I received mountain hike in the mail the other day- have been so busy that I haven;t even opened it yet. About to go get it now

Just opened it- Thank you so much for the goodies!!

I see that it has browns in it- think just a green section would be ok? Trees are green

Welcome back! Hope you had a good time. I am not sure how to find the spreadsheet for the blankets if it is posted. Could you let me know.
Thanks!

You're welcome, does our blanket smell like mint?

Green sounds fine...wish we had more of that in the hills of Texas right now.

Pink Poodle is in the mail!

Delivery Confirmation Number: 0311 0240 0000 6027 2132

I had three packages to mail and didn't send any of them priority, which is odd because I normally *always* use priority. Coming off a long weekend, I guess I wasn't thinking properly.

Hi everyone!
I bet you were all wondering where I've been.

As soon as I got home from California, I got sick with a killer cold. I spent several days in bed, and am just now beginning to get better. I went to the doctor yesterday, and she said I have a bad sinus infection. I'm now on antibiotics, using an inhaler and nasal spray, and running a vaporizer.

My voice sounds bizarre!
If I were an actress, I could easily get the part of a Star Trek alien right now.

I think green will be perfect!

I just keep the spreadsheet on my computer. There's only 10 of us, so it works fine for now.

We use two strands of worsted weight for all our blankets. Chunky is not quite thick enough, I don't think....but I could be wrong. I guess the only way to know would be to knit a gauge swatch with the chunky, and another swatch with two strands worsted, and see how they measure up to each other.

Susauehl has just started a new snuggle for us!

It's called "Autumn Run", and makes me think of a dog and cat playfully chasing each other, while leaves are falling all around.


She has finished the first section, and is ready to mail it to the next knitter. She used size 11 needles, with two strands of worsted weight acrylic. One color is Dark Sage and the other is a variegated called Fall.

Now, we need 4 more knitters for Autumn Run.

Hi Katie,

Pink Poodle landed in my mail box today. Thank you so much for the mints--they are greatly appreciated.

I picked out some Shocking Pink RHSS and an I Love This Yarn stripe in Pomegranite that I think I will try together. I will post a picture when my section is done.

You're welcome. That's what my section was made from -- one RHSS and one I Love This Yarn.

Can we please get an updated list of who and where all the blankets are? I'm mostly wondering how close I am to getting either of the other two I signed up for and whether or not I should sign up for Autumn Run. (I'm getting antsy again. LOL)

Thanks!
