The generosity of knitters continues to blow me away. Today, in the mail, was a package from Jesse in NJ, a lady who I've never met. She was kind enough to send me some lengths of yarn for my pink blanket. Jesse, thank you so very much.
Aside from the fun I'm having of making the blanket, it's been great to see yarns from companies, likely independent dyers, for the first time, e.g. Woolly Bully, Zen Yarn Garden and Yarn Pirate are three. Each skein has pink in it, sometimes in combinations that I would never have thought about.
I don't know how many little blocks I'm going to make for this afghan yet, but so far I have completed 26 and worked in the ends, so I'm off to a good start.
