Hi and welcome DJ bug!
I will be casting on Snuggle buddy this week and will start another one probably shortly after. (dunno, reds??? haven't done reds yet???) Would you like to work in blue's or another color scheme? You can do variegated in blues if you want for Snuggle buddy, or you can do anything that goes well with it. Like Sandy said, sometimes I wait to get the blanket from the knitter and take it to the store to see what will go well. You will just need 2 strands of worsted weight yarn held together, and you will be set!
If you want to work on snuggle buddy just let me know, i will do a bit of rearranging so that you won't be the last knitter on it.
Please pm me your address and what blanket you want to be on, and I will get you on the list! Don't forget, we are always here (always, really, I work on a computer at work and constantly check this site
) to answer any questions you might have.
