Here's a photo of one of the blankets I just finished. It was a group project I started on the Knitting Help Forum back in 2007. I cast on 300 stitches, knit for a couple inches, then left it on the needles, and mailed it to the next knitter. Each knitter added their section of knitting, then left it on the needles and mailed it to the next person...and so on...and so on...including 20 different knitters. After a couple years, the postage started getting ridiculous. So, I asked the last knitter to mail it back to me, so I could finish it up at home. I knit the last 12 inches of sections (beginning with the green section with purple flowers). Now, it's ready to go to charity!

3" scars are really impressive! I'm happy to hear that the replacements are working for you.
The African Motif is also on Ravelry. I'm using my own color scheme, but the pattern is Heidi Bear's. It's a motif you can use for a purse, a pot holder, an afghan, whatever.
I'm sewing them together - I'm about half way through. Then will need to do the border. My friends b-day is today, so I need to get busy and finish it. I won't see her until next Friday and hope to have it finished by then.
How's yours coming along?

I did not design the blanket but modified a pattern called "Baby Granny Three Ways." I love the way it turned out and since there were three different pattern stitches, I did not get bored working on it. I made some modifications which I plan to post on Ravelry along with the picture. I can't wait to get this to her.
