The project has been complete for a bit, and sent off to Sundara awaiting the arrival of her first baby. I heard from her today via email, and she was thrilled to receive it. I now have to finish writing up the final draft of the pattern before I put it up for sale. All proceeds will go to The Sick Children's Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. Pattern will include the baby block as well.
I enjoyed this whole process so much. The enthusiasm which it generated in our Ravelry group, Sundara Yarn Love, was tremendous. Everyone was so generous with their time and their yarn. Without the 39 women who participated in the blanket (I was the 40th) and the 6 women who contributed to the baby block, the whole project never would have happened. I was encouraged by everyone from the start, and that kept me going, especially when the assembly began to be overpowering. I would definitely be up for another group project at some time in the future. It was a wonderful experience.
