So this is a blog post that I’ve put off forever because–to be honest–the blanket still isn’t finished…and I’ve worked on this blanket, on and off, for a couple of years! But I do love my knitted Aran blanket!
I’m not much of a sports fan, but even I know that ferocious animals are popular mascots for a team, be it Bulls, Bears, or Eagles. So imagine my surprise when I first learned about the mascot for the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC)–the decidedly un-ferocious banana slug! UCSC folks lovingly know him as Sammy the Slug.
