ellie, the blankets are sent on the needles as they are less lickly to drop stitches that way
once blankets are finished the needles either go back to the person who started the blanket or used to start new blankets.
at the moment there are 11 blankets in different stages of completion and urs will be blanket number 12
with 2 complete
we are on a roll ladies thank you

Hi Nikki

Many thanks for your answer - I'm new to blanket threads and thought an explanation on here might clarify the situation for anyone else who wasn't too sure how things worked.

All the Best

Ellie

Well after working my way through the bag of Jelly Babies I have decided on the Blackcurrant colour and on the back of the bag it gives you names of the different babies and Blackcurrant is called "Big Heart".
So ladies you will have to buy your own Jelly Babies and decide which colour you are going to use. This will be a lovely colourful blanket.
Nikklc I do hope you have got rid of that nasty Migraine I suffer from them so I know how you feel xx

Pauline you are confusing me by changing your name. Got the blanket this morning. thank you for the yarn. very soft. I have a pattern for that gauge of yarn that I want to start at some point so will have a play around with your yarn and see how it will look knitted up.

I'm so glad you started with the orange because I have yellow but no orange.

Oh! The sacrifices one has to make to be a dedicated knitter!

We're not only stuck on Jelly Babies but we'll have to go and buy a packet of Dolly Mixtures as well!

There's something weird that happens to knitters - there's no scientific explanation but it is a well-known fact that knitters just cannot remember what sweets look like and as we're a very conscientious bunch and strive for authenticity in all things, we have no choice at all but to hit the nearest supermarket sweetie aisle.

PS - If someone suggests a chocolate theme, I'm emigrating! - I'll be as big as a house side before before you can say and purl.

If it's gloom and and grey you're after, you're in the right place! but I'm nipping out the back now to catch a few rays.

I hope you'll be feeling better very soon - migraines are horrible things.

All the Best
