Bailchri has started a new preemie blanket. She has named it "Leprechaun" and has visions of it being completed in shades of green.

We need four more knitters and a border patrol.

Signups are open!

Another new blanket has been started by Dimpledapple. She has named it "Lucky Charm". It is going to be a regular worsted weight blanket and needs five more knitters and a border patrol.

Signups are open for this one!

I sent Wizard of Oz out today to Nancy and I'm so mad at myself for not getting a picture first! I ALWAYS a picture if not just to post here but also to keep for my personal stuff...it's fun to look at my pictures and see the blankets I've worked on. I added my blue section to represent munchkins (but it also sort of reminds me of the color of Dorothy's dress) to a beautiful "Emerald City" green. Confirmation: 0496 9001 2840 3909 2961

I also finally got Superheroes sent out to Tania. I'm really looking forward to seeing her section and all that follow it! Our group is the only one to post a picture of either of the challenge blankets but hopefully once the other groups see our blankets progress they'll start getting to theirs too! I can't wait to see all of the blankets!

Janet posted sign ups for Leprechaun, our newest preemie blanket. Here is a picture of it so far - it's ready to be sent out as soon as sign ups are complete. My vision for this blanket is to be in shades of green - we need more boy blankets I like the look of smaller stripes rather than the lager chunks of color (especially for the preemie blankets) so my section was done with 2 different shades of green but still totals 4 inches. It would be nice if other people would follow that idea, but it's not required, of course. To help with it, I'm sending along some yarn so you can add a small bit of it if you choose (or maybe you have your own 2 shades).

Happy Knitting, all!

PS - is it just me or is flickr different again.....arrrrgh!

I'd love to knit on Lucky Charm. Leprechaun is such a great idea, is it knit using the sport weight yarn or regular? I would to get in on as many blankets as I can but of course, I certainly don't want to deprive anyone of an opportunity!! I like the idea of doing some more boy blankets, maybe we can think of some themes.. hmmm....

What stitch is this??? It's so interesting, it looks like the double crochet stitch.

Spring Fling Border Completed
Hi Everyone,

I just completed the border on Spring Fling. I've added a row of flowers in a pale lilac Caron SS.



And here is the close-up of the border:



I've also put the images in the flickr pool.

Hugs and happy stitching,

Kae

I found the stitch here; it's called Grill. Also, to answer your other question, this is a preemie blanket so it's knit with DK/sport yarn.

Cupid & Wizard of Oz
Cupid and Wizard of Oz arrived today.

Carol and Bailey, thank you for the pincushion and ornament. It is always nice to receive small surprises with the blankets.
