Hi from Belle - via Donni

Belle is having trouble posting on the blog but asked me to let you all know the rug arrived at her place and she is knitting away as I type.

She will update you as soon as she can.

It's on the Road Again

I finished my section last night - sadly can't flash photos as my camera is at home - but I really enjoyed doing it.

The rug came with me to my Kids T-ball training session and a little 5 year old girl spied it. I almost had to wrestle her to the ground to get it off her - so there's proof in the pudding. A little girl is going to love it.

Last night as I tucked in my almost 7 year old daughter - I saw that she still had her blankie there - the one she got given when she was born. Wouldn't it be nice to think that what we all created together will be loved that much.

Thanks - I loved being a part of it.

On the road again!

The rug is now on its way to the beautiful coastal city of Wollongong.

I had intended to knit a lace pattern in acrylic to lighten the weight, but the rug cried for a stranded colour pattern [in wool]!

Here's what I wrote in the book:
As you wrap this blanket around you
or snuggle under its comforting warmth
draw strength and courage from the love knitted into every stitch.
Here's the rug so far [spread out over two circular needles]

And here's a close up of the last three knitters' work:

Thanks, Joy, for allowing me to be part of this.
