Sure! Just send me a PM with your mailing address, and I'll get you on the list.

Elisa, we are NOT using superwash. Just plain old wool. I think that superwash would probably be okay, though. But we don't HAVE to use it.

I somehow can't sit and make a whole charity blanket myself..and I think this is a fantastic way to do this. We should always have three at a time going! haha.

Though I'm not sure I caught the measurements our squares should be? And are we all sending squares to one person to be seamed, or are we knitting, sending to the next person, and then knitting ours?

Hi! i am sure sandy will answer you later as well, but for this blanket, the first person (Sandy) casts on 300 stitches, knits for 3 inches, then mails it to the next person needle and all, as well as any goodies they want to send the next person (optional). then, that person joins their yarn, and knits for three inches, then mails it to the next person. when you are ready to mail it, sandy will pm you with the next person's address.

hope you are still interested. if so, pm sandy (kh name Shandeh)with your address, and she will add you to the list! thanks!

Thanks Melissa! You did an EXCELLENT job answering kashadilla's questions!


Kasha, we are not knitting squares. We each knit 300 stitches for 3 inches when we receive the blanket at our home address. Then, we mail it to the next person in line. (just as Melissa described above.)

Thanks for sending your address!
