I managed to do these in DC while watching the rest of that course on Academic Earth. Finally.
When I came home, the newsletter from my chapter of Project Linus was waiting for me. It had a note that we donated 50 blankets to kids in Joplin, Missouri. I appreciated that.
Both the fleece and the yarn for these blankets were from Penny's stash. The yarn was K-Mart's house brand, which had to have been ancient, but worked really well. I forget what the color was called. I did three rows around the purple one and two around the blue and white. I was afraid I would run out of yarn before finishing a third round.
But that reminds me: Penny also had a note in the newsletter that the stitcher-type ladies made, collected or finished 70 blankets at last month's Starbucks Night. Normally, there are about 30 - so that rocks, too.
