Seaside Park and Circus Circus Are Complete!
I received the finished Seaside Park and Circus Circus in the mail from MGM. Thanks for the lovely gift, MGM.

The blankets are really awesome. I know the folks at Bridgeport Hospital will get a real 'kick' out of the Bridgeport-themed blankets.

Thanks, everyone for your help in creating the above.

hey everyone!
I just got back from our band trip to disney world, where we marched in a parade through magic kingdom, and I was thinking of some ideas for new blankets.
I don't really have time to start any new blankets, but if anyone wanted to, I came up with some ideas.
for example, what about one called A Whole New World and making it colors of a flying carpet (blues, yellows, reds, purples white)
or, Under The Sea with marine colors (bright pinks, yellows, blues greens)
or, Hakuna Matata (it means no worries. . . the lion king) with the colors of the sunset ( oranges, reds, yellows)
anyways, disney is amazing and it just made me think, what do kids love? disney.

happy knitting!

Great ideas, sarahbean!

I would be happy to start two new worsted weight weight blankets using two of your themes, A Whole New World and Under the Sea.

So, knitting friends, we will create two more worsted weight blankets for our Northeast Oddball Project as follows:

A Whole New World: blues, yellows, reds, purples, whites, etc.

Under the Sea: bright blues, bright greens, bright pinks, bright yellows...bright, bright, bright!

If you are interested, please send me a PM and I will add you to the list.

Thanks, sarahbean, and I'm glad DisneyWorld was fun!

Hi everyone,

Spikey has made a good point about Under the Sea, which is currently circulating as a preemie baby blanket. Therefore, I won't start Under the Sea as a worsted weight blanket until the preemie blanket is completed and out of circulation.

I did the same thing at Disney World about 25 years ago!
