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.

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.

Jelly babies and Holiday Fun

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

They will go in the post today

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.

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.

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.
