Just a quick one

I've just Googled 'Oliver's Blanket' to see what came up. And I'm astounded, gob-smacked, speechless. Not only am I at the very top of the pile, but there are loads of people who have blogged about this. People who I've never even heard of (and plenty who I have heard of as well).

Thank-you all so much!
The blankets will be wonderful. The American one looks like it's going to be Kaffe inspired, which has left me very excited. For the chance to win this beauty, please donate some money to Oliver's Fund. We have sold over 600 tickets so far - even buying just one ticket will help to buy Oliver's new Flip Flop Blue wheel chair. I'm very happy that this simple idea has taken off so well. I bow down to your generosity.

So which clever person can tell me what happened to the spacing up there? I pressed the return key exactly the same on all occasions.

It really is me isn't it?

No it isn't you - its blogger. I get the same thing no matter what I do. have you figured out how to cross out a work without erasing it yet? That is one of my great mysteries.
I just donated to Oliver's fund (cause I will never get a square completed - I know my limitations. I put in $10 of yours. Great job on organizing!!!

Thank you for organizing it all! :) I sent my 6 squares to New York earlier this week. I'm excited to see them join the other squares in the design.

Hya. Have you got a link so that we can see the 'over the pond' blanket squares? I've got 7 and a half squares so far. Aiming for ten to send. This is really such a good project. All the Best. Merry. No, my surname isn't Christmas!

Hi, Me again! While browsing the various knitting/craft blogs I have discovered since finding you, I came across Kristy (okwhatnext)and her tiny sweaters. I did try to post a request for a simple starter sweater pattern but it didn't seem to take. I noticed you had also posted on there. How did you manage it? M

I don't know Merry! I just clicked on the comments button and hey presto it worked. If I can do it, so can you!

Thanks Michaela. Have just tried again and it worked! Am really enjoying all the blogs I have discovered through you, one leads onto another, onto another and so on. Absolutely fascinating. I feel quite craftily inspired! M
