Itty Bitty . . .

What is this little bit of knitting K.C. is watching over?  A skinny scarf?  A swatch, perhaps?

Nope, it is neither of these things.  This little bit of knitting is actually a baby blanket.  An itty bitty baby blanket. Kathy put out a call for "cookie sheet blankets".  No, not for tucking in cookies!  For tucking in little preemies in the NICU where Kathy works.  They must be machine washable and no larger than a 9 x 13 cookie sheet.  Other than that, you are free to knit it up any way you choose.  She is even making a little contest out of it, so hurry over to sign up.

I am so thrilled to be able to be a part of this.  I have to admit, knitting it up and seeing how small it is breaks my heart.  As hard as I try, I can't imagine a little tiny baby small enough to be covered by this wisp of knitting.  As I knit, I'm pouring love and strength into this blanket and I'm hoping the little one who receives it will feel comforted and strong.

The walk that never ends . . .

Every year, I walk. Every year, I nag you for donations.  Every year, I hope for a cure.  Every year, I walk yet again.

Walk To Cure Diabetes

This year something has changed. Instead of walking with the American Diabetes Association, I'm walking with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. I've been told a higher percentage of the money raised by the JDRF goes towards finding a CURE for diabetes.  That's what I need the most . . . .  a cure.  And that is something that has not changed . . . there still is no cure.

If you are able to help, please click over to my walk page to make a donation. Maybe one year soon, I won't need to walk anymore . . .

Meme Monday - Remember That Time?

I'm going way back to 2006 and rerunning a meme I've done before.  The catch with this meme is that this week YOU have to do the work!  Come on, play along, it will be fun!  I can't wait to see what my witty internet pals come up with!!

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL MEMORY OF YOU AND ME. It can be anything you want--good or bad--BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE. When you're finished, post this on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you.
