More Blankets

Just when I thought I was done with the Afghans for Afghans blankets, yesterday a sad post about Mason-Dixon Knitting’s Kay Gardiner was revealed.  Kay’s husband died after a brief illness.

In the post, Ann Shayne asks the knitters to knit for Afghans for Afghans in Peter’s memory. I had the modest idea of collecting worsted-weight squares for a baby blanket on Ravelry here. It quickly multiplied, and we now have almost five  baby blanket’s worth of squares in process – well distributed work, I might add.

Out of the ashes of grief and loss, five babies will be warmed in Peter’s memory.  That’s new life I can believe in.

Possibly. It’s a mitered square blanket, so it’ll be sewn together and then need to add a border. If the final square comes today, I’ll bring them tonight to have you take a look.
