I wanted to say a very public THANK YOU! to GMMARTON for suggestion Project Linus to me late last year in this thread.
My extended family coordinated a family project blanket and we just finished it. I contacted my local chapter and plan to donate it this week. Pictures are on my blog here
Not everyone was a knitter so I had to learn a new craft with loom knitting. It was fun and we're already planning our next blanket! We're located all over the east coast so we're hoping to give blankets to each region.
