Hi everyone! I'm Bloo, in Ontario (Canada). I've been knitting for A4A for a little while - I had to take a hiatus due to a sore wrist but have been back since the start of the year.
I'm happy about the blanket campaign, as I finished one knitted corner-to-corner rectangular blanket in May, and have enough 10"x10" squares to sew together for another blanket. This will give me incentive to actually weave in all the ends and sew the squares together!
I have also started another blanket using the Finnias pattern (http://oneschemeofhappiness.typepad.com/home/2007/09/finnias.html). I think this is a great pattern because you can use up miscellaneous colours but the blanket will still be symetrical becuase it grows from the inside out, and you are knitting around the edges. I just made the centre panel a rectangle instead of a square so I will end up with a blanket in the correct dimensions for the campaign.
