It's Wednessday, and I have been totally distracted by all the Inauguration celebration and fashion. On the fashion front, relaxed, yet elegant attire seems to rule. Mixing the expensive with not so expensive - yet still making an elegant statement. It's what our mothers have taught us for years! Common sense in fashion, especially for those of us who are trying to make every penny count. Young designers are coming to the forefront and it's a new age for fashion. So enjoy, incorporate some of these ideas in your own wardrobe and knitting or crochet.

Moving on to the next knit/crochet along...
TAILS OF HOPE FOUNDATION AND their BLANKETED WITH LOVE CAMPAIGN. I have been honored to know Linda Blick and participate in this organization to provide soft knit or crocheted blankets to dogs that are suffering from cancer. I have experienced the anguish of a sick puppy and still cherish the blanket that was given to me by a vet tech. So many times animals are left behind in our society and this is a great way to give back to are friends who definitely know and teach us about love. Linda Blick is a founding board member of this amazing organization which reaches out to dogs and their owners. Some of these owners have reached out themselves and adopted dogs that are already suffering and given them a warm, loving home. Linda has asked for larger blankets, as they receive so many small ones, but whatever you feel comfortable with would be gratefully received. Linda has also kept me updated and sent pics when the owner has provided them and it's a great feeling to see these dogs sitting or laying on the blanket you so lovingly made. The dogs seem to know that these blankets are made just for them. Please visit the website to see all the wonderful work that is being done AND find out some ways you can help.

I will be starting a blanket today (med/large) and will post pictures of my progress. I hope you will join me and invite you to send pics or make comments about your project. I always enjoy hearing about your projects and so do the readers.

Note: If you are unable to afford to send a blanket to Tales of Hope Foundation, than do consider making blankets locally. Check with rescue shelters in your area to see if they are accepting them and what their requirements are.

Interviews are in the works - the knitting experiment update will be posted soon- it's all good knitties!

Marg (totally thrilled today!)
