I am from Quebec but have been living in BC for several years, in the Kootenay region and no, I haven't hooked up with the Canadian chapter (yet) I am still just trying to get together enough squares to send off amidst all the things I have to do. I wish days were at least 30 hours long and not only 24...more time to knit!! Where do you live?

I have always wanted to visit your part of Canada!!!
Is that you in the picture ??
Oh and I have to tell you I love your squares with the hearts on them...
I have admired them since I first saw them !!
All I did was use up all those little balls of yarn that I couldn't throw out - I used the basic "dishcloth" pattern - size 7 nnedles, cast on 3 stitches, then increase 1 stitch at the beginning of every row up to 135 stitches (using worsted weight yarn). Then, decrease 1 stitch at the beginning of every row down to 3 stitches and bind off. I just knitted until the little balls ran out, and once in a while put in a couple of rows of white. Then, bordered the whole with the white. Simple. Laurie

I watched the Weather Channel this morning. Ear Falls had a tornado and it destroyed a bunch of tourist cabins and one cabin was found in the lake. The two deceased persons were American tourists, their bodies were pulled from the lake and one person remains missing. They had video of the tornado, quite impressive. We rarely get tornadoes up here but it does happen. I've seen them and heard them. Now I'll quit snowing you under with comments! Sorry about that! You prob. already know this but had to tell you.
