Thank you all for loving our project as much as I do!

Thanks Nancy! Rest easy...ALL of us will only be knitting once on each of our new rectangle shawls. We can change colors ourselves, and use up our bits of nice yarn. :D

I've added you to "Blue Heaven", "Pure and Natural", and "Forest Walk" as you requested.

I agree, Susan! We should definitely use NICE acrylic. NO SCRATCHY STUFF!! We can also use blends with polyester and nylon or other man made fibers in the mix. As long as we avoid wool in those shawls, we'll be fine. Recently, I made an acrylic shawl (the secret project I was talking about earlier) It turned out nice!

For that shawl, I used all sorts of acrylic yarns, some of them vintage, and all of them soft:
(links go to my Ravelry page for these yarns)
Vintage Caron Color Perfect in Wine
Bernat Satin in Crimson
Vintage Caron Dazzleaire in Mulberry
Caron Simply Soft in Autumn Red
Patons Glittalic in Rose Glow
Vintage Vonnel Love Knit in Red/White

Thanks Nana! You might want to use some of your acrylic yarn for our Oddball Pet Snuggles. Those snuggles really eat up yarn, because you hold two strands together to make the snuggles. Mulderknitter handles those in another discussion thread, so check with her if you're interested.

Thanks Beth!
I've added you to the "Blue Heaven" and "Forest Walk" for your blue and green yarns. I might add you to our "Flower Power" acrylic shawl, which will be made with bright, happy colors. Do you have any bright yellow or lime green yarn?

Some of those photos are GREAT!
Here's a couple examples, so everyone can share in our enjoyment:
"Surfer" Sweaters

"Really Cool" Guys in the 60's


My next post will list all our shawls, with all the knitters.

I received Midnight Passion today in the mail. It is really looking nice. Thanks Lori for the beautiful pink yarn. I will look thru my stash to see what I have to use on this shawl. Maybe I have a LYS trip in my future...

Thank you also for the baby hat. I've added it to my "Make 1 for Morgan" collection. I will be taking all that I collect to the NICU at the hospital in early August.

Lori, did you intend to leave the yarn you used in the bag? If not I will be happy to send it back to you.

So here are the shawls I have to work on at my home right now:
1. Pink Passion (already started)
2. Cotton Fields
3. Midnight Passion

I forgot my yarn in there. I was in a rush that morning. I'll need it to do my other part of the shawl. Sandy, can we just leave it in the bag so that Lia doesn't have to mail it back? Sorry for the inconvenience.

I have both yellow AND bright lime green acrylic yarns, so you can add me to that one too!

And I finished with Sunbeams! I used a coral color, in case I don't get a photo posted.

Sure thing! It can stay with the shawl, to make it easy for you to add your other section later.

Cool! I've added you to the "Flower Power" shawl.

No problem Lori, I will leave your yarn in the bag when I sent it to the next knitter.

Sandy,
Go ahead and add me to Blue Heaven, Forest Walk, Flower Power, Starry Night and Violet Haze.

I really enjoy working on these shawls and look forward to seeing the new styles.
