It's Official


Remember a while back I was in something called the square along? And remember when I announced I had made it to the first round draft or rather my square did? Well .... I found out that YES!!!!(ooops sorry) yes, my square is going to be in the blanket that is going in Larisssia's book. I am soooo floored. Me? me? who has only been knitting for 15 months me. Who currently is unemployed, who tried and failed at carrying a child and giving birth to it, me who only went to college for a little while, who at times feels like a failure, yes ME! Don't ask me what the name of the book is yet, I don't know it, as soon as I know I will let you all know. It is to be out next spring. I will keep you updated.

The link below is the link to Larissia's flicker group for the blanket. See if you can find me, I am in the second row from the bottom, thrid one on the right.

Hey, Mary, your square was definite from the very minute I got it. It's one of my favorite squares of all. I'm not sure how long you've been reading my blog, but green and chocolate brown is my favorite color combo and I've been writing about it for a year. I love this square with a special love, sister!
