It looks great! And thanks for the yarn Spikey... I've never used that kind before... Now I just need to find what I can make with it. (Hey you just gave me an excuse to knit, can't now use it, THAT would be RUDE )
I'm glad it got there so fast! You are quite welcome. Enjoy the yarn.

What do you think about Bernat Baby Coordinates? I have some in "Lemon" yellow that I think will work on the Citrus Punch. It's washable, DK weight but not 100% acrylic (has some nylon in it). It's kinda floofy. I don't know how to describe it I found some Baby Bee at HL that I liked, but it said bulky weight. I honestly could not tell the difference between that and the other stuff that was listed as sport or DK. I think it was mis-labeled or something. I can go back and get it if you guys don't think the Baby Coordinates will work.

You ladies are WONDERFUL!!!
Thank you SO much for getting your own blanket started!
Your yarns make me think of a bright summer day. Maybe you can come up with a summer theme for it.

Excellent! You're not being hoggish - just GENEROUS!

I have some Baby Coordinates myself, and I honestly think it will be FINE for the blankets. It's mostly acrylic, and there is no wool at all, so it should not be a problem.

I agree with you 100%. It is NOT bulky weight. I have some of that yarn as well, and use it for the blankets all the time.

You all are so cool.
You only need one more knitter, if you want me to finish it up.

If you prefer to keep it in the UK for one of your hospitals, you'll need TWO more knitters.

Have you decided on a name for the blanket yet?
