Depending on your point of view, it was a moment of brilliance or insanity that prompted me to post, “And you know what…I’ll seam it!” to the other crocheters in the Knitters for Obama group. I’m leaning towards brilliance, because take a gander at the gorgeousness that is arriving in my mailbox on a daily basis!


These are the nine squares I’ve received so far, from across the U.S. There will eventually be thirty squares, which Mom and I will seam into a large afghan, #2 on the prize list for the Knitters for Obama drawing. This is going to be a big, warm blankie…perfect as a throw for your bed, or for snuggling under with your honey to watch election returns in November. Or maybe even to take with you to Obama’s Inauguration in January? It’s always cold in D.C. in January…
