Remember when I used to write about knitting?
Uh, remember when I used to knit?
Anyway, I'm going to rekindle my knitting flame with help from the Crazy Aunt Purl knitalong. The gist is, Crazy Aunt Purl's grandmother is ailing and in a nursing home and not doing so well. Upon hearing (reading) this, one of Purl's IIFs, lept into action and orchestrated this knitalong, wherein she's asking everyone to simply knit an 8" square (blocked*) and send it to her. She will put them all together and sew them into a handmade blanket for Grandma Purl.
I should note, the woman running this effort is named Kristy, and I have to think she's a better Kristy than I am (seeing as I'm trying to get all riled up to knit EIGHT WHOLE INCHES and she's off coordinating an entire knitting rescue effort, ahem).
So join in if you can or will. Because even *I* can finish A SQUARE by Thanksgiving, you know?
*Never blocked before. Anyone with tips for how to make something "Eight Inches Blocked" should please send them along!
