"Flower Garden" has been to my house twice: first in March and now again a month later. It has grown considerably and is far prettier in person than in the photos.
Flower Garden is a product of the charity knitters at KnittingHelp.com. Sandy, a maven or organization, prepares spreadsheets to keep track to the many oddball projects. Right now, there are more than 75 blanket projects in progress. I consider myself an organized person, but she is light-years ahead of me. Sandy coordinates the knitters on the projects, supplies the addresses when the knitters are ready to forward the project, and adds the finishing touches of fringe or edging. She is awesome, and the forum is blessed to have her as the moderator and coordinator.
This is what Flower Garden looked like when I first received it in March.
One month later, its appearance has changed completely.
It is like finding that your child has grown into a teenager overnight.
Update: March 6, 2009
"Flower Garden" is finished and ready to be given to a KnittingHelp.com forum member who is experiencing a difficult situation.
