I'll check to see if she's ready for it.

I've noticed that the preemie blankets take a lot longer. Probably because the yarn is thinner, and the needles are smaller.

I wish I could use that as my excuse....... I just had way to many things going on at once. And only that was the only knitting thing!

I'm fine with taking July off, (I can make sure I get my girl's skirts done by their birthdays in July too then, neither are at the beginning)

And it will be fun to see all the new blankets.

Taking July off is fine with me. Even if we all would be happy to keep knitting, I think you deserve a break, which is all the justification needed to me!

Thank you Kellyh57 for the dishcloth pattern book and the Sugar n' Cream yarn! How did you know that I knit a lot of washcloths! I have already eyed a couple of patterns in there to try out. I will post pictures tomorrow, I really wanna get the teacher ones done and out of the way!
I had no idea! I just bought the yarn a few weeks ago and some books to go along with it just to send out for these. Cool coincidence!

Would you all mind if we take a little break? Since it's summertime, it would be nice to have a month free from recordkeeping.

During the month of July, we could each start one or two blankets ourselves, and give them a name. Then, in August, we could post photos of what we have going. Then, we could start sending them out to the other knitters to finish. Does this sound like a good idea?

I'm sure you could use a respite from all the bookwork!!

Lavender's Green
I received Lavender's Green in the mail today. The yarn that I was going to use doesn't coordinate with the other two yarns, so it is back to my stash to find something that will complement the other yarns. Perhaps, I will use a variegated yarn.

Carmen, thank you for the yummy candies. I am in "Knitting Heaven."

Racecar Alley showed up on my doorstep today! It's so adorable!! I'll start working on it after I return home from a weekend trip.
