Hi, there!

I’m so thrilled to report that things are moving along very nicely now that we have some new procedures in place! We are getting caught up with blankets that have been waiting a long time and moving forward with newer requests. It’s so exciting!

I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you of a few things, especially for those of you who are contributing squares. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments.

Thanks!

1. Please weave in the ends on your squares. If you choose not to do this, please leave a 6″ tail *at both ends* of your squares so that the sponsor can weave them in him/herself. Tails that are too short are very difficult to weave in and can leave a blanket looking sloppy.

2. Please work to an appropriate gauge with your yarn. Squares with a loose gauge don’t hold up very well in a blanket and we’d hate for your work to get all stretched out and wonky looking. (That’s a technical term.) A slightly tighter than called for gauge works better within the structure of a blanket.

3. We will not be publishing shipping addresses on this blog. Our moderators use their personal addresses. If you need a shipping address, please email a moderator and she will respond with the appropriate shipping address. You can find our email addresses on the “Contact Us” page. The link is at the top of this page.
