The last one I have is the one you took. Stagebear has it now, and will complete it and give it to the hospital in her area.

Today, I received two blankets from MAmaDawn (Lavender's Green & Beach Party), and she included some yarn just for me!
3 skeins of Knit Picks Swish Superwash in Light Coral!

Yesterday, I received two sweet little blankets from jhelanee.

The "Ocean Blues" blanket, and the "Bubble Gum" blanket that pinnut3200 made.

Yay!!!! Our project is almost* complete!

We did a WONDERFUL job, making 19 preemie baby blankets for charity!

* One of our blankets is missing: Summer Blossoms

I still have some of the preemie blankets at my house, ready to be finalized. Most of them need a border, and one of them still needs one section knitted. Also, one of our blankets had a hole in it, so I had to unravel back to that section.

So, there is still work to do on our last blankets.

I completed "Nursery Rhymes" yesterday!


I've finally learned how to do a crochet shell border, and now I'm addicted!


Here is my "to-do" list for the rest of our little blankets:
"Racecar Alley" & "Cloud Nine" - adding border
"Cherry Blossoms" & "Citrus Punch" - knitting last section, and adding border
"Beach Party" - re-knitting two sections and adding border
(there was a hole in this blanket that I could not repair, so I had to frog back through two sections)

Woo Hoo! I've gotten a LOT done on our blankets.
I think I must have gotten a fire lit under me during our last monthly KH knit-along in August. (Turn UFOs into FOs)

I finished FIVE blankets this week!

Angel Kisses (I decided to add a border after all. It's kind of twisted in the photo, but it looks better in person.)


Beach Party (I had to unravel this one back through the last section, because there was a hole in it.)

Here's the section I had to re-knit, with a close view of the crochet border I added:


Citrus Punch (I think the border looks like a lemon rind)


Cloud Nine (It looks ready for a prince or princess!)


And Racecar Alley (Yippee!!)

"Cherry Blossoms"

I should have it complete in a couple days.

Believe it or not, I finished Cherry Blossoms TONIGHT!


I was knitting while watching Season One of "That 70's Show". The time just flew.

I am SO EXCITED to finally finish the last of our little blankets!
