Girl Scout Project - the conclusion

(photo taken near Grand Prospect, Rattlesnake trail, Winery approach, two days before the August full moon)

I thought people would be interested in the conclusion of the Girl Scout Project I posted about last month. Reprinting with permission (be sure to check out her photos; it looks like she had fun):

Dear fellow knitters and members of my community,

Warm and heartfelt greetings to all of you who helped me with my Girl Scout Gold Award project, whether you knitted squares, blankets or donated blankets, helped with publicity, spread the word through your personal or business networks or allowed me to put up donation boxes, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Because of you I exceeded my goal of donating 30, mostly hand knit blankets to UGM Women and Children's Shelter. On August 7th, I delivered 45 blankets. I couldn't have done it without each and every one of you contributing good wishes, blankets, squares and yarn.

You may be interested to know that help came from California, Sweden, Minnesota, and many communities from around the Puget Sound. Children to Seniors, male and female all pitched in. Some of you included touching stories and thoughts when you sent your squares. I have certainly learned that knitters are a warm and caring community!

If you would like to see pictures of many of the blankets from the project, they are available for viewing.

Thank you for making this an unforgettable experience!
