Sandy that is soo cool!
Feel better soon Elizabeth! I totally understanf the doing something in your sleep. I have had more than my fair share of sleep induced injuries.

As for schools near the hospital I really don't think that is too much of a concern. The hospital is located in a BIG military area. People are from everywhere! So it is very conceivable that any team we would do would have a fan. One day my sil and I were out shopping and lost count after 15 different college team shirts we saw in about 2 hours. It's definitely not like say Ohio where every one roots for The Ohio State University.

Aww...thanks! You can do it....just take your time. The first thing I did was the words. When I saw how many spaces I had left, I realized I had room for a star on each end.

Butterfly Kisses looks fantastic!

I hope everyone is doing better.

I finished my section of M&M's today and as I was arranging it to take a picture I couldn't figure out why it looked a little funky compared to the rest of it. Finally I realized that I had forgotten my knitted edge stitches! GRR!! I can't believe I did that. It really stood out and so I frogged my section and started reknitting it tonight. Hopefully I'll get it done in the next day or two after work. I'm so sorry about the delay. :(

Nice work Elizabeth! It really is looking GREAT! I'll check with the next knitter.

And don't worry about it taking longer Carmen, I think it's great that you took the time to frog all you did to make it look better. Sorry that you had to.

I am LOVING this idea (and am jealous that I didn't think of it myself!). I didn't go to any of the big schools, so I am not really particuar which one(s) I'd knit on. But I definitely think we should do it!
