Hello, everyone -- I'm Elizabeth, and I'm the blog moderator/host/what have you. I was a member of the old blog, too, and I don't expect this particular position to be any work at all, because it's always been a friendly, agreeable group. But -- if you have any questions that you can't find an answer to over at the Afghans for Afghans web site, want reassurance before you start a project, would like to recommend a free pattern to add to the sidebar resources, or need help with anything else, feel free to contact me. If I don't know the answer, I'll find out quickly. My Blogger name is duraknit, and I can't change it because it goes to something else I do, but I sign my posts as Elizabeth D so you'll know who I am.
I've been knitting for Afghans for Afghans since the very first campaign, and I think there are only two or three times I haven't sent something. It means so much to me to be able to do something concrete by sending a warm garment or blanket to a cold and troubled part of the world.
I had the blanket for this campaign all designed, in my head, but the yarn I wanted to use is hiding, so it's going to be a little different from what I'd planned. But still fun. Next weekend is the Philadelphia Folk Festival (I live near Philadelphia), and that's always a prime knitting opportunity for me, so I'll be cranking out 10-inch squares. I'll take pictures as soon as there's something to show.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else is doing.
