I've sent an e-mail out to those I'd received confirming e-mails from. Deb, I guess I didn't get an e-mail from you (cyber black holes are so annoying sometimes).
So our group at this time is:
Deb, Holly, Leslie, Danielle and me. If you all know of anyone else that would like to join, let them know I'm starting to get things moving again. Depending on everyone's wishes, we'll start up soon, or wait till after the Christmas knitting rush is done.
Things to think about: How big do we want to make these blankets? Preemie blankets run from 12 to 16 inches square.
Baby blankets run from 30 to 36 inches.
Child sized blankets are 42 to 48 inches.
Yarn choice is acrylic for easy care. I find the Simply Soft too slippery for babies... Red Heart WW Supersaver washes up very soft and is light weight. Most of the preemies will have cotton receiving blankets between them and the blankets we make.
Recent FO:Damask just needs a handle and some waxed cording.
3 pair of clogs
OTN: Wonderful Wallaby for dd(on hold)
Pigeldy done but needs to be seamed and felted
Thorne market bag
Clogs (to replace shawls)
In line to be cast on:Clogs (2 more pair)
scarf for ds
cat scarf for ds#2
2 booga bags
I saw your post on ravelry - I'd love to join! Can I pm you my info? My pc died this week, and I haven't really figured out this Mac my dh brought over from his office. (Notice I managed to figure kh and ravelry out though)
Let me know if that's okay!

Working on ... Central Park Hoodie, socks!, another baby blanket ...
Recent FOs ...baby blankets, v-neck sweater!, Nakiska headband, socks
I think I got the e-mail sent back to you this time I can't believe how big a dope I am!
On size: The others, I thought were supposed to be around 25 inches. I would vote for regular baby blanket size. (Around 30") I think they would be able to use them longer.
Beth, just send me an e-mail or IM here or on Ravelry. Whatever works. Need Name and address. Thanks for joining us!
Deb--regular size sounds good to me. We can just keep sending them round and round till they are big enough! Or if we get enough people, just once around will do it! So far it looks like six or seven are willin' and able!
Hello Log Cabin Knitters!
Just wanted to let you all know that I heard from Snowbear, and she is okay. She said that she's had a hard time, but she has survived. I'll let you all know more as I hear about it.
