My local rep accepted the blankets and told me the ones we made would be on their way to Japan. I was bawling by the time I made it back to my car. You see, we finished the blankets weeks ago (okay, maybe months), well before the earthquake. I've felt terrible that I haven't had time to drop them off. But now I know they were meant to go to Japan.
It's a great project for little fingers just learning how to tie. Disclaimer: this picture is not one of the ones we made.
