can't afford to subscribe to many of them. It's cool to get them in the mail from friends.

What about a favorite store to shop in? I was think if someone didn't know what to get a gift card is always nice.
