Sorry I haven't been around. I'm finally to my real schedule at work, hopefully my stress level will drop off a little bit & I can go back to posting semi-regularly. A gal on the socknitters list posted this pattern, it's fabulous, isn't it? I'm thinking it may show up on the socknitters SAM group....
Interweave Knits Crochet 2005: Free Projects
Feeling overwhelmed with FO's again. I'm knitting my circular shawl ala E. Zimmerman, knitting half a dozen pairs of socks, and who knows how many crocheted afghans.
Haven't felt much like typing or going online & certainly not reading emails. I'm just overwhelmed with new job, life, balancing work & home, wanting to go back to church but yet, I have so many other issues with faith/church/religion. Just overwhelmed & stressed with everything.

Guidelines are as follows:
1. 12" squares ~ Crocheted or Knitted
2. Any color or fiber of yarn appreciated
3. ANY pattern you choose would be wonderful (I've found the more
a variety of patterns, the more stunning the afghan...
4. Please do not finish off the squares, that will be done when
the assemblier is piecing the afghans together.
PLEA for YARN donations - if you don't feel you want to contribute
to being a square maker - would you enterain the idea of donating yarn?
If so, the guidelines for yarn donations are as follows:
1. There are no guidelines
a. any color
b. any fiber
c. full or used skeins/balls welcome
d. any kind of home (smoking, non-smoking, pets, etc)
Any yarn or square donation will be greatly appreciated.
Please conact Sonni @ firstname.lastname@example.org and she will email
you an address where the squares and yarn donations can be sent.
I just want to thank everyone who helps in this project in advance.
You are putting a smile on someone's face if only for a moment... They
will always cherish these afghans. They have been left with nothing,
and just an afghan made with love ~ will let them know they haven't been
forgotten by us. Please remember the victims/survivors, the President,
the military personnel who are helping in this situation and everyone
else involved or touched by this disaster in your prayers.
You have been trustworthy in a very small matter.

God Bless you for all you do...
It's been a while!
I started a new job, have gotten chatty with some of my relatives via email & our myfamily site, and have just been exhausted all the time - not sleeping.
My new job's only pt, but at least it's a job.
I managed to finish knitting a short sleeved sweater that actually fits, and I've been putting together afghans for the Katrina victums.
