Claudette, Jeanine and Barbara

So I went to one of our yarn partners last weekend, and Gisele (of Wool 'n' Things) had a bunch of blankets for me. There were 18 blankets from Claudette! Claudette, not sure who you are exactly (post a comment so I know) but you are absolutely marvelous.

Okay, here are Jeannine's items. I put my favorite one in first. This blanket is gorgeous - its woven (Douce Aubergine's mommy is also an amazing weaver, as well as a knitter)

Two more knit blankets from J and a bevy of socks....

Barb heads up the Japanese arm of Warm Hands. Here are 3 lovely blankets she sent in. Barb, thanks so much for the extra yarn - we try to join all pairs of socks before we send them to the community.

Jeanine and the Germans

Sounds like a band, doesn't it? Josie and the Pussycats/Jeanine and the Germans?
So the initial trickle of items coming in is turning into a small continuously flowing river. This week, items came in from Jeanine, the Germans and Barb of Japan.

Jeanine and Barb, I'll be putting your stuff in a separate post, 'cause it looks like this one is overflowing.

So here is the route for the German stuff: Germany-St-Georges-Ottawa-Montreal-Goosebay. Jeanine, who was one of the very first Warmhanders and has been a great cheerleader on Ravelry, picked up the stuff from Esther in Quebec and brought it to my place. Here is Aubergine's mommy herself. In her right hand are German socks, and in her left is a blanket she made herself:

Okay, you fabulous German sock superstars, the name of the game is "find your socks". Take a look at the pictures below and see if you can find the socks you sent in.
