I'm glad you decided to add a few acrylic to the mix. Nice acrylic mind you, but Caron simply soft is readily available to most knitters and is pretty darn cheap. There are also a few other major companies that make a nice soft acrylic in several weights, I appreciate the variety!

No, we need to use really NICE yarn for the shawls. Don't worry, I have PLENTY of nice yarn that has been donated for our shawls. (My cousin owns a yarn shop.) So, I'll be more than happy to send you some yarn to use when you work on them.

I really appreciate your offer but I am more then willing to get what ever yarn is needed. I just was hoping to find a use for some of my acrylic yarn.

I am just proud to be apart of your group.

With my DH having Cancer I know how good it felt when I received my shawl . This is a Great Cause!

So, maybe we SHOULD make a few acrylic shawls, just in case.

I'll cast on a few for our next round.
Well add me to that list too! I have tons of it .

In colors of :

Dark brown
White
Cream
Pink
Dark Blue
Tan
Variegated Forest Medly (dr,green,brown,tan,beige,dr orange
Gold

Welcome, Nanaof6! I am only Nana to 1, but he is very busy and sometimes it seems like there are 6 of him

Sandy, I would really like to help on Blue Heaven and Pure and Natural if you still need knitters. Midnight Passion went out to Luvmykid28 Thursday (with delivery confirmation). The postmistress said it should arrive Monday or so. I don't have the slip here handy but do let me know if you need the tracking numbers. I am so excited about the new shawls

For the Forest Walk Shawl, what type of yarn do you recommend. I LOVE having a reason to go to my LYS!!

How will I know what color to buy?

From my own experience, a lot of people wait until they get the blanket/shawl in the mail to take it to their lys and match colors. That's what I usually do!

Wow! You don't check in for a while, and there are a whole new slew of shawls ... in exciting new shapes! Sandy, you can sign me up anywhere you need a knitter - I've got blue and and green for sure, and neutrals too, most likely. Animal and acrylic, but most of my acrylic is baby colored for the oddball baby blankets ...

And I got Sunbeams last week - my dh got it while I was at the shore with the kids. Thanks for the pattern book! The patterns ARE nice, and the photos are a riot

Me too. I've found the times I try to plan ahead, I often get the wrong shade. I've only had it work really well with the grays and black and whites.

And welcome nanaof6! These oddball projects gave me a sense of belonging too when I first joined ... still do, truth be told
