Secret Blanket Project

About 5 months ago, a bunch of us got together to knit blanket squares for one of our friends in the Elann Chat group. There have been lots of communication under the radar to plan this, and we've all been bubbling with excitement about the project but couldn't really talk about it too much openly. We agreed on a color scheme, made sure to evenly distribute the colors among the knitters so we wouldn't have too many of one color, and agreed to make the squares to a certain gauge/size to make assembly easier. Bets compiled Blankie Tales which told stories about each square, and she posted tips for a successful blanket project here. This was a fun collaborative project.

Well, we can now finally talk about the Secret Blanket Project. :-)

No need to rehash what others have already said so well. You can read the stories behind Cheryl's blanket here:
