Katie,
I received Blueberry Chocolate in the mail today. I have already picked the blue variegated I want to use--just need to find a milk chocolate color to go with it. Thanks so much for the tin of mints--I love those things--put it right into my purse!

I'm glad it arrived safely. That sounds like a great color combination!

I'm all mixed up. I've got so much going on that I'm not tracking things properly. I was keeping a list offline, but I haven't had a chance to update it in the past several weeks.

I have sent Blueberry Chocolate on to bugsyblacklab. I took a picture and uploaded it to my Amazon Cloud drive and now it has been blocked at work. I have been using it from here so I guess that is a recent change. I have pictures of Green Pastures on there too.

I finished Starry Night and am sitting on it -- I thought it was going to cheley, and have gotten her address, but I see now that it is supposed to go back to susauehl. It's a good thing I haven't sent it yet.

Many apologies to cheley and susauehl and I will get that blanket out in the mail tomorrow.



I used Red Heart Super Saver Soft Navy and Vanna's Choice Charcoal Print.

I have Cloud Nine to finish; I have lots of uncoordinating multi-color yarn and would like to get a nice white or ecru for the second color. Just haven't gotten to it.

I think that's all of the ones I've been sitting on.

How is everyone else doing?

That looks great, Susan! Thanks for sharing!

Two more pictures from me:

Green Meadows:




Vanna's Choice in Olive Green and Loops and Threads in Folklore. (I think that was the name.)

Blueberry Chocolate:



Red Heart Super Saver in Soft Navy and Vanna's Choice in Mountain Print.

I was not able to find any cotton yarn at Michael's so I went home and checked my yarn "trunk". I found a great match inside of there -- Bernat Handicrafter in a varigated blue/green and Bernat Cottontots in a soft green that matched! So that's what ended up using for Cloud Nine -- I only have a few more rows to go. It went a lot easier than I expected it to and I'm surprised that I had such a hangup about cotton. It must have been because of the netting that I normally use with it.

Is there any interest in working on another blanket? Susan and I will both have empty needles here shortly -- I'd like to start a list to make sure we have enough knitters before either of us casts on.
