    Second FiberKind Birthday Blanket

    Well, we are still waiting on what seems to be a very slow postal service, but I thought it was time to vote on the second birthday blanket.

    We will let the voting go until September 27th at Midnight Eastern in the US. I am hoping that gives enough time for everyone to vote!

    Please understand that if you make suggestions that our assembler may or may not be able to incorporate them.

    I hope you like these as much as I do!

      Another great blanket, whichever design is used! You know, I feel like we should have a gallery on the front page to show off things like this and those lovely bags TexasPurl does for the Bag Lady Club. A talented group like this should swagger a bit now and then!

          It appears the first picture is the winner!!! Woot!

          Now that we seem to have the bugs worked out, this should go smoother.

          Does anyone have any questions for our second winner?

          (Suppose I should draw a name. Hmmm. Tomorrow!)

          My question is - does our winner have any pets? I love our pets.

                A clue as to where our blanket is going:

                Our blanket has to travel approximately 1,200 from our assembler to our winner. If USPS takes the most direct route, the package will cross four states to reach its destination.

                  I can't remember the assembler's state.

                Hmm, a tactile cold weather blanket knitter stash coveter.

                Somewhere in the northerly US but it's the blanket knitter I'm not sure about. I don't see a lot of knitted blanket FO's. I should have asked a different question!

                  You can still ask a question if you choose! But don’t delay - the package will arrive soon I am sure.

                Spoiler alert! It's me 😁 just look at this gorgeous blanket, our anonymous blanket assembler outdid themselves! This will be a treasured heirloom forever. Thank you so much to all who contributed their beautiful work and to our very talented assembler, my heart is full! Also, a big thank you to Natalia who sent a beautiful pair of her hand made socks for the winner of the first blanket but since she won that one our assembler sent them on to me. They are just beautiful and I will put them to good use! God Bless you all! 🤗

                  Thank you all so much! It is definitely a work of art to be treasured always. pinesprairie I have made so many blankets over the years both crochet and knit. Last year I did 5 or 6 big adult size blankets but that was before Char started the monthly community charter so I never posted pics. This year so far I have only made 2 but winter is a coming so we'll see. I'm gonna try weaving one as soon as I can figure out how to do the double heddles.
