That is pretty much where I am with my 13 year old daughter.

Have finished both blankets, will take a photo tomorrow and post. It will have to be done by Mobile as I have completely lost the charger for both of my cameras. it is driving me insane, I'm going to end up getting another camera and then losing the charger for that as well.

HIya Nikki

I'm very sorry you're so upset - you sound absolutely exhausted.

I know I've only just joined on here but I'm sure everyone wants you to rest until you're feeling better.:grphug:

I've made the start on Dolly Mixtures and put a couple of pics on here - there's no sweat at all about mailing them or whatever.

I hope you'll be feeling yourself soon.:hug:

All Best Wishes

Ellie

Ellie that is so pretty. When I was knitting on the sweethearts blanket I really liked the idea of using one stitch throughout the blanket.

If everybody agree I think it would be really nice if you put a note in with the blanket telling us the pattern you used. When I knit on it I would like the textured stripes to follow on through the blanket. I think that would be really pretty.

Hi Nikklc
Please take care shock is a nasty thing. I am glad you DS is OK and cars can be replaced!

Karina
Sorry but I couldn't get to the post office today so I will try my best for tomorrow.

Limey
Dollymixtures is lovely and I agree with Karina I think it will look really nice if we all do the same pattern.

Pauline x x x

I am trying to arrange to go away for the weekend to de-stress, ok i have been ordered to go away. i have found a nice hotel not to far from me . just got to sort out if kids are free this weekend to house and dog sit.

Hi Nikki

"ps Ellie i even got 1/2 another hat done lol

************************************************** ********* Oo - you're not feeling at all well, are you?

You haven't seen my sewing up!:roflhard:

Glad you're feeling a bit better.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments about the Angel Cake - oops - Dolly Mixture blanket.

I've set up the blanket with some stitch markers so that the stitch changes can be followed, if anyone would like to carry on with the pattern.

If it's OK, Nikkie, I'll post the blanket to you tomorrow with details of pattern.

Best Wishes

Ellie

PS - Don't worry about crying more when you hear from me - lots of people have said they have that reaction :wink:

You poor thing! :heart: :pout: :heart:
I hope you DO get away this weekend, so you can just completely relax for a bit. You need to let your body and mind and spirit heal. :hug:

Please let me know if I need to do anything. (And you're right....the blankets help keep us sane, don't they?) :wink:

Thank you Sandy
if you could find a big giant piece of bubble wrap to wrap my car in so people will stop hitting my car lol
have sorted out cover for the house and dogs just got to book the hotel now
plan is check in, go to room order room service get knitting out and chill for 24 hrs
All your kind words of support have helped loads. I know i have to take it easy for a while but knitting so helps, and the thought of baby's wrapped in our blankets makes a dark day so much better.

Pauline got the blankets today, blues clues are looking great. The Jelly baby feels very soft Red Heart is that another american import or did you buy in this country.
Now for some serious research into jelly babys colours, Wonder if one bag is enough.
Thanks for the sweets and the yarn can't have enough of that simply soft.

Nikkilc
05-15-2008, 09:51 AM

Hi Karina
I actually used Lion Brand Micro Soft for Jelly babies and it's lovely and soft. I get mine on line from banyantreeyarns. :woot:

05-15-2008, 12:00 PM
Hi Nikki

I hope you are feeling better. All those blankets you have received I think you are going to need to stay in that hotel a while longer!!

Karina
05-15-2008, 01:27 PM
Pauline I realize now that you put the name of the Jelly baby and not Red heart as the yarn. I have the Microspun from Banyantreeyarns. I think next time I place an order I will order a couple of balls of different yarns just to check out the other from the same company.

Nikki glad you got the blankets OK. I agree with Pauline need to book another night in that hotel to get all them blankets finished

Karina
05-16-2008, 09:07 AM
Nikki got Holiday fun this morning thank you for the pen and note book. It is so pretty, will have to hide it from my daughter she is such a theif when it comes to pretty pens.

What colours do you have in mind for holiday fun?

Nikkilc
05-16-2008, 01:18 PM
i did the bright green for fresh new grass and plants
maybe a nice sky blue or what ever you fell suits the theme

So glad you liked the set i fell in love with them too
teach her to knit and she can have one too ;)
my daughter just started knitting she says wants to get a bit better then she wants to help on the blankets yay

nikki the blanket looks great. glad you are feeling more like your old self again. It is so great that your daughter wants to learn to knit.

My daughter tried briefly and then decided it was boring and am not interested. Hopefully when she is a bit older she may have another go.

GiddyKnitter
05-22-2008, 12:51 PM
Hi Nikki
If you need any help with the blankets you are getting off DQ feel free to send them my way.
Today I received a package from Sandy. Some Circular needles and about 8 skeins of yarn. She also sent Little Boy Blue blanket which is gorgeous. As I send out the blankets I will send some yarn also. Is this OK with you? I will work on the blanket over the weekend and then hopefully send it off on Tuesday. Who is working on Little Boy Blue next?
Pauline x x x

Karina
05-22-2008, 01:23 PM
Nikki the same goes for me, I'll work on whatever blanket you send my way. Am I down for little boy blue?

Nikkilc
05-22-2008, 01:29 PM
Thank you Pauline thats very kind of you
once dolly mixture is finished will be sending it to you as well
soon you will have loads to knit lol
if you wish to send some yarn with the blanket that would be good
but keep some for starting new ones with too once we got a few more finished

Nikkilc
05-22-2008, 01:31 PM

Catz
05-27-2008, 05:37 AM
I got a delivery note pushed through the door on saturday. I'm hoping its the blanket. I've organised it to be redelivered to a post office local to me as the main office for parcels is out of the way and no buses go up near there. I'll let you know when I get it on friday.

Karina
05-27-2008, 05:42 AM
Have not been able to make it to the postoffice as my son is sick. Give me a couple of days to get him up and running again and I will send the blankets out.

GiddyKnitter
05-27-2008, 12:10 PM
Hi Karina
Hope your little boy is feeling better.
I didn't manage to post Little Boy Blue today sorry.
I will definately post it tomorrow.x.x.x

Nikkilc
05-27-2008, 02:19 PM
Catz hopefully thats from me

Karina so sorry your little one is unwell. Hope he gets better soon
you should be getting a blanket from me too i posted it Friday

I took a blanket brake this weekend and knitted my 1st lace shawl
now ready to finish 2 more blankets and get them posted all being well by Friday

Hope you all had a good bank holiday

Karina
05-29-2008, 08:47 AM
Here is a photo of Jelly Babies
48544

and a photo of Holiday Fun

48543

for the Holiday Fun I used Elle escapade which is left over from a dress I made for my daughter. It is 100 acrylic and is lovely and soft. Looks like a bunch of flowers to me. it comes in 100g balls with 300 m on each one ball would easily make a blanket on its own and cost just over 2. just though I would let everybody know always on the lookout for nice acrylic yarns for these blankets.
BTW I do not get commission for this:teehee:

They will go in the post today

Catz
05-30-2008, 09:20 AM
I've picked up the package from the postoffice and it is the blanket you sent Nikkilc.

I've also recieved the Jelly Babies blanket today too.

I'm looking forward to working on them. Are they both worked with worsted weight yarn? Or is it double knit? Sometimes I can't tell.

GiddyKnitter
05-30-2008, 09:36 AM
Hi Catz
Jelly Babies is DK as I casted that one on. Dont know which other blanket you have. Hope your well.

Karina
Received Holiday Fun (again) today hehehe It's looking really nice. Thank you for the sweeties and also the ball of yarn. The Elle yarn you used on Holiday Fun is lovely looks like Fair Isle.

Nikkilc
05-30-2008, 05:19 PM
Catz so glad it got there safe
its double knit if i remeber right

I reveived the blankets from Dk today
i will finish off purple passion then its complete
and i will send the other one to Pauline i have another 1 for you too so will send together

its been a bit mad here todayjust got o the pc and its 10pm
i got my car back all fixed so yay
now back to knitting
hope you all have a good weekend
Nikki

Karina
06-03-2008, 04:36 AM
Sorry forgot to tell everybody that I have received Honey's lil monsters thanks Nikki for the yarn and instructions.

I have also got Little Boy Blue, thanks Pauline for the yarn and also to Sandy for sending the blanket and yarn over. The Bernat Softee Baby is lovely and soft. Think I will carry on using that.

Finished my section on Blues Clues, but looking at it I realised that the worsted weight blankets need 6 knitters not 5 so it is a section short so will add one more section to complete it. Looks to short to the width of the blanket.

GiddyKnitter
06-03-2008, 06:20 AM
Hi
Haven't we been quiet this last few days?
I have had a very sore back and a bad migraine since Sunday so haven't done much knitting :( I am going to try and get some of the Elle Escapade for Holiday Fun.
Hope your all well :)

Karina
06-03-2008, 07:59 AM
Pauline hope you feel better soon. If you have trouble getting the Elle let me know and I will get some for you. I do have a couple of balls of the purple colour way. would be willing to share with you.

GiddyKnitter
06-04-2008, 10:06 AM
Thanks Karina
Did you get yours online?
I doubt if my local yarn shop will have it he doesn't stock much Elle yarn.

Nikkilc
06-04-2008, 01:21 PM
So sorry you been unwell Pauline
hope your feeling better.
i think its the weather i had 2 migraines in past week too

Karina

Hi everyone! :waving:

Just wanted to post a quick message. I remember that at one time, some of you were wanting to work on a blanket that would have a design knitted in, with lots of color changes.

I had said that I would add a fabric backing to the blanket for you. Just let me know if you are still doing that. I will be happy to add the back and a border for it. :thumbsup:

Karina
06-16-2008, 06:51 AM
Pauline got Holiday fun thank you for the yarn. I think I am the 5 knitter on it so am I last on the list? I have been delayed in sending out your blankets but hope to have them in the post this week.

Have to go pamper my 13 year old daughter as she stabbed herself in the foot yesterday with one of my dpn's and is unable to walk on the foot. we have been to the Dr and got some antibiotics for her.

GiddyKnitter
06-16-2008, 10:19 AM
Hi Karina
Don't worry about the blanket just look after your DD. Hope she is OK.
I hope she didn't bend your needle when she stood on it :0

Karina
06-16-2008, 11:02 AM
No don't worry the needle is fine, was a size 4mm, it did penetrate quite a bit and was bleeding so she is suffering quite a bit. would never have thought something like that could happen so will have to keep all my needles way out of reach of my 2 year old who loves to play with them.

Nikkilc
06-20-2008, 03:28 PM
So sorry to hear about your daughter Karina hope she gets better soon

I am sorry to hear about your daughters friend. Well done for getting good results and starting Uni.

I did get a note through the door today while at the dentist that I have a package to pick up. did you sent it recorded? will pick up later today.

I am just waiting for my DH and kids to come back from the airport where they picked up my brother. Is going to be staying with us for two weeks. The kids will be very happy to see him, and I just know he will drive me crazy. I do love him though.

Am I the last knitter on the Little Boy Blue blanket. I am beginning the 5th stripe. This blanket is for the preemie babies, right? If it is I think it will be big enough with 5 four inch stripes. I will do a crochet edge around it.

Have finished Loving Hearts blanket and crochet a row of single crochet and then a row of half double (I think US terminology) in white.

5 sections sounds just right, Karina. :)

Sandy I am using the same yarn as you started the blanket with. It is so nice and soft.

Got a couple of more repeats to do then it will be done. Will probably finish it today.

Pauline I need to edge two blankets then they will be on their way to you. Sorry for the delay, my brother have been visiting from Denmark for the past two weeks so things have been a bit up in the air. He went home today and kids start back at school tomorrow so I will have a bit more time on my hands, hopefully.
