"Love You Forever" is the only blanket in progress right now. my3boys should be mailing it to traceleighj. Has it been mailed yet?

We'll put a hold on the other 3 blankets that stagebear started until she comes back.

In the meantime, I'll start some simple blankets we can work on for charity. They won't be based on books.

I'll cast on 5 blankets, and mail each of them to 5 different knitters. That will get us busy!

We'll just get started, then finish adding knitters to each blanket as they are ready to move on.

Orange Fluff (orange and white)
Candy Shop (candy colors)
Sweet Dreams (pastels)
Ocean Waves (blues, greens, aquas)
Happy Princess (pink, purple, and white)

Who wants to knit on a blanket?


(By the way, if stagebear does not return when these blankets are complete, they will be donated with traceleighj's other blankets in the Midwest Great Lakes region.)

Add me to one! Me and Tracie live close to each other, so if you want to put us in order together it saves on shipping for both of us. We just meet for coffee and knitting and pass the blankie!
Thank you for taking over. I sure hope stagebear is ok

Thanks so much!
I'm going to send a card to stagebear to see how she's doing. If any of the rest of you already have her address, you can send a card as well if you want.

Shandeh-
If you want me to start a blanket, I would be more than happy to!

Thanks, Tracie!

I just cast on "Orange Fluff" last night.

You can just look in your stash, and see what yarns you have that will work for another blanket. You can name it yourself, too.

I have some variegated baby yarn in sport weight that is white, blue and green, would that work to cast on for Ocean Waves?
